Dr Gloria is a creativity expert. As an expressive arts and creativity psychologist, Dr. Gloria focuses on expanding the imagination through creative arts by bringing new perspectives and ideas at the intersection of business, digital transformation and human systems.
Her executive corporate background has been grounded in emerging technology and creativity. Just as she did as a child, Dr. Gloria found herself often wondering how things could be different and imagined new concepts and products throughout her career.
As a leader, she approached thinking creatively and hosted fun, imaginative offsites that helped her team move forward. One particularly memorable year, Dr. Gloria chose the concept of being ‘Famous’ to their customers for her new team. The Famous poem described how important the seemingly small things are, ”like a button is famous to the shirt”, in our lives and how they can make a big difference.
When Dr.Gloria introduced the poem, she had no game plan but knew instinctively that honoring and seeing people’s creative spirit would get them focused on the right actions to take. She did not realize she was 'crowdsourcing’ new ideas or creating a new ‘social environment’ building on an ‘emotional contagion’ of the team. The outcome was a team who wowed their customers with their increased personal authority and empowerment to use their imagination to successfully improve overall performance.
After over 20 years of executive leadership in Banking, Healthcare and Technology, Dr. Gloria pursued her doctorate to understand the science behind her approach to teams and creativity. Now in practice with The Mousai Group for over 6 years, Dr. Gloria feels that as we move from the Information Age, into the Imagination Age, techniques are needed to transform thinking towards a new multi-dimensional reality fueled by imagination, a function unique to the human mind. The Imagination Age has the potential to infuse our sense of self and connection through expanded thinking, which is important for the future of work.
Dr. Gloria’s work inspires curiosity and emotion that create meaning and connectedness for you and your teams. There is no one size fits all and even basic courses are adventures of the mind. Are you ready for your breakthrough? Perhaps you too can be ‘Famous’!
