When our jobs challenge us to be creative on demand, we must develop novel, useful ideas that will keep our organizations competitive. For anyone who struggles with creativity, or who makes excuses for delaying the work of innovation, David Burkus will help you overcome your obstacles to finding new ideas with his presentation, The Myths of Creativity.

Based on the latest research into how creative individuals and firms succeed, David will highlight the mistaken ideas that hold us back and show how anyone can embrace a practical, grounded approach to finding the best new ideas. He’ll answer questions such as, “What causes us to be creative in one moment and void in the next?” and he’ll debunk several common myths about creativity.
