Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

from "Exploring Creativity"...
Creativity is the spark of life, the vitality that stirs desires to improve upon and change the status quo-meaningfully, responsibly, wisely, and with impact.

from "Discovering Your Creative Voice"...
Knowing about different voices helps us to alleviate the immediate knee-jerk blaming that occurs when we don't get what we want. It shifts the focus away from "things happen to me" toward the more progressive "I make things happen,"...

from "Jung's Theory of Psychological Type"...
The patterns of the preferences, or voices, are really "where it's at," creatively and holistically speaking. Why? Because we all perceive something and we all make decisions about what we perceive.

from "Idea-Generating Setup"...
The bottom line to a successful idea-generating process is to honor the voices in the room and to use different thinking styles. That's right, intermix the different temperament patterns as well as divergent perceiving and convergent judging, focuses, and activities.

This is the fifth in the Understanding Yourself and Others® Series, and the most ambitious project of the set. Here we have a whole creativity workshop in one book. Marci has combined her extensive knowledge and experience in the field of creativity, and her training in temperament and psychological type to produce a great trainers' and participants' manual. While it would greatly benefit a creativity facilitator to experience Marci's course, this book is extensive enough for someone with a background in creativity and personality type to do a very creditable job with a group. The book even includes many trainer tips of what to expect from the workshop participants.
As a temperament and personality type facilitator myself, I was excited by the wealth of material presented and the logical unfolding of the topic. This isn't always true of this kind of book. Sometimes trainers' books have all kinds of materials missing that the author only gives at the training program. Other books are written for the general public and leave out too much background material for any meaningful self-help to occur or for a facilitator to cover the topic in depth in a workshop.
The book begins by an overall outline of creativity. One of the key stereotypes of creativity is that it has to be something unique and "way out there." Marci takes great pains to emphasise that creativity is the ability to initiate change. There are a number of exercises and leaders' tips as to how a group is likely to respond and how to deal with possible problems.
Then the book moves on to temperament in a section called "Discovering Your Creative Voice.

This book is very helpful to people that want to understand creativity and how diferent people handle it. It is the first book that relates experiences with Creativity, Personality Type and Temperaments. Segal's book has many exercises and ways to show us how to work with creativity and use our behaviors. It is easy to understand our styles using the Jung archetypes, and what kind of techniques is easier to work.

This book is more about how to be a creative leader, plain and simple. Segal has taken the effort to show how creativity can be supported in individuals and teams and takes great pains to demonstrate throughout how to work with people to help them get new ideas and make new decisions. She adds dimensionality to the topic never been seen before. The workbook style makes it easy to work with and use. Segal has provided a book that serves as coach for growth and learning. Amazing. My copy is highlighted and I use it constantly as a reference for working with my teams.
