At the core of creative ideas is originality. In our rapidly changing world, all organizations need creative people with creative ideas, from leadership to the front line. When I asked Tamara Kleinberg, founder and serial innovator at The Shuuk, how someone can be more creative, she replied, “Give yourself permission. We tend to put a lot of layers on our own ideas before we even put them into the world. We label them as bad, dumb, not good enough or it will never work before our creativity even has a chance to breathe life.” By TC North
