How Creativity may

This week #PKMChat invites Stephanie Barns @MPuzzlePiece to talk about Creativity and Resilience. She held a workshop on this topic in Berlin last week: Here are her definitions of the two key concepts Tweetable definitions of creativity and resilience: Creativity: is the reorganization of experience into new configurations; a function of knowledge, imagination, and evaluation. Resilience: is the ability to bounce back. Resilient people are optimistic, focused, organized, proactive, and flexible. Creativity itself, already a #PKMChat topic, is unarguably a Personal Knowledge process. What about resilience? Are we still in #PKMChat domain? First for me (Bruno) PKM is to be taken in the widest scope : any process related to personal knowledge, plus the relation with nearby domains like Knowledge Management, Learning, Working with others. Time are gone when we considered that only logical, fully explicit knowledge should be considered. Now we encompass in intelligence how we react to events, how we engage in relations with others. As such being more resilient is definitely an advantage for the peak personal knowledge performer. Doing experiments is part of informal learning. Doing experiments may lead to failures. The ability to bounce back after failing is part of resilience. Being resilient makes failing forward much easier. Like working out loud included human behaviors outside of strich knowledge sharing, resilience can be an important asset of a good personal knowledge capability. So let’s explore resilience and more specifically how practicing creativity may affect our resilience. PKMChat being about Personal Knowledge Management encompass Knowledge lifecycle in general. Our first chat was about learning, acquiring Knowledge. Our second is about sharing it. Week after weeks we will switch from one end of the lifecycle to another while exploring all the channels that could be used: social, formal, writing, videos. Feel free to suggest topics by tweeting to @pkmchat.
