More on Creative Thinking

July 11, 2008
  1. Write it down. – Encourage your team to write and share their lives with others. (More blogging!)
  2. Hire smart. – Hire risk-takers. You need people that are willing to embrace change.
  3. Bring in outsiders. – Bring in outside perspective to expand your thinking. (That’s how we arrived at our live-streaming technology for multi-site.)
  4. Be flexible. Very flexible. – The same strategy doesn’t work for every situation.

    Good list.

    How do you hire risk-takers and still create a stable organization? That’s mostly rhetorical, but I mean this: how do you balance stability and innovation in your creative thinking.

    Or is creative thinking always unstable?

    My basic thoughts are balance the risk-takers with non-risktakers; we need people who risk and people who guide. Of course, responsible risk takers are always a help.

    I am balanced by a leader who is more calculating and conservative; we make a great team!

    (look forward to hearing from you!)
