Organizations that integrate creativity into their DNA achieve significant benefits, including better team performance, increased flexibility, greater retention rates, creative problem solving, and strategic decision making. And when it comes to leadership, creativity is the key to gaining a competitive advantage in the marketplace.
But just as there are multiple styles of intelligence, there are multiple styles of creativity that produce different yet equally valuable results. Variations in how individuals look at the world, gather information, and respond to challenges all have an impact on creative contributions. That’s why self-discovery is an important first step in realizing a leader’s creative potential.
