An article in Fast Company states: For CEOs, creativity is now the most important leadership quality for success in business, outweighing even integrity and global thinking, according to a new study by IBM. Creative leaders are more prepared to break the status quo of industry, enterprise, and revenue models, and they are 81% more likely to rate innovation as a “crucial capability.”
Whoa. Creativity now outweighs integrity and global thinking. So why is creativity so important?
In business today, there is a war on talent, and thinking creatively makes you more valuable. Creative thinkers are more likely to change and adapt with new trends. They see new perspectives and new solutions to old problems. Creative leaders drive growth in their organizations.
