Reading INC today and came across an article about how the creative forces in culture stay creative. Here is the list:

  • Get Multicultural
  • Provide Lots Of Free Time To Think
  • Encourage Risky Behavior
  • Hire Smart
  • Write It Down
  • Bring In Outsiders
  • Do What You Do For Free
  • Be Flexible, VERY flexible
  • Mix Up Your People
LOVE THIS LIST! if you are trying to create a culture of creativity in your organization a few of these ideas could revolutionize your world. You have to know you are in the box, before you can ever get out of the box. Also, no one is ever as cool as they think they are, so be willing to accept outside ideas. Marry the BEST idea, not YOUR idea.
