To understand what is creativity, is it possible to develop it, has everyone have creative thinking, the Creative Group of the Academy of Public Administration of RA held an interesting meeting with Sona Poghosyan a lecturer at the Chair of Psychology Governance, Candidate of Psychological Science, and initiator of course ‘Creative administration’. With her assistance, members of the group tried to identify the types of creativity, its essence, development stages, criteria, and to identify six main factors contributing to the development of creativity: intellect, knowledge, thinking styles, personal traits, motivation, and external environment.
The lecture was followed by active discussions and exchange of views, while the expressed thoughts and observations highlighted the relevance of the topic.
