Five Ways to Foster Creativity

Posted on Jul 27, 2016, by Mollie Williams

In a world of design and the constant quest for innovation, the need for creativity and new thinking is never-ending. Foster individual and group creativity with the following five tips, some of which are given by our very own creative talents.  

  1. Practice mindfulness so that new ideas come freely and without the distraction of stress.
  2. Create a company culture that encourages people to take appropriate risks, a recommendation of Chris Desoiza, Vice President of Research & Development at Milliken, so that a desire to challenge the status quo isn’t thwarted by fear of failure.
  3. Take to nature and re-examine what occurs daily in the natural world through a new lens, a tactic Milliken designer Holly Nguyen relies upon when finding inspiration for new floor covering collections.
  4. Build creativity into collaborative teams by purposefully constructing groups with a diverse range of personalities, a strategy from the Harvard Business Review that is supported by data.
  5. Find true purpose in your work to ignite a passion in even your daily activities.
