Greetings from CoreNet. I am attending the conference here in Sydney along with some colleagues from the firm. In the ‘Leading Creative People’ session we were introduced to approaches and tools for increasing creative thinking in the workplace. What is interesting to know is that that there is plenty of creative talent in every organisation. It is just a matter of tapping into it and then implementing the ideas that spring from it. We learned that we need to give people permission to be creative, that the challenge of management is to make every employee part of a creative culture and that it is ok to make mistakes.
Did you know that the Top 5 creative drivers are:
3. Being part of a team
4. Artistic Integrity
5. Financial Compensation
And that the Top 5 creative killers are:
1. Risk Aversion
2. Wrong creative structure
4. Not listening
5. Status Quo
The session prompted me to think about the way we manage creativity in Jones Lang LaSalle. My conclusion: we have the creative talent – we just need to take the time to cultivate it. I think the tools and technical presented at this session can help us do just that!
