Today I’m talking with Scott Stroud about how we can use our imagination to unlock our creativity, find meaning and basically feel like we can take on the world.

Scott works with various types of individuals and teams from artists to software developers, managers to medical professionals, and every day normal people navigate their own language and metaphors to get clear about what they want exactly and how to get it. He’s also volunteered with the long-term unemployed at a local meal center to help them find purpose using the same techniques. The venture was a success and culminated in some of the attendees leading their own groups at the center.
