Most people have heard it.
Innovation and creativity are critical to our personal and professional growth as well as our economy.
Research has consistently validated this since the 1950s. However, over 75% of U.S. professionals feel stuck or lack a creative outlet. This is a higher percentage than those who feel disengaged at work which is 55%, the number most HR staff would worry about. That’s a huge percentage of unhappy workers. Isn’t it odd that while we talk about how important critical creative thinking is, most employees say creativity is “not really for them” or that “they are not creative enough.”
