Why creativity takes courage

Creativity is widely regarded as an important skill and asset in our learning environments and workplaces, yet we are not always supported in developing it. As Yale psychologist Zorana Ivcevic Pringle writes, recent research shows that in these settings, it can take significant courage to show our creativity, rather than sticking with what is more conventional or expected. We can encourage innovation and creativity by reducing the need to be courageous and foster environments in which stakeholders—whether they be students, staff, or parents—are respected and have a voice.
