This book explores the intersections of creativity, play and the workplace, making the most of the opportunities that you have. It describes processes and tools to bring the best of people’s imagination out in the world, and it makes a strong case for inclusion and diversity as a core component of innovation. The main point is about finding the small cracks in the system where you can plant the seed of innovation, and then be patient enough to keep finding more cracks and planting some more. Over time, even a small seed can grow in concrete.
My hope is that, in reading this book, you will discover the value that play and humour can bring to the work space, and how neurodiversity can be a real asset in any innovation team. In this book, I hope to instill in you the same sort of passion and excitement that I have for creativity in all its forms (theory, my own practice, facilitation in others). Ultimately, I want you to see this book as a tool to help you grow in creative confidence first and activate it in teams and groups (including friends and family).
