Creativity and innovation
I write on creative leadership, innovation, business model innovation, best-selling authors and creative entrepreneurs. I’m looking for changemakers working on pushing corporate culture forward through creativity. On occasion, I write about stuff that doesn’t fit neatly into one of these categories. www.creativecorporateculture.com

5 Ways to Bring Creativity Back to Your Culture

5 Ways to Bring Creativity Back to Your Culture | Creativity and innovation | Scoop.it
All too often, entrepreneurs build companies that stifle the very creativity they need. Here's how to get that creative spark back.

 

Excerpted:  Three changes (of five) you can make today to bring creativity back to your culture.

Offer Unlimited Vacation

Offering unlimited vacation won't make people skip work every Friday or leave people hanging at deadlines. Instead, it will give them control to choose when they decide to work and when they don't. Although this may seem trivial, being able to choose means everything in a creative culture.

   

Ditch the Meetings

The worst part about meetings is that they're incredibly easy to add. Even if you make an agenda, the number will only go up as you grow in size. As a result, little creative thinking will get done during the day.

    

Nix Department Goals

Department goals often help managers more than employees. Generally, you'll end up wasting valuable hours setting new goals and then even more time asking why you didn't hit them.
 

Worse still, each department relies on resources they don't control and departments they're not a part of to reach their goals. This can result in teams signing up for work they were unaware of, which can lead to arguments about whose goals are more important.

 

Give Plenty of Feedback

...A lot of companies make feedback a formal process, waiting until the end of the month, quarter, or year to share how they actually feel.

Creative cultures thrive on timely, spontaneous feedback. Whether it's good or bad, feedback helps teams raise their own expectations. It's the fuel you need to ignite a creative culture. And who doesn't want one of those?

I left off his "Let Employees Work Remotely" not because I don't believe it helps, it's just that it has been challenged because of the need to interact with others, examine blind spots, and building a culture does involve a certain amount of showing up.

Complexity and chaos science help us understand this. Humans added a complexity that is not apparent in other systems. We are agents or actors with complex responses. Culture is about people and the person.

This is coming from the old competitive mindset, and it's not critical on the current capitalist way to provide finances etc. (so it doesn't go for the roots of the challenge); nevertheless I think it can be thought of as part of the bridge we are building towards a generative and beautiful world.
