Creativity in the workplace is absolutely important. If you can apply creative thinking to your everyday work life, you’ll find that not only will the day stop feeling like drudgery, but you’ll be unlocking more meaningful results.

Being creative in the workplace goes far beyond making the prettiest spreadsheet or the most colourful PowerPoint presentation. Instead, there are two main ways that creativity is absolutely needed in the workplace: creative thinking and creative problem solving.

Creative thinking is pretty simple to define, but a bit harder to implement. Basically, if you’re a creative thinker, it means that you come up with ideas that are entirely unique.

It’s easy to come up with the same rote concepts for a project or a new campaign, especially if you’ve used them before. But when you start thinking creatively and getting a little daring, you may be surprised at what your brain can come up with. It’s this “throw everything to the wall and see what sticks” method that creative thinkers truly shine at.

An additional bonus to being a creative thinker is that you understand the success in failure. I know this sounds a bit strange, but hear me out: creative thinkers know that one’s talents are best used to make results that might come from unordinary circumstances or out-of-the-box methods.
