'C' Disposition - Creativity
I may be biased, but I think educators have a special appreciation for creativity. As an elementary teacher, responsible for effectively teaching all the major subjects to 25-30 different young learners, creativity was not to be underrated. Going further, a group of teachers participating in a school-wide focus is an explosion of creativity on display. For example, a school’s college-week will turn classrooms into replicas of alma maters, marching band demonstrations and college admission simulations.
There are countless stories of the value of promoting and fostering creativity in business. Whether new to business or established, nurture creativity. Allow for processes that will encourage the sharing of ideas, the acknowledgment of ideas, vetting of those ideas, and implementation if those ideas. This proves to be beneficial to the organization or those the organization is serving. There is much truth that two (or more) heads are better than one. If allowed, you may find that fostering creativity across your organization can help good ideas become great ideas. Also, remember that the absence of control(s) can breed creativity. The creative process should not just be assigned or controlled by a selective few in your organization, but nurtured across the organization.
