Have you ever worked in an environment where you felt like your creativity was shut down? How motivated did you feel to do an awesome job? Probably not too motivated, right?
Productivity and creativity often go hand-in-hand. It’s called intrinsic motivation, the idea that most employees will be more creative when they are motivated by their interests, enjoyment, satisfaction, and being challenged with their work, instead of motivating with outside pressures that cause a person to be systematic, direct, pushy or aggressive. The more personal motivation that an employee feels towards their position and responsibilities, the more creative they’ll be. Every great product, service, and idea starts with creative thinking by someone who felt personally motivated to work. The more creative your employees are, the more your organization benefits in the long-term.
