David B Goldstein

Here we help you to find your creative style and explore: what does it take to be Courageously Creative?  Guns, money, lawyers, confidence and willingness to take some risks to try something new are a good starting point.

This is designed to be a forum to share ideas so please make comments and share your thoughts!

David believes the ability to be creative is within all of us.  By  learning more about yourself, you can become more creative in your own way by using your natural talents.  If we want, we can all create  some kind of art, but we can also use our creativity  to help solve life’s everyday problems and to help us be more competitive and productive.

Competitiveness and productivity are what increases our standard of living, both personally and as a society so creativity has a practical side.

A management consultant, artist, researcher, speaker, writer and the originator of the “creative-type” concept, David speaks about how everyone can be creative in their own way using their natural strengths. He is the author of the recent book: Creative You: Using Your Personality Type To Thrive, published by Simon & Schuster in 2013.

To remain competitive, every person and organization needs to act more creatively. David guides clients to become more engaged and productive by finding their unique creative style, and to become better at generating, selecting, and executing ideas. Through his speaking he advises organizations in building collaborative teams within environments that promote innovation.
