Imagination, also called the faculty of imagining, is


the creative ability to form images, ideas, and sensations
in the mind without direct input from the senses, such as
seeing or hearing.

Children more imaginative than


adults?

Imagine
You're 7 years old. All the classes stand
cancelled tomorrow.

What would you do? Where would


you go? Who would you see?

Back to PGP audi, IIM-K!

go? Who would you see?

Observations
A study was conducted several years ago by Darya Zabelina and
Michael Robinson of North Dakota State University. The psychologists
divided a large group of undergraduates into two groups.
The second group was given the same prompt minus the first sentence.
This means they didnt imagine themselves as seven years old they
remained in their adult mindset.
Next, the psychologists asked their subjects to take ten minutes to write
a response. Afterwards the subjects were given various tests of
creativity, such as inventing alternative uses for an old tire, or
completing incomplete sketches. (As well as other tasks from the
Torrance test of creativity.) Zabelina and Robinson found that,
individuals in the mindset condition involving childlike thinking
exhibited higher levels of creative originally than did those in the
control condition. This effect was especially pronounced with subjects
who identify themselves as introverts.

Close to50 percentof our waking


hours are spent daydreaming
So why not make those visions worth
your while?

What enables imagination


isconsciousnessand the
totality of our experience.

The imagination, in other words, is


acombinational phenomenon of
experience and consciousness

Kind of like LEGOs!


The more of these building
blocks we have, and the more
diverse their shapes and
colors, the more interesting
our castles will become.

Imagination is the key to unlocking the

biggest secrets of life. And I have talked about the


power and scope of imagination.

But how do people sustain it?


How does an organization make sure that it gets the
best of its employees imaginative powers?
Lets find out.

Visionaries: Imagining the future

The man who will use his skill and constructive imagination to see how much he can
give for a dollar, instead of how little he can give for a dollar, is bound to succeed.

Visionaries: Imagining the future

Imagination is more important than knowledge.


Knowledge is limited; Imagination encircles the world.

Visionaries: Imagining the future

Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.

and when all these


practices are in place

Imagining transformative workplaces

When imagination becomes a Way of


life

And else, even the giants fail

In the end

We humans are hardwired to imagined and innovate

Its our imagination which created this amazing world around us

In this competitive world, success depends on how better you


imagine

The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be
able to do it.
