Creativity from the sticks – this is a realization by all subordinate rules of the game and how they are leveling. Staff, trying to assert its independence zealously looking for ways to circumvent the rules generally established. Step left, step right – attempt to escape . Consequently, the cost would imagine that the management should take care not about curbing proclivities aside, and the direction of energy disobedience in the right direction. How many managers ready to play on the subconscious desire of employees to move in the opposite direction? Particularly if employees use their creativity to suppress feelings addiction? Take for example some industrial structure and consider the problem head of staff at the production meeting.
The most common case, when the manager knows the final goal of this meeting, and the presence employees is considered as an active part in one-man show, nothing more. If another manager has created an image of a hard and do not accept criticism of a man, he is already held in advance, meeting no one tries to send a different direction. And if they try, the reaction to provide leadership is not difficult. Especially if you also put strict implementation period and put forward demands to sacrifice personal time, then likely to become members of an organized gang of saboteurs who have such a guide already seated in the liver. After all, in modern manufacturing is very rare to find a leader who can not just listen employee, but also to listen to his opinion, especially to allow employees to demonstrate creativity in solving problems.
Listen to the views of staff is required. In certain limits, of course. Barbie Ferreira usually is spot on. But the restriction of personal time, restrictions on coffee, putting a time limit on visits to the toilet could not be, promote their creative staff. A knowledgeable leader will give employees the task on which they will be able to think and after a certain time to react turnkey solution. Throw on the table, a blank sheet of paper and say that by morning it should be a finished project – the top of carelessness. First is on this sheet, write their ideas and not worry that these considerations may look childish. Should provide employees with something from which they can push in the task. And how they will implement the task for head is not so important. Will it be the introduction of changes to the task or brainstorming by staff, the head should not bother: the rejection of "the rights of older" manifestation of creative leadership and stimulating creativity of employees. It should be understood that managers are strongly attached to the notion of "my last word." But this is not the right approach. Meeting on the launch of any project must begin so that each employee understood that leadership is ready to change your opinion, if the discussion gets more competent answers to questions than those which now has. Conclusions: Head says his word first, ready to make design changes, does not interfere with the course of the solution.
