From Laughter in Business to Exploiting Chaos

By: Jaime Neely - May 29, 2014
Establishing creative work environments is something almost every boss strives for in a workplace setting. These speeches offer strategies for fostering and building work cultures of creativity and innovation. While some of the methods relate to physical aspects of an office, others are rooted exclusively in behavior and employee relations.

Innovation keynote speaker Jeremy Gutsche argues that the most creative and innovative work cultures will not only tolerate failure -- they will embrace and welcome it. He believes creative work environments need to be open to experimentation and unconventional ideas.

Andy Burnett believes that the physical layout of an office can have a tremendous impact on the creativity levels of a team. He suggests office designs that step away from the traditional cubicle style. He prefers open spaces, private pods and even nap rooms as the most fertile layouts for problem-solving.

Eric Tsytsylin believes that an office that laughs together will innovate together. While many pinpoint laughter as the culprit for wasted time and loss work, Eric suggests that it actually relaxes employees and helps clear their minds better before focusing on a task.

There is no concrete formula for developing creative work environments, but a combination of these tips is sure to get the creative juices flowing.
