How Creativity can Help Remote Teams Collaborate with Denise Jacobs

Rosenfeld Review Podcast

We’re bringing Creativity Evangelist Denise Jacobs to our virtual workshop lineup this year! Here, she chats with Lou about how the current era of “doom-scrolling” means it’s more important than ever to unlock our creative minds and make meaningful connections. One challenge of working remotely is the loss of a sense of personal connection. Having tools that allow you to collaborate in a virtual environment and overcome isolation is a way to expand the collective creativity of the whole team. Her workshop (https://rosenfeldmedia.com/public-ux-workshops/master-creative-collaboration-and-communication/) is an opportunity to expand your knowledge base, skill set, and be inspired by creativity and collaboration using new and different tools to figure out how to add extra life to the work-from-home environment. Denise’s three day workshop this February (10 hours over 3 segments: February 2-4, 2021) will focus on leveraging collective brilliance, becoming confident in sharing your ideas, and learning to be an excellent listener. Next comes “the fun part” — how to use improvisation to make collaboration feel like a game, and not like work.Denise Recommends:° Restore Yourself by Edy Greenblatt https://www.amazon.com/Restore-Yourself-Antidote-Professional-Exhaustion/dp/0981929915° Around the Writer’s Block by Rosanne Bane https://www.amazon.com/Around-Writers-Block-Science-Resistance-ebook/dp/B0085DP1LMAbout DeniseDenise Jacobs is a Speaker + Author + Creativity Evangelist who speaks at conferences and consults with companies worldwide.

3 | Denise Jacobs Talks "Criticism"

Words With Friends, Hosted by Phil M. Jones

In today’s show of Words with Friends, Phil interviews author, speaker, and creativity evangelist Denise Jacobs. Our main theme is the word, “criticism”. Most people are not receptive to criticism. When criticized, most of us tend to become defensive and look for faults in other people instead of looking inwards. This is because pointing a finger is way easier than indulging in painful introspection. When others criticize us or we are brave enough to do some self-criticism, often we question our deep-set beliefs that we had for many years. But, is criticism really necessary for self-improvement? Another school of thought suggests that criticism gets in the way of creativity and prevents us from performing at a peak level. Those who have an extreme fear of criticism are even paralyzed into total inaction. In the next segment of the show, we discuss the Black Lives Matter movement, and how it is forcing us to question and rethink our deeply ingrained beliefs and our actions. Racial inequality has existed in our society for ages. It is surprising how often inequality tends to rear its ugly head – and often in subtle ways. While George Floyd’s tragic death has sparked a much-needed debate, as a society, are we really ready for an honest, no-holds barred conversation? Denise shares her own experiences to reveal how she has experienced racism at different junctures in her life. We hope you enjoy this show! What You Will Learn In This Show Is criticism really necessary for self-improvement? Does criticism hinder growth and creativity? Racial inequality in the workplace Are we really ready to have an honest, no-holds barred conversation on racial inequality? And much, much more…. Resources Banish the Inner Critic

A Coat is Never Just a Coat w/ Denise Jacobs and Liza Tripp

Move the World with Words

Those that can't cook pastries, translate. That's not how the saying goes, but at least in Liza Tripp's case, that was exactly what happened. She left after chocolate, but before wedding cakes.  It wasn't until graduate school that she found Denise Jacobs, and began a partnership that would take them both places they never dreamed. The world of fashion translation.  They were both guests on the Move the World with Words podcast recently and talked all about: their journeys into fashion translation, the not so glamorous parts of translating museum exhibits, and why a coat is never just a coat.  You can find more about the passionate translators who Move the World with Words by subscribing to our podcast on Apple Podcasts, on Spotify, or here.
