Why is creativity important in business today?

How to prepare for the workforce shift of 2020 - graphicThe World Economic Forum evaluated the most important work skills that will be requested by 2020. Which work skill changes the most between 2015 and 2020? Creativity. In these five years creativity rises 7 positions to become the third most import job skill.  Furthermore, creativity is also closely related to the two most important work skills: complex problem solving, and critical thinking.

Fortunately, creativity is a skill that can be taught and learned. One of the biggest myths about creativity is that it is a gift that was only given to certain people. But the truth is, everyone is born with the ability to be creative and it is essential to cultivate that creativity. Our creative talents are diverse and our creative abilities differ, but it is in every human’s DNA to be creative.

Launch of Creativity Course 2018

To help organizations develop a culture of innovation and to use the next two years to be prepared for the work skills needed in 2020, The Dirty Easel is launching a new program in 2018 and has developed a 12-month course that teaches people to be creative as individuals and as part of a team. In this course creativity is cultivated through painting and other art forms and applied to creative problem solving at work.

Goals of the Creativity Course 2018:

  • Building confidence in creative abilities across the team
  • Understanding and applying the creative process at work
  • Embracing failure as part of the process and as a stimulant for new ideas
  • Growing collaborative creativity

How is the Creativity Course structured?

The creativity course starts with an initial assessment. After that, the team will get together once every quarter for a 2-hour workshop to develop their creativity skills step by step. In between those hands-on training sessions the team will deepen the learning experience through quick exercises and mini-assignments. The materials provided can be used as icebreakers in meetings and individually to step aside from a work problem and get a quick boost of creativity.
