Leadership for Creative Teamwork

Meeet-Mitte, Tuesday, 24th of  April 2018, 6:30 PM

What is the magic behind creative teamwork?

And what can you do as a leader to unleash your team’s creative potential, to come up with more and better ideas how to innovate your products and services?

If you ask yourself these questions, this meetup might be the right one for you!

Join us to learn some new leadership skills specific to a creative environment: in this edition of our meetup we will will explore in a workshop session with some fun exercises how to lead your team to full-on unleash their creative confidence.

David and Tom Kelly from IDEO came up with the idea of “Creative Confidence” as a prerequisite of creative teamwork.

They learned that their job isn’t to teach their students and clients creativity. It’s to help them rediscover their natural ability to come up with new ideas and the courage to try them out.

There are four fears that stop people to be confident about their creative powers:

  • The fear of the messy unknown,
  • the fear of being judged,
  • the fear of the first step, and
  • the fear of losing control.


In the meetup, you will experience some team exercises that will help you and your team to overcome these fears. Expect to learn some tips and tricks how to guide a creative process, and how to shift your team’s Creative Confidence.
