Climate for Organisational Creativity
 
Creativity is best nurtured in a permissive climate which encourages the exploration of new ideas and new ways of doing things. The following aspects, if practiced, would contribute to fostering creativity in organization.
 
Accept change: Organisation members must believe that change will benefit them and the organization. Some resistance to change is found in many organizations for fear of losing position, learning new skills, etc. Such a resistance to change has to be overcome by clarifying the need and urgency for change. The adage that routine drives out the non-routine has to be revisited and must be seen the other way.
 
Encourage new ideas: Managers in the organizations, from top to the down must make it clear in word and deed that they welcome new approaches. To encourage creativity, managers must listen to their subordinates ideas and suggestions/ways of doing things. They must have an open mind.
 
Permit more interaction: A permissive, creative climate can be fostered if individuals have the opportunity to interact with other members of the group and other groups in the organization. Such interaction encourages the exchange of useful information, the free flow of ideas, and fresh perspectives on problems.
 
Tolerate failure: Inspite of the best efforts and intentions, failure is not uncommon. Tolerance for failure needs to be imbibed. Failure has to be understood as a learning experience.
 
Freedom to achieve: For the mind to explore new ideas there has to be abundant freedom of thought and action.Organisation members must be properly guided towards achievement. A supportive climate will help gain control over the time and money invested in creative behavior.
 
Offer recognition: Creative individuals are motivated to work hard on tasks that interest them. They must be rewarded for the tasks well done. By offering recognition in such tangible forms as salary increase, recognition, the message gets conveyed that creative behavior is valued and rewarded.
