Kore 10 Tips for Sparking Creativity in Teams

 

1

Draft an inspiring vision of how great the teamwork outcomes can be and ask the team members to contribute their ideas and help you shape a shared vision.  >>>

2

Nourish love for the consumers of the teamwork outcomes and a shared burning desire to create great things for them.

3

Establish a creative dissatisfaction attitude and nourish love for change, risk taking and experimentation with new ideas.

4

Nourish passion for cross-pollinating ideas, brainstorming, synergizing diverse ideas and generating breakthroughs that stimulate growth.  >>>

5

Throw a challenge and ask the team to come up with creative solutions. Provide guiding principles. Divide the ideation process into two phases – independent ideation (‘Garden’ phase) and integration of individual ideas (‘Kitchen’ phase).

6

Encourage the team members to challenge assumptions, break rules, think differently, inventively, laterally, and outside the box.

7

Establish a continuous improvement mindset, encourage all team members to exchange proactively their views on opportunities to do something better.

8

When necessary, impose constraints on time and resources to make the team members leave their intellectual comfort zones and ‘create under the gun’.

9

Play entrepreneurial simulation games, such as Innovation Brainball (Innoball), with the most promising ideas in order to spark the next phase of creativity.

10

Reward idea generation – for both the effort made and the value created.
