By emphasizing the use of leadership to enable and empower others to take creative risks, this podcast addresses everything from fear of change to the importance of creativity in every environment.

Parents

Have you been searching for answers or specific techniques to encourage a creative mindset in your child or class? Just add this podcast to your top-five list like me. I was home-schooled as a kid when home-schooling wasn’t that popular… As I look back, I wish that my mom had Dr. Barnett and Dr. Worwood to listen to. Boxes are great, but Dr. Barnett and Dr. Worwood go beyond the Childcraft Encyclopedia creativity volume that I depended upon. They really help you to understand Creativity as a discipline and as a practice. Enjoy the discussions for yourself as well. We can all benefit from having a creative mindset!
