CREATIVE LEADERSHIP: ASSIGNMENT 14.2 CREATIVE VISUALIZATION REVIEWS

205 views 0 Comment

Last week my classmates and I practiced creative visualization. A very fun and exciting excercise of looking into future we want to see come to fruition. The scene is set 3 years from now. Each of us shared our hopes and dreams. Two stories that really resonated with me the most were Heather Meyer and Tim Coffin’s. Both of them reflected on positive outcomes while acknowledging some difficulties along the way.

 

Heather wrote about the time she found herself back at MCAD to compete her Masters in Sustainable Design and finding her purpose in the program.

Weekly Blog Review

This past week we got to do some experiential learning and practice creative leadership in a safe and trusted group settings. We both facilitated and participated in guided exercises and we sought and provided personal feedback to our peers. Therefore the blog reviews I picked for this week reflect back on some of the questions posed and lessons learned from the group studies.

TAKING A MOMENT TO PAUSE AND SMELL THE ROSES…

As every other blog review post I start with my favorite. Seth Godin’s blog. This week I emailed my professor with one of his posts titled The thing about maps and proclaimed how coincidental and intriguing it is that Seth’s blog posts overlap and complement the lessons we are working on in class! I was delighted! Of course, the reality is I’m more in-tune with my surroundings,

FLIPPING OVER THINGS

After enjoying the assigned weekly reading for my Creating Leadership class, The FLIP manifesto by Dan Pink I was reminded of a book I was gifted last year called “Around the year with Emmet Fox”, a book of daily readings. I loved it because I found it to be witty and clever. An easy read, reflecting a day in a year of his life. Each day not connected to one before or the one after.

WEEKLY BLOG AND READING REFLECTIONS

This week I choose to shake things up with my blog selection and cover 2 of the blogs I haven’t made any reflections in the past.

Blog Posts worth noting for the week

This week was little crazy to say the least. I am traveling for work, hopping from one country to another every 2 days. While it sounds really fun (it is most of the time) it is really exhausting. The natural balance and sleep schedule get completely messed up. On top of it the expectation is (not sure if this is of others or myself,

Turning Tables!

I am really enjoying my weekly assignments and exploring different resources and references in quest for my own leadership style. Last week I blogged about blogs and this week I’m tasked with blogging about my fellow classmates and their reflections.  Whilst the processes of reading everyone’s posts I realized that some of the same names keep popping up to the top of my list. Their witty voices and use of visuals in presenting their personal goals are somewhat aligned with mine,
