Zooangzi and the link to Creativity

Zooangzi – the founder of Creativity
The name Zooangzi, refers to Zhuang Zi in phonetic writing, a taoist philosopher and his book of wisdom written approximately 360-290 BCE. The book transfers its wisdom through storytelling full of prose, stories and parables. It is one of the first books of wisdom where creativity as a concept is addressed. In what may be the earliest Chinese dragon ballad this text is extracted:
“…the dragon moves freely from an underground water home to an irrigated field. Then, driven by a drought, it flies to heaven to conquer a new empire. The dragon is now believed immortal and omnipresent with abilities to change form or become invisible”.
The book reveals a holistic way of thinking where complexity is respected by ‘seeing’ the overall structure, seeing the way of least resistance and then using the least effort for the maximum returns.

History shows over and over again that applied creativity and creative leadership seemingly effortlessly and in a holistic way brings maximum returns. At Meta-Learning Solutions we are seeing this result in those organisations in which we have supported external change management programmes through guest facilitation and coaching

Leaders and change agents skilled to develop partnerships identify opportunities and create entrepreneurial energy with appropriate supporting structures will be successful in changing their institutions. Learners, learning to learn can find support in each other’s experience. Our individual and collective ability to learn is huge and by using new improved, creative learning techniques we can facilitate change in structure, culture and our client’s overall learning experience.
