Many people would not include creativity as a behavior that is important in leadership. However, it is likely our perspective on the meaning of creativity that inhibits us from recognizing and leveraging our own creative capabilities. You don’t have to be in a creative field — such as an artist, designer, comedian, advertising executive, musician, engineer, or architect — to be considered creative. In fact, if you want to be creative, you simply need to be willing to imagine that things can be different. Creativity comes from our experiences and the way in which we interpret them. If you want to become more creative, you can focus on two simple things: – Experiment more – not big risky things but little things. – Get flexible in the way you interpret your performance – when it goes wrong say, “Great, I will try it differently the next time.”
