Stop believing creativity is merely trying to “think outside the box”. The Personal Creativity Assessment (PCA), from industry expert, Lynne Levesque, helps you discover deep creative talents and provides the framework for applying them to your work.

Presented in a non-threatening format, the PCA is an excellent activity to conduct in a workshop or group setting where creativity is lacking. The Leader's Guide provides a complete explanation of the rationale behind the PCA, as well as detailed instructions for conducting the 62-item assessment.
