Outstanding resource for accessing creativity personally and in the workplace. Chic identifies common "Killer Phrazes" which thwart our actions and gives excellent, fun suggestions for stamping them out. This book is extremely "user friendly". Easy to read, funny - with exercises along the way to drive home the points. He gives practical ways to use mind mapping, metaphors,and analogies to help you get your thinking unstuck and to uncover new solutions. As a creative thinking trainer, I have shared Chic's ideas and strategies to hundreds of individuals across the U.S. The feedback I get is extremely positive. As a matter of fact, his ideas helped me structure my course in a much more innovative, impactful way. Use Chic's ideas and watch the people in your environment become more creative, more open to new ideas, more productive and have one whole heck of a lot of fun.
