Innovative Thinking: Why It Is a Tactic and Not a Strategy

Encouraging employees to think differently is a tactic to promote creativity and innovation in business and leadership.
REMOTO WORKFORCE Team I Updated on - April 16, 2022

According to business and human resources specialists, employees and people are the precious treasure of any company. Hence, organizations must invest in making their employees comfortable through specific initiatives, such as onboarding.

Additionally, businesses can inspire their employees to think differently to promote creativity and motivation in 2022. However, is this a tactic or a strategy in human resource management? While strategies are conceived as long-term efforts, tactics are activities you can develop to attain goals.

In this blog post, Remoto Workforce will explain how to encourage your employees to develop their innovative thinking and help build inclusive, diverse, and remote leadership and workplaces.


Why Innovative Thinking Can Lead to Significant Leadership?

Undoubtedly, innovative thinking is a trait that defines leadership. Murray Newlands explains that leaders who create value for businesses are often trained to think about core issues through alternative means. As a result, Newlands describes ten ways in which industry leaders unfold innovative thinking. We recap some of these ways for your information:

Leaders execute with a goal in mind: Leaders can execute everything with clear objectives in mind. Hence, leaders manage to become attentive listeners and mentors, offer constructive feedback, and build diverse and motivated teams.

They stay on strategy: leaders always follow a strategy to achieve goals. Also, within strategies, leaders include tactics to motivate people to think differently.

Leaders know that perfection does not exist: There is no perfection but excellence in work and results.

They focus on the how, not the what: Leaders always beat perfectionism and enjoy the lessons derived from the process, not the goal itself.

Generally, leaders understand that perfectionism is vice and an obstacle to success that results from unrealistic expectations and traumas. Consequently, they always celebrate the tasks done and improve their self-worth.

Leaders always ask the right questions: It is expected that leaders in business talk with other co-workers and employees, pose questions, and request feedback.

In this TED talk video, J. Rod Franklin teaches about the benefits of innovative thinking and how this tactic may allow you to create a better future.


Why Innovative Thinking Differently is Essential in Workplaces?

You can encourage your remote workforce to develop innovative thinking for fostering creativity and problem-solving skills. Likewise, you want to include tactics to promote thinking differently in your HR management plan and get advice from an HR specialist.

Moreover, Brazen Life explains five creative ways to think differently at work that we share with you:

Devour books: encourage employees to read voraciously to feed their minds. Then, they can propose amazing ideas to grow your business.

Observe the great: pay attention to how your employees work to contemplate the process behind producing excellent ideas.

Break out the bubble: foster interdisciplinary knowledge and approaches to issues in your market niche.

Question life and the universe itself: make your employees question how their lives are going and how your company can help them achieve the successful career of their dreams.

Daily creativity challenge: propose a creativity challenge every day to promote innovation and boost excellence in your workspace.
