Carlos Fosca's insight:

"There seems to be a common and misplaced perception about creativity in the workplace.  When most people picture a group of creative workers gathered around a white board rattling off one great idea after another and building a new future for their company, they likely envision a group of twenty-somethings, possibly sipping lattes and wearing skinny jeans and hipster glasses"....

What is the Best Organisational Structure for Creativity? - The Discipline of Innovation | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Creative people are different from you and me, right? Well, no. David Burkus dispels this myth and nine more in his excellent new book The Myths of Creativity. This holds important lessons for how to organise our firms to help them be more creative.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

"Hobcraft outlines some of the key things that enable innovation at Gore & Associates:

Information sharing and peer review are the norm.A strong focus on getting the environment right and the business stuff gets easy.More coaches than bosses, lots of peer reviews.Belief that giving the right people the tools and knowledge will bring out the best in everyone.Trust individuals to do the right thing."..

Researchers measure creativity

Researchers measure creativity | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
A team of researchers led by a Michigan State University neuroscientist has created a quick but reliable test that can measure a person's creativity from single spoken words.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

"The participants were measured for creativity through a series of more in-depth methods including story writing, drawing and their creative achievements in real life.

 

The results: Those who gave creative answers in the noun-verb test were indeed the most creative as measured by the more in-depth methods. This suggests the noun-verb test, or a future variation, could be successful by itself in measuring creativity."

A Double-edged Sword: Transformational Leadership and Individual Creativity

Transformational #Leadership and Individual #Creativity http://t.co/d3N32Y4Bx4

Via Susan Bainbridge
Carlos Fosca's insight:

"we argue that transformational leadership has two parallel effects. On the one hand, transformational leaders are assumed to
influence followers’ creativity positively, because they provide them with intellectual stimulation and serve as role models for unconventional behaviour and an original thinking style.

 

On the other hand and particularly due to their charisma and their narcissistic tendencies, transformational leaders are also likely to promote followers’ dependency which in turn may have a negative
impact on followers’ creativity. This negative side effect of transformational leadership via an increase in followers’ dependency is expected to attenuate the positive influence of transformational
leadership on followers’ creativity."

Five Steps To Business Creativity

Five Steps To Business Creativity | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Just about everybody agrees that in the modern competitive world of business creativity is essential to success. Yet so many leaders of organizations hinder original thinking by not giving their teams the room they need to be truly creative.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

“In this respect, true leaders must develop the capacity for radical originality: they must re-imagine and reinvent the world in totally unexpected ways. By doing that, they can create a culture that is open to creative risk-taking and an environment where failure is accepted as part of the creative process.”
