Annette Moser-Wellman in his book- The Five faces of Genius- asserted that the most valuable resource you bring to work place or an organization is your creativity. More than your skill or role; in an organization, creativity is more important. You might need to change your ways of thinking to improve on your creativity.
John Maxwell stated the characteristics of creative thinkers as:
- Great value for ideas
- Readiness to explore options
- Willingness to embrace ambiguity
- Celebration of offbeat
- Ability to connect the dots
Which one do you have? And, most importantly, it is not enough to get creativity but to strive for innovation because creativity is thinking new things while innovation is putting new things into action. Have a lovely day!
