CREATIVITY
You are hired to run a hotel and you face a flood of complaints because the lifts are
too slow. Do you:
o Not run the lifts to the higher floors?
o Upgrade the lift system?
o Install full-length mirrors inside and outside the lifts?
o Have another solution?
See below for the creative solution*
Creativity training will not transform you into a Mozart or Picasso. Creative thinking
skills can, however, be learned, and they will help you think “outside the box” and
solve problems with a fresh approach and original solutions.
WHY is it essential to promote creativity?
For companies to be competitive and survive in a fast-moving world, innovation is
critical, and they need people who are creative, imaginative, flexible, and open to
change.
HOW to practise creativity?
Through:






Four steps in the idea development process: identify challenge/gather
data/clarify the problem/generate ideas
Lateral thinking to clarify and redefine problems
Techniques and tools that generate new ideas and make the most of divergent
and convergent thinking
Team-building activities
Playfulness and exercises that turn on the switch of creative thinking
Awareness of idea killers and conventional problem solving
* Creative solution: If the upgrade of the lift system is ruled out
because of the cost, you can look at this problem in a different
way by reformulating and redefining it. The problem, in this case,
might be boredom. With only the lift doors and blank walls to
stare at, guests are understandably getting bored. With the
mirrors and their reflections to look at when they use the lift,
people will stop complaining.
