For this Discussion, you will consider your own creative thinking styles and how they differ from others in your current (or a past) workplace environment. Consider how different creative thinking styles can potentially create conflict among teams. You can review the five personality traits that were covered in a previous course by referring to the Digman article in the Optional Resources this week.

With these thoughts in mind, review this week’s reading paying particular attention to:

· Weis, D. (2018, June 21). Giving employees permission to fail is a formula for innovation at 3M. Retrieved January 30, 2019, from https://www.aem.org/news/giving-employees-permission-to-fail-is-a-formula-for-innovation-at-3m/

· Grivas, C., & Puccio, G. J. (2012). The innovative team: Unleashing creative potential for breakthrough results. San Francisco: Jossey-Bass.

· Part 1

· Prichard, S. (n.d.) What creative style are you? Retrieved October 5, 2013, from http://www.skipprichard.com/which-creative-style-are-you/

Post a cohesive analysis using the scenario presented in this week’s media piece, Creative Teams and Creative Conflicts, in which a team is unable to make progress on a project. In your post, incorporate the following:

· Three suggested ways that their process could be improved, despite their different styles.

· An explanation of how you would approach the scenario differently and lead the group towards success if you were asked to lead the team.

· A description of how you would implement the three ways you identified above to help the group improve.

· Finally, include an explanation of how you could use the strategies described in this week’s chapter from Creative leadership: Skills that drive change to accommodate the diversity of thinking styles to lead the group in a unified direction.
