Stress, Creativity and Productivity
Imagine if everyone on the team was able to come up with creative ideas and solutions on a regular basis. Imagine if this thing called ‘stress’ was not invasive and permanent, but something people had tools to turn down or turn off when they needed to. And imagine if everyone on the team was even more productive.
What would that mean to an organisation?
The reality is that STRESS is not only a physical and mental health burden. Something that becomes noticeable when people start getting sick or taking days off. In fact most GP doctors visits, and the symptoms they show up with, are related to stress.
Now imagine if stress was not only causing physical and mental health issues but was actually stopping workers with coming up with innovative solutions to problems, creative ideas for new products, or improvements to current products and services. What is the cost of that?
In todays information age and rapidly changing business world, the companies that survive and thrive are the ones that keep creating and innovating better ways to solve customer ‘problems or challenges’ or provide them with the goods or services to improve the quality of their lives. Creativity and Innovation is a game changer and essential to on-going business success.
What is just one good idea worth?
With the advancements of neuroscience in the last 15 years, the understanding of what is happening, and not happening, inside our minds is becoming clearer and clearer.
With this new knowledge we now can better understand what to do and not do to increase the effectiveness of our brains, at a conscious and subconscious level.
The Kaizan Way
In Japan, after World War II, there was a nation wide initiative to rebuild Japan into something bigger and better than it was before the war.
One of the philosophies they adopted was constant and never ending improvement. They realised that minor improvements made, over an extended period of time, lead to major changes in the results they could achieve. It was internal creative ideas that contributed to most of the innovative changes they made within their companies.
It is not just about tapping into the staff’s mental powers, but supercharging them.
