"I have a policy with my team that if they have an innovative and helpful idea they can bring it to me at any time. If their idea or system is something that I think could work, we then create a plan together to present it to our head office. This policy has generated some really strong ideas in our office over the past 3 years including a work-share program and some health and safety initiatives."
"I think it is important to discuss work with colleagues in a collaborative nature to encourage all types of ideas to come forth. Often times, when people put their heads together, they will create something better than something one individual could have done alone."
"I communicate with my coworkers, subordinates, and supervisor daily. We many not always think up new ideas, but we often discuss "what-if" scenarios."
Do you use your creative mind with your colleagues in order to discuss ideas and systems in the workplace? Talk to the interviewer about how you have used creative thinking in the workplace.

"I like to encourage other people to be creative in their thinking and present ideas to the company, no matter how off the wall they may seem. Some of our most successful employees are ones who are confident in their ability to bring forward their unique ideas. I encourage participation through an open door policy and strong praise for those who show initiative."
"I encourage people to tap into the best parts of themselves. It helps to ask probing questions to get them to generate ideas on their own. I have found that by painting a long term vision for where I want to go, my team will often jump in with creative solutions to get us there."
"I try to leave crumbs of knowledge around. It is a great way to spark conversations and get people thinking."
Encouragement to others is a great skill to possess. Talk to the interviewer about your ability to encourage creative ideas in your team members.
