Individual and collective creativity are the motors of innovation.
To prepare for World Creativity and Innovation Week April 15 – 21, 2016
- Look at how creative your people can be and what the conditions are to make them creative.
- See your situation and resources with new eyes, transcend away confrontational style of communication to an inclusive one. (For example, replace the phrase ‘yes, but’, with ‘yes, and’)
- Focus on the creative potential of the people involved.
- Keep in mind: Seeing creative potential doesn’t necessarily mean being able to work with it. That’s another skill set. To be covered later on.
