There can be no doubt that a confused, chaotic, distracted and an unsettled mind can lead to some spectacular states of creativity, but for most of us it’s a rare event. And when it comes to being creative and innovative in a business setting those states will more often get you fired than hailed as a creative genius. It’s better to leave the turbulent mind to writers of fiction and artists deeply involved in self expression.
A top requirement to encouraging creativity and innovation within a business is the ability to communicate your ideas to a group of peers in your team. So being creative generally is not enough you also need to bring the rest of the explorers along with you on your journey to find the next big thing. If management is finding it hard to take ideas to fruition and to create an acceptable ROI you’ll you need a facilitator to help guide the process.
