CU Management: The Key To Leading An Innovative Organization

Foster creativity from the top down.

There are two things that leaders must do if they want to lead an innovative, resilient and future-focused organization: Be a creative leader and be creative. Your role is powerful in fostering a climate for innovation in your organization — if you believe creativity is important, then you have to be creative. Train the leadership team first. Coach the other employees through the application of creativity skills. Show your people that it is OK to struggle with crazy ideas, make mistakes and fail.

“Don’t force people through some lock-step method or overwhelm them with creativity tools just because you think they are shiny or fun. Your people want to solve problems more effectively—they don’t want to become creative
process junkies. You don’t need to know every part of a bicycle to ride one well.”
