Creativity comes in many forms. It’s the ability to solve problems, as well as the understanding and use of communication tools to convey information. Our guest has demonstrated both of those elements of creativity in his naval service. LT. Rylan Tuohy, USN, is a 2016 Applied Physics graduate of the Naval Academy, and he’s earned a Master’s Degree in Project Management from the University of Maryland. He has served as an officer in the Navy’s Civil Engineering Corps and he has more than 15 million views of his work on YouTube.
We talk about how Rylan used creativity in his role in the SeaBees (Navy Construction Battalion), and beyond. We discuss are you “born with” a creativity function, or can you develop it? How does your ability to communicate and motivate as a leader play in the productions that you’ve created? Movies are a “team sport”. How did your time in the Navy help you build those skills? You’ve taken some risks with your career path and with some of the choices that you made. Why and how did you take those risks?
