7 daily micro-lessons with a creative challenge

Help you quickly learn new skills and jumpstart creative thinking

There has never been a more important time to use creativity in our day-to-day life. 


In a world where technology, robotics and artificial intelligence are increasingly pervasive, creativity is the human advantage.


Recognized as a key leadership and employability skill, creativity is no longer nice to have; it’s an essential skill for the future of work and an enabler to well-being.


Why? 

Because creative people are curious, imaginative, willing to try new things, and have the ability to look at things in new ways. Playful and courageous, they can roll with the punches and adapt more easily to changing circumstances.


Creativity inspires us to get unstuck, learn how to build new habits and get things done. 

Take the 7-Day Creativity Challenge - our next challenge starts April 15, 2021

Explore what it means to be creative and have fun learning new skills

Here's how it works

Sign up to receive 7 daily lessons delivered straight to your inbox. 

Each email, which will take no more than one minute to read, contains a micro-lesson and a creative challenge for the day. 

Each daily challenge is designed to be completed as you go about your day. Use it as a way to jumpstart your creative thinking, an opportunity to make shifts in the status quo, and to engage with the world around you creatively.

You then have 24-hours to:

  • Complete the challenge 
  • Reflect on what happened
  • And, join our moderated discussion forum to share ideas and insights about your experience. 


In the discussion forum, you'll learn from other 7-Day Creativity Challengers and gain access to the course facilitator to ask questions and deepen your learning.


The skills included in the 7-Day Creativity Challenge include:

  • Being Curious
  • Being Open
  • Being Original


At the end of the week, you can continue to use the skills in your daily life. 


Here are the highlights of the lessons included in the 7-Day Creativity Challenge.
