The Katharine J Densford International Center for Nursing Leadership Creative Dialogue Clinics supports and inspires creativity through the application of creative strategies that support innovation leadership in education, practice, research, and project development. The clinic provides a time, place, and set of liberating structures and strategies for convening people to have creative conversations and receive consultation about innovative ideas, projects, challenging situations or issues.
“Creativity is the connecting and rearranging of knowledge –
in the minds of people who allow themselves to think flexibly,
to generate new, often surprising ideas that others judge to be useful.”
(Paul E. Plsek, 1997)
The Creative Dialogue Clinics are facilitated by Dr. Daniel J Pesut, Professor of Nursing and Director of the Center for Nursing Leadership. Creative Dialogue Clinics will use Liberating Structures to facilitate group interaction, dialogue and discovery that supports innovative work. Liberating Structures (LS) are easy-to-learn microstructures that enhance relational coordination. They quickly foster lively participation in groups of any size and can replace more controlling or constraining approaches.
