Managing Team Creativity

with Drew Boyd

Video: Boosting creativity at work

Creativity is an essential skill. Companies expect their employees to generate new ideas in every part of the business, not just for new products and services. But many people don't see themselves as creative. They've been told all their lives that they're not creative, by their friends, their coworkers, even their teachers at school. I have good news for you, creativity is a skill. It's not a gift. It's not something you're born with. You can learn creativity like you would any other skill, be it in business or perhaps learning to play a musical instrument or learning a new sport.

Boosting creativity at work

Creativity is an essential skill. Companies expect their employees to generate new ideas in every part of the business, not just for new products and services. But many people don't see themselves as creative. They've been told all their lives that they're not creative, by their friends, their coworkers, even their teachers at school. I have good news for you, creativity is a skill. It's not a gift. It's not something you're born with. You can learn creativity like you would any other skill, be it in business or perhaps learning to play a musical instrument or learning a new sport.

And the best part, you can learn to be creative in a systematic way, in a predictable way. Imagine being able to generate new ideas, anytime you want. My name is Drew Boyd and I've written a lot about creativity and I've observed teams in practice using creativity method. I know what works and what doesn't work. In this video, I'm going to share with your nine simple tips and techniques that will immediately boost your creative output at work, whether you're working alone, or with a group of colleagues.
