When Poetry Collides with Business—Why Businesses Need Creativity

Creativity is powerful; working with imagination, metaphor, and nature enables us to transcend our self-imposed and fear-generated limits.

Many of us leave behind this bold, vibrant, vital force when we leave childhood. I’m here to tell you that this matters. Why? Because our creativity can illuminate our individual paths to our authentic self. I believe that creativity is essential to our future and resolving many of our issues in business. It weaves through and benefits many essential skills and business activities and is a key leadership resource. What often blocks us, leaving our creativity shut down, is that we have forgotten the need to “view the intuitive mind as a sacred gift and the rational mind as a faithful servant”.


Have You Ever Been Eaten by a Poem? How Poetry Benefits Strategic Thinking and Relieves Overwhelm.

The often “unsung” power of poetry opens up new ways in which we use language. It changes how we think and requires the art of deep listening. As an art form, it is a vital resource to opening up creativity, reflection, and emotional engagement. Research has revealed that reading poetry can both enhance strategic thinking and ease overwhelm. In this session, Louise will help participants explore the power of poetry to re-engage with life, well-being, and each other and reveal how the “business of poetry” benefits companies.
