Organizations that integrate creativity into their DNA achieve significant benefits, including better team performance, increased flexibility, greater retention rates, creative problem solving, and strategic decision making. Some say it?s the ?secret sauce? that?s needed to gain a competitive advantage in the marketplace.
But creativity isn?t limited to artists, inventors, and entrepreneurs. The fact is everyone is creative. Just as there are multiple styles of intelligence, there are multiple styles of creativity that produce different yet equally valuable results.
