Managers are crushing their employees’ ideas (and spirits). When you stamp on a person’s ideas enough times they stop contributing.
Beware of blindly following all industry best practices. They can lead you down a path of conformity and compliance. Look outside your industry for Best Feasible Practices.
Being able to generate ideas on demand is a process. Apply the 3Cs of creativity to increase the quality and volume of your ideas: Consume, Connect, Create.
There are 2 types of creatives: Creative Introverts and Creative Extroverts. Generate more ideas by empowering both types by “working alone, together.”
Every organization has an immense pool of untapped creative talent in its employees. Harness the creative genius of teams to solve complex problems.
If you’re looking to unleash your ideas, schedule a creative retreat asap. You don’t discover your best ideas behind your desk or pecking away at your keyboard. To shock the creative system into overdrive schedule a “creative retreat.” This is a short, deliberate getaway to work on a problem and discover new ideas.
Great ideas aren’t found in a boardroom. If you’re looking for a breakthrough idea get into nature. Get your team away from their desks and routines, and go find a place that feeds their creativity.
Creativity is a double-edged sword, because every good idea generates a mountain of work. Apply rails to your projects with clear outcomes so you don’t innovate needlessly.
Your desk is a crutch. Great ideas happen when you live in the real world. Leave your desk. Your creativity needs a spark to unlock its genius.
