The content of the article specifies the essence of various notions: creativity, competence, creative skills, and professional skills. Creativity appears in four important meanings: as a product, as a process, as availability and general human poten¬tial, as a capacity and a creative ability, and as a complex dimension of personality. Competence is often used as a contex¬tualization of acquisitions (knowledge, skills, and abilities), so professional competence is the use of acquisitions in a particular context. Context is a component of professional competence.
Competences are not limited to cognitive elements (involving the use of theory, concepts or knowledge), they also include functional aspects that involve technical skills, as well as interpersonal attributes (social skills, organizational skills and ethical values). From this perspective, we can say that creativity is a competence, even a meta-competence. You cannot educate a creative person without developing certain skills, which will later reach a certain level of performance, behavioral flexibility, efficiency, adaptability. In this sense, it is stated that creativity is learned, practiced, and deve¬lo¬ped.
Creative skills involve cognitive and work style characteristics as well as personality traits that allow an individual to use his skills in one area in a more different way than others do. A creative work style is characterized by: total dedi¬ca-tion, the desire to do things well, the ability to focus for long periods of time, the ability to abandon unproductive ide¬as and temporarily put aside more difficult problems, tenacity in the face of difficulties, the desire to work perse¬ve¬rin¬gly.
