Creativity can be frightening. Creativity brings change, and change makes us uncomfortable.
We often associate change with a departure from Scripture. Is it possible for leaders to encourage creativity without the fear of this kind of change? Yes.
Create a “safe” environment. People need to know it is okay to discuss and even disagree where there is no violation of Scripture.
Equip people with the right tools. It is difficult for people to creatively develop ideas if they are ill equipped.
Give heed to personal advice. If we want to encourage creativity, then be careful about promoting your own ideas.
Creativity makes a difference. Encourage it!
