Gigi played fangirl in this episode!  Tania Katan shares her wit and wisdom about how to use creativity to challenge with playfulness our rigid organizational cultures.  She works with large and small companies, helping them find new alignment around their daily contradictions through “small c” creative work, facing everyday practical problems with imagination.  She shares the tales of #itwasneveradress (re-seeing the ladies’ room logo into a cape) and challenging the community to arm wrestle for art at the Scottsdale Museum of Art.  She speaks and challenges how we connect virtually in her keynotes and works with organizational leaders through her “Creative Trespassing” classes and new membership organization.

Guest: Tania Katan, CEO, Creative Trespassing

Tania is a transformational speaker, innovation coach, and co-creator of globally viral women’s empowerment campaign #ItWasNeverADress.

For over a decade, Tania has been successfully sneaking creativity into Fortune 500 companies, leading tech companies, arts organizations, marketing conventions and innovation summits to teach people and companies the skill of generating creative breakthroughs. Some of the organizations and major conferences impacted by her work include: CiscoLive!, Expedia, Amazon, Google, Humana, Etsy, TED, World Domination Summit, Uber, and Comedy Central Stage.

Tania believes in mavericks. She’s a fan of getting messy. She believes you should face your fears. She wants you to be okay with being weird and unique. In the book, and in our conversation today, Tania shares her career story. She discusses the weight she felt in some of her previous jobs, and shares the moments that left her stifled and feeling alone. Tania also talks about how she began to flip those feelings upside down and by leaning in to her creativity to drive more value in her work.

In episode #108 of I Want Her Job The Podcast Tania also talks about the viral women’s empowerment campaign she co-created called #ItWasNeveraDress. In the campaign, the classic female bathroom symbol was reimagined as a cape-wearing power woman. The campaign went global and was featured in Time, New York Times, and CNN.

Do you feel creative? Do you feel like it’s time to unleash your creativity?

It’s kind of a trick question because I always remind people that to be human is to be creative!

It’s in our nature.

Tania Katan wants to inspire you to unleash your creativity!  And she means everyone, from accountants to dancers, and including you!

She’s an innovation trainer and a creativity speaker.   I highly recommend checking out her best-selling book Creative Trespassing to help you sneak more imagination and creativity into your work and daily life.

Tania also busts several myths about what it means to be creative and shares lessons on how to cultivate your creativity.

Lot of great lessons in our conversation including:

  1. Getting realistic about the time, energy and focus it really takes to work for yourself.
  2. If you don’t feel creative, Tania shares how to look for creativity in your daily life.
  3. The impact of going for a walk can have on your creativity.
  4. Why she recommends productive disruptions.

Inspirational Quotes

“Creativity can help people in every field.”

“When it becomes a barrier to you and your dreams, do it tomorrow, don’t do it today.”

“I did everything that my job asked of me, but the way I chose to do it was very different.”

“Reconnect with the mission and vision of the organization before you go out on your own.  Sometimes we forget to go out on our own within a company or organization and that can be super beneficial.”
