The Day My Creative Life Began (Again)
Thank you, Sheila Glazov for planting your creatreevity seeds.
About six months
before I decided to leave my corporate job to pursue
a creative path, the company I worked for was running
a week-long schedule of lunchtime presentations geared towards
professional growth. The workshops were open to company employees
at all levels, so when I learned about the events I scheduled
in as many as I could.
Three in particular caught my eye: How
to Create a Professional Portfolio, The
Advantages of Networking, and Maximizing
Your Organization’s Potential.
Actually, the official name of the last one was titled “What
Color Is Your Brain?”
All of the presentations were informative and worthwhile.
But the third one, Sheila Glazov’s signature program “What
Color Is Your Brain?” was most inspiring and impacting
on me. Though it was nearly five years ago, I still remember
walking into the conference room and seeing a vibrantly-dressed
full of toys and other “fun looking” things. An
unmistakable lime-green Kermit the Frog sat tall among it all.
I smiled to myself knowing we were about to have some fun.
And we did.

Sheila was an amazing speaker and completely enthusiastic
about her work. She led our group
through her fun brain
color test and talked on many topics including
creativity. She left us all with more insight into our own
thinking / behavior patterns
with new colorful language to describe our unique traits (for
instance, she kept referring to herself as "orange").
If I have to choose a point in time when my dormant creativity
was tapped on the shoulder and reawakened, I would say that
immediately after Sheila Glazov’s corporate presentation
my thinking (and life) began to shift. 'All things' suddenly
became more possible — even outside of corporate cubical
I’m extremely grateful towards Sheila
for the creativity “seeds” she
planted in me during that seminar. I never realized
how much one hour could impact a life on such a profound
level until I started looking backwards from where my life
is today and thinking "That lunchtime workshop was
a definite turning point for me."
also thankful to the company for bringing in such a talented
speaker to inspire
ironic that the wave of inspiration I caught during that
workshop eventually ushered me right out their front door! •
