Innovation and Creativity
Creativity at work involves individuals working alone, teams working together and the organization supporting everyone as a whole. But sometimes one or two of these elements are out of sync. Download our innovation profiler, brainstorming tool to explore if, where and how you could become more creative and innovative at work.
Creativity and Motivation
There is mounting evidence from creativity studies to suggest that the drive towards creativity is essentially intrinsic. Harvard's creativity professor, Teresa Amabile posits that:
"People will be most creative when they feel motivated primarily by the interest, enjoyment, satisfaction, and challenge of the work itself, and not by external pressures or inducements."
Which means that each of us could be encouraged to be creative and share ideas if the personal, value systems that drive and motivate us are recognised and rewarded. Download our article ‘ Creative Thinking Styles’ outlining the five key human value systems and how they can be energised and motivate us towards creativity.

A presentation has 4 dimensions:
1. The message itself.
2. The medium through which the message is communicated. e.g. PowerPoint, teleconference, webinar etc.,
3. The audience .
4. YOU !
It’s a well-acknowledged fact that about 15 minutes after we have watched and heard someone present we will have forgotten up to 90% of the things they said. We might remember some of what they did but we’ll never, ever, ever forget the way they made us feel. Download our handy fact sheet on how you can deliver a Four Dimensional presentation.
