Creating an Environment for Creativity
Some questions we'll consider...
Being creative is a superstition. Maybe it’s just a cliché, and we don’t really know what it is. The boss might say, "I want you to be more creative." The word has been so commonly used, and it gets mixed up with being innovative, but what does it mean? A Zen Buddhist would say it's when you’re being. Are there different expressions? Clever or innovative, smarter, productive, or more results? Compared to what? Can we articulate the idea of creativity in a way that noone’s ever discovered? How does one create an environment where people can be creative? Is it even reasonable to have creativity as a performance criteria?
