Most people are born creative. As children, we experience imaginary play, ask outlandish questions, draw blobs and contact them dinosaurs. But over time, due to socialization and formal education, a lot of us will stifle those impulses. We discover how to be warier of judgment, more cautious, more analytical. The world seems to divide into “creatives” and “noncreatives,” and too many people consciously or unconsciously resign themselves towards the latter category. And yet we understand that creativity is important to success in almost any discipline or industry. According to a newly released IBM survey of chief executives all over the world, it’s one of the most sought-after trait in leaders today. No one can deny that creativeness means the increase and continued success of numerous companies, from start-ups like Facebook and Google to stalwarts like Procter & Gamble and General Electric. Students often visit Stanford University’s “d.school” (that has been founded by certainly one of us—David Kelley—and is also formally referred to as the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design) to formulate their creativity. Clients use IDEO, our design and innovation consultancy, for a similar reason. But in the process, we’ve found out that our obligation isn’t to train them creativity. It’s to help them rediscover their creative confidence—the natural capability to come up with new ideas and the courage to test them out. We do this by providing them ways to manage four fears that hold the majority of us back: fear of the messy unknown, nervous about being judged, concern with the first task, and anxiety about losing control. Easier said than done, you could possibly argue. But we understand it’s possible for people to overcome even their most deep-seated fears. Consider the work of Albert Bandura, a world-renowned psychologist and Stanford professor. In one series of early experiments, he helped people conquer lifelong snake phobias by guiding them by having a series of increasingly demanding interactions. They would begin by watching a snake via a two-way mirror. Once at ease with that, they’d progress to observing it through an open door, then to watching another individual touch the snake, then to touching it themselves by having a heavy leather glove, and, finally, in a few hours, to touching it with their own bare hands. Bandura calls this technique of experiencing one small success after another “guided mastery.” The those who underwent it weren’t just cured of your crippling fear they'd assumed was untreatable. They also had less anxiety plus more success in other areas of the lives, using new and potentially frightening activities like riding and presentation. They tried harder, persevered longer, together more resilience facing failure. They had gained a fresh confidence in their power to attain whatever they set out to do.
