Fosteringcreativity<br />Without! your business stands still as the world changes around you.<br />To foster creativity: remove barriers and set up a culture that stimulates it.<br />The creative person generates new ideas; the entrepreneur turns them into profits. <br />Leaders are either personally creative or quick to exploit the ideas of creative people. <br />Entrepreneurship is the process of marrying a good idea and a market need;<br />Entrepreneurs take the risks, creative employees provide the raw material<br />Creativity depends on creative qualities, a supportive environment and opportunity<br />Innovation in organizations is very much like thought leadership except that the thought leader does not need to be personally creative. He or she can promote the creative ideas of othersinstead<br />
