Creativity is not reserved for artists and inventors; it’s a key skill for all of us in business today. Creativity is important for organizations. Period. It’s a simple formula: Higher creativity leads to greater innovation within the organization and thus, greater success over the long run. In fact, creativity and innovation are integral to an organization’s ability to survive and thrive in today’s competitive marketplace.
Creativity is also becoming a very important skill for leaders. A 2010 IBM survey of more than 1,500 CEOs across the world rated creativity as the most important factor for future success. Creativity is the highest levels of human performance. It is part of what makes us human and is the key to a more successful life. Kim Corfman, Professor of Marketing at NYU Stern School of Business, believes that the happiest people are those who lead more creative lives: “I think people will have better lives, if they are more creative problem solvers,’ she says.
All this said, we are unfortunately facing a dry spell in creativity. Schools, universities and workplaces drown our creativity in routine, procedure and fear of failure until we are all using the same methods and not thinking of new ideas.
