Creativity is strongly correlated with superior business performance, but there is often little time put aside for creativity and innovation in daily work practices. In fact, a global study by Adobe found that only 25% of people believe they are living up to their potential to be creative.
But why? Although creativity can drive economic growth, productivity is often a priority for businesses.
With only 1 in 4 people feeling they are living up to their creative potential and with pressures to increase productivity, the risk of even less time and space allocated for creativity is high.
Creativity links to art, entrepreneurship, overcoming obstacles and breaking free from constraints, but it also links to productivity because teams perform better when creativity is encouraged. There is no need to choose between creativity and productivity, you can inspire both.
The first step in creativity is to express ideas. When you bring ideas to life, you experience firsthand how the ability to create is limitless. Encouraging creativity promotes working without boundaries.
In his workshop for Bath Digital Festival, Mind Map Pro’s CEO, Rich Hill will teach attendees how to combine creativity with productivity using Mind Map Pro’s integrated agile task manager.
