Raising Our Personal and Collective Creative Intelligence to Wiser Levels

Have you ever yearned to find a solution for a complex design challenge that could improve the quality of life?

Have you ever glimpsed the potential of your own creative spirit to source the inspiration and guidance needed to help support the emergence of a better world?

Have you ever witnessed the magnificence of an innovation team tapping the power of their collective wisdom and creative intelligence to bring their innovations on-line in ways that change our world – for the better?

 

Considering various future scenarios in our world and work, our unique approach to breakthrough innovation begins with the premise that we cannot solve a problem at the same level of thinking (consciousness) that created it.

“The world we have made as a result of the level of the thinking we have done thus far creates problems that we cannot solve at the same level (of consciousness) at which we have created them. We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if humankind is to survive.” —Einstein


Our programs inspire you to understand, develop, and raise your creative intelligence and potentials for breakthroughs in creativity and innovation through a rich blend of dynamic personal and collective intelligence skills that are profoundly needed in these VUCA times (i.e. Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous times).

These enhanced skills include:

  • Learning to read the world with mindful, clear presence
  • Understanding the generative nature of personal and collective intelligence
  • Understanding the phases and stages of the creative process
  • Tapping the power of mindfulness, deep reflections, and quiet mind skills for recognizing dynamic breakthrough ideas
  • Personal and team protocols for discovering innovative responses to opportunities and challenges
  • Learning to listen to whispers and not wait for screams
  • Developing our capacity to embrace ambiguity as a vital skill for becoming more creative, both as individuals and as teams
  • Applying integral insights from complexity science and neuropsychology of creativity
  • Developing synergy through dynamic tension of knowing and unknowing, mastery and mastery, generative and receptive mind skills.

Our dynamic, highly interactive, and experiential learning experiences can be adapted to meet the creative needs and interests of a wide range of audiences – ranging from intimate explorations with small, intact creative design teams, to keynote presentations for larger audiences and diverse groups of professionals seeking to increase their capacity for breakthroughs in innovation that contribute to the triple bottom line.

Embracing the creative imperatives of these dangerous and exciting times, this compelling workshop is intended to inspire those who seek to discover solutions and creative responses to the design challenges of these times by refining their cognitive capacity to access more refined and creative levels of personal and collective consciousness.

Weaving a wide array of insights and methods from their extensive experience guiding creative teams around the globe into the frontiers of innovation research, the Leveys will share perspectives from many arenas including:

  • Wisdom 2.0 Business forums
  • NASA’s Advanced Leadership Training and Hazardous States of Awareness Research Project
  • U.S. Army Special Forces “Ultimate Warrior/Jedi Warrior” Training Program
  • H.P. Lab’s Breakthroughs in Creativity and Innovation Forum and 25th Earth Day Event
  • Boeing Innovations Frontiers Colloquiums (Boeing, U.W. Composites Laboratory, Roll Royce, major airlines, etc.)
  • Philips Medical’s portable ultrasound division
  • Weyerhaeuser’s historic cross-functional innovation team
  • In2In Thinking Network’s Mindful Leadership Thought Leaders (NASA, JPL, Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne, Boeing, etc.)
  • The Institute of Noetic Science’s invitational research salons exploring the farther reaches of extra-ordinary human performance
  • Deep work with the Visionary Arts community:  CoSM, Art Monastery Project, Beloved,  Alchemeyez, Water Sines, etc.
  • MIT Industrial Liaison with Boeing, Dupont, New Horizons for Learning, etc.
  • Clinton Global Initiative’s forum for global leaders, researchers, and activists

Drawing insights and methods from a wide spectrum of inspiring sources, our Breakthroughs in Creativity and Innovation programs provide an introduction to a suite of profoundly practical high-tech mind-fitness practices for radically expanding your creative capacity.  This session offers a well-grounded approach, presenting profoundly practical and inspiring perspectives from the creative frontiers of neuroscience, contemplative neuroscience, social neurobiology and noetic sciences, research in collective wisdom and creative intelligence, intuitive research, and other related disciplines based on the study of extraordinary human wisdom, creativity, and performance. These will be generously referenced and made easily accessible for your consideration and personal experimentation.

You will be invited to generously experiment with the ideas and methods presented, to apply them in the laboratory your own life, work, and relationships, and to apply what you learn on your own terms to the unique circumstances of your own lives and work.
