Most folks are born creative. As children, we enjoy imaginary play, ask outlandish questions, draw blobs and refer to them as dinosaurs. But after a while, due to socialization and formal education, most of us begin to stifle those impulses. We learn how to be warier of judgment, more cautious, more analytical. The world generally seems to divide into “creatives” and “noncreatives,” and so many people consciously or unconsciously resign themselves towards the latter category. And yet we all know that creativity is important to success in different discipline or industry. According to a recently available IBM survey of chief executives around the globe, it’s the most sought-after trait in leaders today. No one can deny that creativeness has allowed the rise and continued success of countless companies, from start-ups like Facebook and Google to stalwarts like Procter & Gamble and General Electric. Students often come to Stanford University’s “d.school” (that was founded by certainly one of us—David Kelley—and is formally called the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design) to develop their creativity. Clients work with IDEO, our design and innovation consultancy, for the same reason. But along the way, we’ve learned that our job isn’t to show them creativity. It’s to assist them to rediscover their creative confidence—the natural power to come up with new ideas as well as the courage to test them out. We do this by offering them ways of get past four fears that hold many of us back: concern with the messy unknown, fear of being judged, nervous about the initial step, and nervous about losing control. Easier said than actually doing it, you might argue. But we realize it’s practical for visitors to overcome even their most deep-seated fears. Consider the work of Albert Bandura, a world-renowned psychologist and Stanford professor. In one number of early experiments, he helped people conquer lifelong snake phobias by guiding them through a group of increasingly demanding interactions. They would start by watching a snake by having a two-way mirror. Once more comfortable with that, they’d progress to observing it with an open door, then to watching somebody else touch the snake, then to touching it themselves through a heavy leather glove, and, finally, in a few hours, to touching it using their own bare hands. Bandura calls this process of experiencing one small success after another “guided mastery.” The people who underwent it weren’t just cured of your crippling fear that they had assumed was untreatable. They also had less anxiety plus more success in other areas of the lives, using new and potentially frightening activities like horseback riding and public speaking. They tried harder, persevered longer, coupled with more resilience facing failure. They had gained a brand new confidence within their capability to attain what they set out to do.
