Enhancing creativity - your abilities to have ideas and bring them to be - is one of the most critical challenges of our time.  Solving the big problems of our world requires that we improve our skills in creating a better future.  Building on research that establishes creativity as a skill that can be developed, this book answers the foundational question, How do you enhance your creativity?

The book is authored by instructors of the course "Creativity, Innovation, and Vision" at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.  It presents a strategic model, compelling insights, and thoughtful prompts developed over several years of teaching.  Part instruction manual and part workbook, the book leads you through a tested process to improve your creativity. 

Creativity enhancement applies to any discipline, and anyone can become more creative.  Since we are all working on a big creativity project - designing our own lives! - the joy of enhancing your creativity also takes on personal significance.  Building Your Creativity provides the tools to change the way you think and to bring ideas to life.
