What is a creative environment?
A creative environment is one where people feel comfortable in expressing their ideas and where constructive support is given in the development and analysis of those ideas.

You are in a creative environment when
  • Your ideas are listened to and investigated before being judged.
  • You feel appreciated when you suggest new ideas.
  • You can suggest solutions to other groups without feeling like you are intruding.
  • Your manager spends time with you and explains the reasons and politics behind projects.
  • You are given the freedom to do your work in your own way.
  • You are not observed or judged all the time.
  • You do not have to pass all of your messages through your manager.
  • Experimental methods are encouraged.
  • You feel comfortable talking with anyone in your organization (top managers included).
  • You feel comfortable talking to your subordinates without having to order them about.
  • There is someone that will listen to your ideas.
  • The generation of good ideas is rewarded, verbally or otherwise.
  • You are treated with respect and as someone who can contribute to the organization.
  • You are appreciated for what you do.
  • You are appreciated for who you are.
