Managing Creativity & Creative People

Online Life Coaching & Mentorship

Even conservative organizations must ride the cutting edge of innovation, managing future success and future risk. Creativity generates both practical and impractical ideas; and both worthless and worthwhile strategies. Managers must manage their own creativity, the creative people in their organizations - and the organizational creative process.

Psychologists have speculated that most people use about 10% of their brain capacity. If we allow ourselves to access and apply a further 10%, your world - and our world - will change. However, the vast majority of people over recorded history, including those in academia, art and commerce, avoid or merely pretend creativity.

Few people challenge acknowledged methodologies, most people simply copy the methods developed by others. Sometimes, innovators may be punished, rather than rewarded, for their creativity.

Creative people can displace Dictators, Bureaucracies and Gods

Creativity can provide original responses to problems ... and can present new problems. Manufacturers of candles did not welcome the innovation of Tesla and Edison. The creative outburst of the "world wide web" is having similar effects on organizations worldwide. The internet is rapidly catalyzing changes in corporate structure, governmental activities, education and medicine.

Few people are encouraged to develop their creative potential. The risks outweigh the advantages. True creativity has unforeseeable results. Even at universities, a pretence of creativity gains the highest marks.

Not only is there little "mental space" for creativity; teachers and managers may ridicule, hide, criticize or even steal creative solutions of their students and staff. The popularity of "Dilbert" cartoons suggest that many organizations suffer from "pointy haired managers".

How to Encourage Creativity in an Organization

  1. Encourage free information flow
  2. Actively respect for employees' ideas
  3. Provide fair consideration and timely feedback
  4. Expect and participate in reasonable risk-taking
  5. Provide time for creative employees to engage in creative work
  6. Provide constructive feedback for creative ideas and strategies
  7. Assign tasks requiring creativity to employees who show creative behavior

Managers who develop creative environments reduce the risk that fear of ridicule will stifle creativity, and increase the likelihood of breakthroughs. We coach managers to implement programs that encourage and coach creativity and manage creative people within organizations.

Creativity Coaching, Creativity Training and Creativity Management helps people develop and manage their innate creative skills. This coaching and training utilize creativity skills as models and case studies - while encouraging people to create, enhance and test their own innovative ability.
