If you think your company doesn’t need creative talent, think again!
You want your company to succeed. You’ve got a million-dollar idea and a sound strategy to carry it out. But unless you have the right people to execute your ideas, those ideas and strategies are of little use. And while you may be thinking that the business you are in doesn’t require creative talent, the reality is that every company, no matter what the industry, needs those with creative abilities to propel them to success. Here’s why:
- They’re committed
Say what you will about those with a flair for the creative, but if there’s one quality they share, it’s commitment. Artists, writers, designers, no matter where their creativity lies, have passion for what they do and they bring it in the form of unwavering commitment to their work.
- They’re innovators
Creative talent seek originality in all that they do, so it makes sense that they are often the innovator or the one that comes up with a brainstorm that no one else has thought of. They’re ability to think differently is often the key to a company gaining an edge over their competition.
- They’re uninhibited
Artists, writers and other creatives don’t restrict themselves or others to a certain solution and are unafraid to express their ideas or opinions. Even if their thought process is seemingly radical at times, creative team members will be the ones to spark a discussion and express their ideas fully. This freedom of thought and expression gives way to forging new solutions and ideas among the entire team.
- They’re curious
To a creative person, there’s nothing more exciting than finding out how or why something works or doesn’t work. If it’s a marketing idea or a product, they’ll be the ones who will look at it every which way to Sunday and come up with a large number of ideas or solutions. They are also known to create many “what if” scenarios, manipulating ideas by enhancing them or changing certain aspects.
- They’re open to criticism
Creative people are generally good at taking feedback and often crave it so they can improve on what they do. They’re also known to offer constructive criticism to others because of their free-thinking and open-minded approach to ideas and solutions.
