Talk on Boosting Your Creativity with Dr. Theodore Ferguson

Talk on Boosting Your Creativity with Dr. Theodore Ferguson

Location:

Locust Projects
3852 North Miami Avenue
Miami, FL 33127

Join Locust Projects for a discussion on boosting creativity with Dr. Theodore Ferguson. The talk is juxtaposed in FeCuOp's Antenna installation, an environment that is a reflection on communication overload. Dr. Ferguson will lead a conversation about expressing, deepening and protecting humans’ creativity through the philosophy of Leading From Above The Line.

Centering the talk is the following premise: Creativity is every person’s gift, but only a few come close to expressing their full creative spirit. Culture (some call it Life) is suffocating and Communication overload is blinding. Together, they smother the expression of the creative spirit. Only the truly free survive. ... How can we remain free?

Dr. Ferguson, (aka Jason's Dad) is an influential mentor to FeCuOp's practice. A noted author and leadership educator based in the West Indies, Dr. Ferguson is the Founder of Leading from Above the Line and a passionate advocate for a principled leadership ethos that springs from man’s own humanity and is reinforced and shared in a social space. He has worked in and travelled to over 70 countries worldwide studying humanity and leadership issues across cultures for more than 20 years.
