“My experiences and observations in a nutshell.” A. Tate, Ed.D.

How can an organization encourage creativity to fuel innovation to improve systems, increase outcomes, and create a culture that finds comfort in discomfort?
  1. Maintain a small learning community that is connected through reliable communication pathways.
  2. Experiment with new methods, systems, and structures in controlled ways or within controlled groups.
  3. Encourage non-routine practices to develop based on need or employee recommendation.
  4. Value employee insight and implement novel ideas with follow-up to see if intended results are achieved.
  5. Remain flexible, nimble, and open-minded.
  6. Enjoy the status quo but do not be bound by it.
  7. Understand that creativity is what fuels innovation.
  8. Find comfort in discomfort.
