Creativity and Leadership

Creativity and leadership, two qualities that are needed in education. Among the requirements that large companies are asking the candidates to fill the most important positions are no longer a broad curriculum, highly qualified and studies at leading universities. What they are asking for is creativity, leadership, vision. Unfortunately these materials are not taught in universities. The absence of these materials contributes greatly to increasing unemployment of university graduates. The time we live is highly dynamic, everything moves, everything changes overnight, but the education students receive is paralyzing. We are “educated” with information that in five years will be obsolete. What sense does it review information that will have no utility? It gives undue weight to the data, when the importance of the creation of data. Information is privileged and neglects the creation of the data.

Information by itself does not contribute to training of men and women who are able to solve the problems they present in the not too distant future. Something that should be emphasized is the observation, the approach to the problems with the student and of course the same solution. This involves creativity, since it is the resource for solving problems in an original way. No student has the same problems as others, therefore, require different solutions. That’s where personal creativity. Most students at all levels according to study plans and programs established by a few scholars who determine what students should study. No matter the differences that exist between students, plans and programs are designed as if they were all the same.
