Be prepared to be wrong – innovation depends on it


“If you are not prepared to be wrong, you will never come up with anything original” – Sir Ken Robinson

This video is from a 2006 TED (Technology, Education, Design) conference in which Sir Ken Robinson talks about the destructive nature our current education system has on creativity.  If you are curious why some new employees coming out of college might not have the capacity to creatively solve problems, is it because they are so worried to be wrong that that have lost the ability to think creatively?  How can you make it safe for them again?

It is 20 minutes and well worth your time.
