What's included

10 videos2 readings5 quizzes

We want to be more creative ourselves, and we also want to support the creativity of others. In this module, we examine how to help encourage creativity in our teams and organizations. We explore how the cultures we set can support creativity though supporting members’ motivation to be creative and providing opportunities to be creative. We examine how core tasks around providing feedback, setting rewards, and managing resources and setting constraints can encourage rather than discourage creativity. We also review the role of context, and how the spaces in which we work signal creativity is welcome or unwelcome. Through our actions and leadership, we can foster openness, autonomy, and playful experimentation, and thereby support creativity in our teams and organizations.
