3 Ways to Nurture Creativity in the Workplace



The aim of a business, right from company registration through to seeing your first return on investment, is to grow. Innovate, develop and expand in a noticeable fashion. There is considerable competition in the world and to achieve this expansion you must stand out from the crowd. In the first stages of your company, when you are just starting out, this can be an uphill struggle; although it needn’t be.

Where you may lack budget or exposure in the industry you can make up for in other ways. The key way to do this is through the power of creativity. You don’t have to be the biggest fish in the pond to develop a flare. Harnessing the collective creative power of your team from start-up can be a great way to make you stand out from the crowd.

It only takes one brilliant idea to help your business stand out from the crowd. So, you want to create an atmosphere where this creation can be nurtured in the best way possible. But, what is the best way to do this in the modern work environment?

Here are 3 ways to nurture creativity in the workplace:

1. Don’t Think Outside the Box, Expand It

The best ideas are not necessarily new ones. Is Virgin a successful company because it invented the train? No, it is successful because it improved upon the existing base of a train and made it an experience that people sought after above over train companies.

The point is, you don’t have to invent the wheel in order to benefit from it. Obviously, you cannot replicate an idea entirely but creatively developing it is how humanity has reached the point it has today. A new way of looking at things is how the world develops. So, developing your company, in the same way, is the best course of action to take.

“My ambition comes from my passion: finding what I love and then expanding on that.” – Miranda Kerr

2. Environmental Factors

Let’s face it, being creative in a white box would be a tall order for almost everyone. However, you also can’t have an office that is an explosion of an artist’s palette (unless you are someone like Google, of course).

Stifling your employee’s creativity with a boring environment is a sure way to ensure that the ideas in your company do not develop. Promote thought and interaction by investing in an interesting piece of art, partaking in a fun table tennis game in the break room or even just some having some music playing in the background. It makes for a livelier work environment.

Work is work, so it can’t be all fun and games in the pursuit of creativity (although you shouldn’t intend to bore your employees either). Yet, there are certain things that will help to get those creative juices flowing and keep your businesses productivity high!

3. Budget Isn’t Everything

As a start-up company, you may not have an abundance of money to throw into all of the things that a successful, bustling business needs. Marketing, for example, can be key to the success of your new company. But, this can be an expensive process for your business during these first baby steps.

In this case, you may find creativity will stretch a smaller budget a considerable amount. A lot of people equate marketing with spending a lot of money on flashing neon signs and proclaiming how good your business is to the world. Sometimes this is more of a hindrance than a help.

New opportunities for less expensive advertising is around every corner. Imagine being the first person to realise Facebook was a great platform to advertise from, now it is an industry standard. All of these marketing strategies began as a creative idea, a company that thought out of the box in one instance and created a marketing platform that has been extremely successful.

There are a number of roads you can navigate from the steam of a smaller budget. The power of social media should never be ignored, it’s mostly free and you can reach a surprising number of people with the right (high quality) content. In the same way, connecting with local businesses around you can be a free way to create exposure for your business in a local community.

“Money won’t create success, the freedom to make it will.” – Nelson Mandela

Similarly, reaching out to local publications and the like can also be a great way to gain exposure at a local level. None of which requires a huge budget; just a friendly face and a will to get creative with your methods.

Overall, staying creative is an important aspect of the workplace. It keeps your employees enthused, allows your company to grow in new and interesting ways that will ultimately benefit your business as a whole. Creativity is different for everyone, but if you aim to nurture it then you will often be pleasantly surprised by the benefits it can bring.

How to Break the Cycles of Mediocrity and Manifest Your Greatness

There is no greatness without becoming and there is no becoming with authenticity



Image Credit: Midjourney

In just a few weeks, we will be wrapping up 2023. Can you believe it? This year has been absolutely incredible for me.

I have seen amazing doors opened, new relationships formed and I am seeing dreams realized in my life. While this seems like the hallmarks of a great year, this has also been the most challenging year of my life. With all of the change happening in my life, I have been forced out of my comfort zone and challenged to grow in every area of my life.

I can truly say that I have made the most of my moments this year and I have used everything as a catalyst for maximizing my greatest potential.

As a revolutionary leader, I have the pleasure of consulting and advising leaders around the world to fulfill purpose, realize their greatest potential and make an impact.

I want to share some insights with you that will help you to break cycles of mediocrity and manifest your greatness

Everything legal must come through the matrix

I am sure that some of you are wondering why I am using the term matrix. However, what you have to understand is that I am trying to make a highly complex spiritual principle practical to understand.

Regardless of your spiritual beliefs, every life has an origin and I believe that origin is divine and begins with eternity. You are birthed from eternity and into time to fulfill a unique purpose and assignment in your lifetime and generation.

The matrix is simply the portal or vehicle that brings something out of the invisible realm and into tangible form. The problem with much of the teaching today is that it excludes the matrix. We are told to believe that success is instantaneous and overnight.

Nobody talks about how a dream progresses through stages beginning with visualization and ultimately culminating in manifestation. Without a matrix or portal then everything that you attempt to birth and build will be illegal.

The matrix not only makes you legal but it gives you the authority and power to function as the greatest expression of who you were created to be. 

Every matrix has an incubation process

While many people admire and respect me today, I remember a time when nobody knew who I was or the significance of my message. How did I get to where I am today? I got here through an incubation process.

In other words, everything that has been destined for your life is incubating and awaiting a set time of manifestation. The problem is that most people live their entire lives idle and never initiate the incubation process.

What do I meany by that? Most people are living reckless and very few people are living intentionally. I am amazed at the number of people I have conversations with that have no vision, goals or strategies for their lives. They show great promise and they have undeniable potential.

However, without development they will die with their dreams still in them.

Everything that has been destined for your life must be incubated and converted to become realities born to time. 

“Visualize this thing that you want, see it, feel it, believe in it. Make your mental blueprint and begin to build.” – Robert Collier

You must give expression to that which is not yet born to time

When you think about a matrix or a prophetic incubation process, you have to understand that potential is often unrealized and untapped. In other words, your potential is in raw form and your potential cannot serve you as long as it is untapped.

The thing that makes me valuable is that I have the ability to convert potential into power. I have done it in my own life and I have empowered leaders around the world to do the same. How do you convert potential into power?

First, it is important to note that you have to perceive potential. If you cannot perceive your potential then you can never cultivate your potential. In addition, you must take the time to cultivate your potential. We often get excited about our capabilities; however, we never expand our capacity in order to realize our greatest potential.

In other words, the strength of your potential is only discovered through your willingness to stretch. The more we are challenged the more we are empowered to expand our capacity for greatness. Most of all, you must begin to express your potential. The expression of potential is different for every person.

For example, the expression of my potential is best demonstrated through the thoughts, ideas, products, services, books, etc.

For another person the expression of potential may look like a screenplay, artwork, sports, scientific discoveries, medical breakthroughs, etc.

Regardless of the form of expression, I know that you will live empty and unfulfilled until you make the decision to express your potential. The expression of your potential gives voice to your dreams, life to your vision, significance to your moments and activates your true power.

You must manifest your greatness

As a revolutionary thinker and leader, my work has impacted people around the world. I am grateful that my life is a source of empowerment to so many people. However, before anyone could ever benefit from my life, I had to make a non-negotiable decision to become who I was born to be.

I wish I could tell you that this journey is easy and that you will get there overnight. However, in a world that celebrates us for doing we are often criticized for being. As a result, I wasted a lot of time trying to be who other people wanted me to be instead of being who I was born to be.

There is no greatness without becoming and there is no becoming with authenticity. It is through our bravery to be vulnerable that we ultimately manifest our greatness. We do not bless the world by being a duplicate. We bless the world when we honor our difference. When you honor your difference you honor your potential.

Ultimately, your difference is how you manifest your greatness.

When you present anything but your authentic self to the world, you are playing small and you are robbing the world of your significance. Manifesting your greatness requires you to master your gifts.

The latter is the most dangerous of the two. (more…)
