This is creativity day 3. Jay reminds us of the four creative thinking skills which are fluency, flexibility, originality, and elaboration. Today he focuses on flexibility.

Did you know that flexible thinkers have an increased ability to solve problems and challenges? They promote positive collaboration. Flexible thinkers are very skilled at what’s called set shifting or letting go of one idea to consider another or abandoning an old strategy to adopt a better approach.
