Because business and cultural leaders view creativity as the most important leadership trait for future success.
Re-imagining boundaries is the process that empowers organizations and individuals alike to continuously rethink and reinvent what they do.
It is the link between systematic creativity and high-impact strategic thinking, and the critical basis of staying relevant.
What if you could reignite your childhood creativity in a systematic way, to overstep self-imposed limitations and to discover what you are really capable of achieving?
Continuous innovation is both necessary and exhilarating, and we all possess the inner capacity for it. Our capacity has simply been buried and lays dormant within us. As children, our imagination knew no boundaries. We would grab a slingshot and be instantly transformed into a warrior, a spy, a huntress, or protector of treasure. But as we grew older, our intellectual comfort zone shifted from that of continuous exploration and inquisitiveness to that of conformity with accepted norms of perception. All is not lost, however. We just need the right framework to re-engage our youthful creativity and re-imagine boundaries: THE SLINGSHOT FRAMEWORK.
Find out why you need to infatuate your target audience and to provide them continuous lifestyle enrichment; how to become market-driving and to shape your offering for broadest relevance; and how to channel your reclaimed creativity into smart strategy. Launch yourself to new business and personal heights and have fun doing it.
Energizing children illustrations throughout the text, accompanying original music and bits of advice from some of the world’s most well-known creative leaders round out your immersive SLINGSHOT initiation.

Here’s a mental exercise in unconventional thinking. Let your mind wander to the most absurd frontiers of your future strategic options. Then gradually reel them back until they are just within the realm of possible. Finally, think about how to actually accomplish them.
As a comic example of re-imagining boundaries, seizing the absurd, and seeing opportunity where others see limitations, consider the story of a famous Hungarian writer who was living in Paris in the early 1900’s in typical artistic poverty. One day he saw a petition from a wealthy French businessman looking to learn Cantonese. Without speaking a word of Cantonese but able to convincingly fake it, he got the job. In the process, he bravely overstepped his own glaring limitation, which was his inability to speak the very language his client desired to learn.
During two years of intensive tutoring that followed, a complete, made-up language was fabricated by the writer and perfected between the two of them, thereby creating the least spoken tongue in linguistic history. After the second year, confident of having mastered the language, the Frenchman finally left for an extended business trip to China. His arrival and initial conversations there must have been quite interesting.
