6 Rules to unlock creative power in the workplace

I saw an excellent post by IDEO (you canĀ follow them on Instagram) recently that sums up the key points to enable creativity in the workplace.

We’ve added and built upon these ideas (much like #2!)

Rules to work and live by

  1. ENCOURAGE wild ideas. The wilder the better!
  2. BUILD on the ideas of others. Foster healthy verbal ‘ping-pong’ sessions. Dedicate walls for sharing these ideas!
  3. DEFER judgement. Don’t be a ‘con-killer’ (conversation killer)
  4. STAY FOCUSSED on the topic. Define the problem initially, and always refer back to the objectives.
  5. ONE CONVERSATION at a time. Everyones voice is important, so respect the use of it! Using your ears is 95% of an effective conversation!
  6. BE VISUAL. Use whiteboards. Use paper. Use plasticine. Whatever works for you…
