Innovation is the lifeblood of a business, so our leaders look for ways to encourage one of the basic ingredients of creativity – curiosity. To inspire our team members to remain open to new ideas, it’s a NOVA Marketing policy to foster these habits:
” Reading: Among the many other benefits that come with a regular reading routine, it opens our minds to options we might never have thought of on our own. We’re especially keen on reading about the stories of men and women we admire; knowing what trials they’ve overcome and how they did it helps us look at our own NOVA Marketing career journeys in a new light.
” Thinking: As busy professionals, we’re aware of the temptation to plow forward with projects and focus on nothing more than getting them done. There is a time and place for this type of focus, of course, but when the situation allows we find it helpful to take things a little slower and consider our actions. This is how we refine our processes and develop novel solutions.
” Listening: The best way to develop a multifaceted viewpoint is to listen to how other people see the world. This takes practice, but we find that being active listeners gives us insights we might not otherwise gain. Another interesting benefit is that the more practiced we become at listening, the more information other people are willing to share with us.
Foster creativity in yourself and others with these behaviors. To learn more, follow NOVA Marketing on Newswire.
