• “Just looking at the blue color for a few minutes will increase your creativity”

Sometimes it’s the trees. Or the beach. Or just gazing out the window at a garden.
These actions seem to help humans be more creative while reducing stress, says psychology professor and author Thalma Lobel.
“Just looking at the blue color for a few minutes – even less—will increase your creativity,” says Ms. Lobel. “It is true even in green.”
In this CVBT interview, she offers the research support for that and also tells about the experiment dealing with thinking outside the box, when that is meant literally.
Ms. Lobel is the author of the new book, “Whatever Works: The Small Cues That Make a Surprising Difference in Our Success at Work—and How to Create a Happier Office,” (BenBella Books; July 2020).
She says it takes more than salary and title for optimal teamwork. What is missing too often, she says, are the hidden factors that have profound effects on how well humans do their jobs and how happy they are at work.
Thalma Lobel details many of these hidden factors that can be quickly addressed by managers in this exclusive CVBT Audio Interview Podcast.
