An Interview with Sir Ken Robinson [Video]

Several weeks ago, I had the privilege of hosting the Chick-fil-A Leadercast Backstage program. I interviewed several notable authors as they came off the stage, including John Maxwell, Seth Godin, Dan Cathy, Suzy Welch, Frans Johansson, and several others. I thought I would share these with you over the next several weeks.

Sir Ken Robinson, Ph.D. is an internationally-recognized leader in the development of creativity and innovation. I first encountered him when I heard his presentation at the 2006 TED Conference. He is also the author of the New York Times bestseller, The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything.

As I interviewed him, we talked about several topics, including:

  • The nature of creativity
  • The difference between imagination and creativity
  • Whether or not it is possible to become more creative
  • The three big myths about creativity
  • The relationship between creativity and leadership
  • How leaders can generate more creativity with their teams
  • The future of creativity—and the necessity for it.
  • Whether we have cause to be optimistic about the future
  • Why our model of educational model is broken and what we must do to fix it
