In business, we tend to think of creativity in terms of design, development, manufacturing, marketing, and communications. What we don’t often consider is that creativity is also a trait that the leader of the company must possess.

“I am not creative,” you may say. “Does this mean I can’t be an effective leader?”

The fact is, you are creative. And you can, with application, become even more so. This type of creativity applies to how leaders view themselves, build their teams, and lead their companies.

In a recent podcast, John Maxwell talked about the four things leaders create.

Leaders create

  1. Confidence
  2. Ideas
  3. Strategy
  4. Options
