Chris Griffiths, the CEO of ThinkBuzan, has written a new book called GRASP the Solution: How to Find the Best Answers to Everyday Challenges that provides a practical framework for increasing your creative output and tackling the challenges you face. It will be officially published on October 19th, but ThinkBuzan has agreed to provide Mind Mapping Insiders with an exclusive preview of the preface and first chapter of this valuable new book.
In this excerpt, you’ll learn why Griffiths believes we’re at a global inflection point. We all have access to an incredible amount of information today, thanks to the web. But access to knowledge isn’t a solution in itself. We need to be able to think about our challenges imaginatively to solve problems, deliver new value to our businesses and cultivate a more successful future.
“In this new creative era, the power is going to inevitably shift to people who can look at things differently, who can think imaginatively and objectively to deliver new values and ideals. The leaders of the next decade will be those who can deliberately and systematically make fresh connections and disoveries, generate original ideas, solve problems creatively not just logically, and break the rules to overcome sameness. They will be whole brain thinkers, harnessing both their left (analytical) and right (creative) cortical skills to make optimal decisions,” Griffiths explains.
GRASP the Solution discusses how mind mapping fits into the creative process, but this book is about a much broader and vital subject: How to equip yourself with strategies and tools to cultivate your thinking and add more value to your organization.
