About the speaker
How to reconnect with the genius in you?
“There is a genius in all of us,” believed Albert Einstein. Do you agree? Are you a genius? Dr Detlef Reis (aka Dr D) believes that Albert Einstein is right. We’re all geniuses, or at least we were once upon when we were very young. But unfortunately, most of us got disconnected from their inner genius in the education and socialization process. As the ingenious architect Richard Buckminster Fuller put it: “Everyone is born a genius, but the process of living de-geniuses them.” So, what can you do to rediscover your creative self and your natural creativity? What can you do to find reconnect to your inner genius? Simply join this talk and learn about Genius Journey®, a new creative leadership development method. Genius Journey sends would-be creative leaders on a journey to find your inner genius. At each of the ten destination stop of the journey, you find out what limiting mindsets that hold you back, and what empowering mindsets top creative leaders employ instead to produce outstanding ideas and results. Ready to learn on how to start your journey?
