Lynne was interviewed by award-winning writer Julie Jacobs for an article on creativity "Catalysts for Creativity," which has just been published in the Spring 2014 edition of Creative Living. Here's a short excerpt:
Just what is creativity?
"My definition is the ability to produce different and valuable results," says Lynne Levesque, author of Breakthrough Creativity: Achieving Top Performance Using the Eight Creative Talents (Nicholas Brealey, 2001). "I think when you look at the lives of the people who in history are considered to be great creatives, such as Thomas Jefferson, Claude Monet, Mozart, etc., they not only come up with the idea, they also execute and create some work out of that idea." Creativity and innovation expert Michael J. Gelb, who wrote How to Think Like Leonardo Da Vinci: Seven Steps to Genius Every Day (Delacorte Press, 1998), adds, "The key is it's something new. It's actually a solution to something and it proves useful or valuable. That's how we know it's creative as opposed to just different."
