If you can’t find the optimal solution to an issue, create it. A few items I have created include a cloud demonstration system, automated solutions design adviser, adoption maturity framework, training and enablement programs, and new sales motions to capture diversity opportunities. Being a creator takes courage, there can be many successes and many delayed successes (failures). Collaborating and brainstorming with colleagues not only increases creativity but it also helps uncover potential in unseen options. There are a series of questions that should be asked to accelerate viable creative solutions to problems. There are also a series of concrete actions that can be taken to increase the likelihood a creative solution will succeed and to help you become better at generating creative ideas. Thought leaders who take action are creators.
