Innovation

Are you a creative person? If you’ve always wished you could be more creative or innovative we have great news for you. Studies haves shown that your ability to generate innovative ideas is not merely a function of the mind, but also a function of behaviors. If you change your behavior you will change your creative impact.
Hal Gregersen, author of The Innovators DNA says that “in terms of creativity, we each have a unique set of learnable skills that we rely on in order to get to the ideas that will give us some insight.” The learnable skills are associating, questioning, observing, networking and experimenting. Some quick insights:
 

  • Questions – since questions drive answers, you get new answers when you ask new questions. Rather than focusing only on defining the problem, spend ten minutes asking questions about the problem.
  • Make it a Habit – you can’t become more creative or develop innovative ideas unless you make time for it. You must schedule time to practice the behaviors of creativity to increase your creativity quotient.
