How to Cultivate Your Creativity
Dellabough says tapping into your creativity is important because it helps improve problem-solving skills, allows for greater flexibility, and can lead to new ideas.
She suggests trying one of the following tactics – even better if you try the one that is hardest for you – to get your creative juices flowing:
- Step outside of your comfort zone
- Cook a meal without a recipe
- Talking to a stranger
- Learn something new (or through a different channel)
- Change up your usual routine
Tapping into your creativity can help you be a more impactful team member and a stronger leader, she says. People aren’t “creative” or “not creative”, Dellabough says, everyone has the ability to strengthen their creativity skills.
