Creativity can be frightening. Creativity brings change, and change makes us uncomfortable.
While change is Biblical, we do not always understand it, Thus, we stifle creativity.
Can leaders encourage creativity without the fear of change? Yes.
Create a “safe” environment. People need to know it is okay to discuss, even disagree, where there is no violation of Scripture.
Equip people with the right tools. When the right tools are provided, creativity soars.
Give heed to personal advice. Be cautious when promoting our own ideas.
Remember, we want to help others achieve success. Creativity can make the difference. Encourage it!
