The most powerful catalyst for inspiring creative breakthroughs, and for translating those breakthroughs into sustainable innovations, is to guide people to connect with one another first, before trying to solve a problem. When people connect, when they are simpatico, on the same wavelength, attuned, in rapport, they are much better at generating, and implementing, new ideas.
When people really listen, when they are fully present with one another, It is, as pioneering psychotherapist Carl Rogers (1902-1987) describes, astonishing how elements which seem insoluble become soluble…” Rogers adds that when genuine connection happens, “confusions which seem irremediable turn into relatively clear flowing streams…”
This isn’t just true in therapy. Connection facilitates creativity in all domains. When people truly listen to one another something reliably magical happens: seemingly irremediable confusions do become clear flowing streams. This is true in a marriage, a friendship or in a professional collaboration.
