5 Things That are Killing Innovation in Your Company   Sometimes there are factors at play within your workplace that hinder creativity and act as innovation killers without you even realising it. Knowing what hinders creativity is just as important as knowing what promotes and fosters it.   1. Too Much or Too Little Team Work Creativity can prosper in two different work situations: on an individual level and in a team setting. Each of these situations provide different opportunities and frames of mind for catalysing that spark of genius. Individualistic thinking can enable ideas to flow at a highly focused and deep level. By comparison, the energetic and dynamic atmosphere of team problem solving generates ideas at a rapid rate. Though different, each is equally viable and important for progress and innovation. If you want more creativity, you’ll have to create a physical environment that can readily echo and support each of these types of situations. The environment for teamwork is fundamentally different by principle than the environment for individual work. Create balance by offering opportunities for employee collaboration while also providing quiet places for thinking and focusing. Working individually enables one to deeply attune to the problem. Giving something your full attention can be crucial for creativity. When paying attention to something, you fully immerse yourself in it, something that is not so easy to do in a team setting. If you can afford to do and support both, create corresponding calm and energetic atmospheres. A cozy zone that is peaceful and perfect for reflecting and researching will be perfect for fostering creativity within an individual. An open space that can seat lots of people will be more suitable for employee collaboration. If you have limited space, try thinking up of a way to transition from context to context by quickly rearranging furniture when the occasion calls for it or by scheduling particular slots in a day where teams can collaborate.   2.You’ve Become Detached A great leader is present and involved within his company. However, lately you’ve been working extra long hours and going to too many meetings. Ask yourself, have you lost sight of your team and workplace culture? As you get busier, it’s easier to lose awareness of what’s affecting what. So, you may be unable to identify innovation killers simply because you are so out of tune with your company culture. If this is the case, you can quickly re-establish familiarity with the state of affairs by asking yourself these few questions: •How does the team handle failure? Are they aversive? •What happened the last time there was failure? Was someone chewed out?...
