“If You Breathe You Are Creative” - DLIC Speaker, Jim Collins Will Inspire You To Find Your Innovative Self




Creativity is the human state infinitely renewable, ever present. The challenge is not how to become creative. The question is how to get rid of the stuff that’s in the way of our creativity. If you breathe, you are creative,” says Jim Collins, faculty member of the Stanford Graduate School of Business. When he takes the stage at the Arthur Lok Jack Graduate School of Business Distinguished Leadership and Innovation Conference at the Hyatt Regency, Trinidad on Friday 5 May, 2017, this recipient of the Distinguished Teaching Award (1992) will inspire his listeners to achieve their creative leadership potential. If you’re a leader who wants to encourage innovation in your staff and in yourself; if you want to use creative concepts to help come up with solutions within your company and in the region as a whole; if you want to explore how original thinking will help your company weather hard times, you need to be a part of this conversation with Jim Collins.


Change the Way We Think

During a press conference held to launch DLIC 2017, Professor Miguel Carrillo, Executive Director and Professor of Strategy, Arthur Lok Jack Graduate School of Business noted, “We need to change the way we think to be able to change the way we do things.” Who better to inject insight into this important discussion than Mr. Collins who has spent over 25 years in the study of leadership and what makes great companies successful?




Creativity is Natural, Discipline is Not

Mr. Collins will present a topic of deep interest to him: Creativity is Natural, Discipline is Not. His input will no doubt be bolstered by the knowledge he incorporated into the six books he has authored and co-authored. In these, he extensively examined key issues like how successful companies and leaders make the leap to superior results and remain legendary, while often thriving amidst chaos. He has also highlighted the leadership behaviours which will help companies survive as well as the reasons why once great companies can lose their momentum and self-destruct.
