Creativity at work
Hello everyone, today some interesting information about the innovation and creativity, this may be functional for people that are looking for fresh ideas. Don’t forget to share it. Have a nice day
Creativity is more than just a Word; it is the secret of success for many businesses. The word “innovation” and “creativity” are frequently mentioned by executives and business owners. Many use them, but just a few know how to promote it in their work places, and even fewer executives actually practice them. In a recent survey, executives of successful companies in the U. S. A. were asked what was needed to survive in the 21st century. The most common answer was “innovation and creativity”. But few of them considered that they were doing it well.
Many companies create a stimulating working environment, but some promote more innovation than others. Creativity may be improved by a process called positive alteration. It shakes up the way things are and pushes companies into renovation. Companies and individual adapt to changes as they take advantage of the crisis.
It is believed that creativity, the ability to express new and valuable ideas is mysterious that only fewer very intelligent people have it. That is not true! Recent research shows that everyone has more or less the same creative potential. There are four kind of abilities that make us more creative:
- OBSERVATION: look for new ideas, even if they don’t seem important at the time. Artist and inventors keep a notebook handy and they write down ideas when they occur to them.
- CHALLENGE: though situations and difficulties might be scary, but they are also wonderful creative opportunities to have new ideas or recycle old ones.
- EXPANDING HORIZONS: learning about other topics not related to your actual job, also keeps you be more creative.
- SURROUNDINGS: multiple ideas are usually obtained by visiting diverse and interesting social and sport places. A static atmosphere, the same desk, the same co-workers day after day can be suffocating.
