Critical thinking and creativity are two important elements to organisational success. Especially in today’s situation, where markets grow more global, open and diverse, creative minds are so much essential.
Businesses (regardless of size and nature) that embrace and cultivate critical and creative thinking are more profitable and competitive. These businesses are more adaptable to change, and create better practices for clients and customers.
If you have creative minds working together as a team, you got a group of people with critical minds. From an organizational problem solving perspective, critical thinking is needed to analyse and evaluate the situation, and then again to identify the best solution to a problem. Meanwhile, creative thinking, serves us well in generating possible solutions to a problem.
Creative thinking is important in your business competitiveness, as well as in internal and external customers’ satisfaction. The good news is that creative thinking is also positively contagious: when employees generate and express their creative ideas, other employees catch on their creative energy and start contributing to the business’s creativity level. Leadership can take a role of a facilitator to unleash the creativity among employees.
