How to Improve Your Creativity in Business

Creativity is an increasingly important aspect of improving business performance. Employers at some of the largest companies today put creativity high on the list of desired traits in their workers. Data from an IBM survey of 1500 Chief Executive Officers around the globe revealed that creativity mattered more than even management discipline, integrity, rigor and vision. Clearly, creativity matters in the business world today. 

Why Is Creativity Important?

In the past, creativity was something that was thought best left to certain “creative types.” Yet, today’s business environment demands more. Economic challenges, complexities of technology and changes in organizational structures create new hurdles that must be overcome. 

“Coming out of the worst economic downturn in our professional lifetimes -- and facing a new normal that is distinctly different -- it is remarkable that CEOs identify creativity as the number one leadership competency of the successful enterprise of the future,” said Frank Kern, senior vice president, IBM Global Business Services, in a press release about the survey results. “But step back and think about it, and this is entirely consistent with the other top finding in our Study -- that the biggest challenge facing enterprises from here on will be the accelerating complexity and the velocity of a world that is operating as a massively interconnected system.”

When and How to Refinance Your Mortgage

Many homeowners choose to refinance to lock in a fixed interest rate or reduce their monthly payment. However, a lower payment doesn’t always mean you’ll save money. Knowing the right time and process for refinancing goes a long way toward making a wise decision.

Refinancing Pros and Cons

There are several pros to refinancing.

-Lower interest rates can significantly reduce your monthly payment and the overall amount you pay.

-Shortening the length of your mortgage term increases your monthly payment, but saves you much more in the long run. However, be aware that you may do just as well by paying a little extra each month under your current terms.

Say Hello to Ello

A new social network is taking the world by storm. With invitation-only access, there has been a massive rush of invite requests of late. Completely ad free, Ello puts an emphasis on simplicity and design. Created by a small group of artists and designers, it was originally intended to be just a private network. As interest in the project grew, the creators decided to have a public version. Ello is attracting more and more users who are turned off by the tactics of other social networks. 

How Is Ello Different?

Ello is making a point of being different. It may be this difference that is driving people in droves to the social network. The company has a manifesto that details the purpose and ideology behind the product. It starts by pointing out what has become a reality – other social networks have become a platform for advertisers. “We believe a social network can be a tool for empowerment,” states the company manifesto. “Not a tool to deceive, coerce and manipulate — but a place to connect, create and celebrate life.”
