The less rigid we are in our thinking, the more open-minded, creative and innovative we become.

Elastic Thinking

It is the capacity to be flexible, to embrace ambiguity, contradiction, and unconventional mindsets.

It is the ability to abandon our 'marriage' to our beliefs and assumptions, opening ourselves to new paradigms.

Develop Elastic Thinking

  • Develop a 'little kid's eye' to see and question situations.
  • Go and seek what challenges your beliefs.
  • Recognize diversity.
  • Generate lots of ideas and don’t be bothered that they will mostly be bad eggs.
  • Develop positivity.
  • Don't be overly analytical.
