A Guide To Creativity Coaching
What is creativity coaching? This video gives you the answer and introduces some motivational tools to ignite the creative light in you.
Creativity coaching is an eclectic fusion of creative arts married together with coaching. So, this could be anything between singing, writing, presenting, producing, but it's actually honing in on motivating people to pursue their creative aspirations. It can be any form of creativities, so if you are someone that is cooking or if you are on your way to work, you may want to embody a bit more creativity into your lifestyle.
So, creativity coaching, in effect, is enhancing your creative abilities and enabling you to tune in on what it is that you're set out to do by focusing clearly on your creative goal. So, in order to actually identify what your creative goal is and achieve a good creative coaching session, so to get the places started with creativity coaching, we need to assess what the client's creative DNA is. To assess what a client's DNA is, it's basically to probe into that person's personality with regards their creativity.
So, this is a series of questions made up of, “What was the first thing that made you feel creative? What was your first creative idea? What's the worst idea that you've had? What's the first thing you do in the morning and what makes you feel inspired?” So basically, your creative DNA is a series of questions which probe into who you are as person with regards to your creativity. So, what was the first thing that made you feel creative as a child? When was your worst idea and when's your best idea? So, what we do is we sort of have a detailed analysis of what it is that makes you the creative person that you are and why you do certain things. And with that information, we then move on to looking at you creative web.
So if you have a particular goal, something that you'd like to achieve, like writing a book or performing in a play or cooking a fantastic meal or doing a presentation, we will help you hone in on what this goal is. So, we'll hone in on the goal, then we'll create a creative web for you. So, what is a creative web? A creative web, hand-drawn, looks a little bit like this.

So, you draw a line across the triangle to actually identify where you are within your one to ten. And the, on the next part of this circle, you identify what would need to happen in order for it to be an absolute ten. So, this could be something like seeing your book published, seeing it so many different book shops and inspiring people and changing people's lives due to the thing that you have written.
You can hone in then on how you feel about your creative piece, your creative work and then really sort of embody what it would be like to actually see it. And then, your next box out would actually be why you want to do what it is you set out to do. So, why do you want to write this book? This hones in on your motivation.
Why is it you set out to actually do this in the first place?
