Creativity in Leadership Takes Strategy

In my work, the overwhelming majority of people I encounter do not feel that they are “creative”. And while there are those who are labeled as “creatives”, everyone does have creativity they can bring out of themselves.

Rae Ann Fera of the Fast Company Leadership Blog wrote today about Sir Ken Robinson’s thoughts on leadership and creativity.

I’ve always believed that we all have these immense natural talents–we don’t all know what they are and we have to discover them…

Fera shares that a recent survey has shown that top CEOs have a top priority to learn how to promote creativity in their organizations. As leaders, we are not necessarily responsible for coming up with creative ideas but rather we need to work to create an environment where our team can be creative together in our strategy and planning.
