Open, honest communication.
Creativity and culture in the workplace come from the same place: A feeling of trust and safety in your workspace, with your team, and surrounding your mission.
In an article on Fortune, Nancy Brown, CEO of the American Heart Association, explains that creativity in the workspace is crucial — and can only happen when employees feel free to share ideas.
When employees know their ideas are valued, and their work is important.
And certainly, when they’re connected to their company’s ideals.
Creating culture is creating meaning within your organization. But for that meaning to be worth anything — your employees have to feel free to run with it.
