The ability to think, and work, creatively is just as invaluable a skill in today's workplace as it ever has been. It can lead to the development of new products and services, new business process and strategy, and even lead to growth and increased revenues.
But it is a skill that needs to be consciously worked on. When practiced successfully, it can reveal effective and innovative solutions to various types of problems, from marketing communications to operational roadblocks, and it can generate new ideas.
In these videos, Cathal Melinn explores what creativity means in the tool box of a digital marketer, looking at communication, removing barriers to new ideas and routines, and the fear of failure.
About The Essential Skills Series
This series includes a number of videos that explore those personal skills that we tend to overlook but which are becoming ever more important in your marketing life. These include communication, creativity, persuasion, project management, collaboration, strategic thinking, and crisis management. An important study was done in 2019 by the Digital Marketing Institute in collaboration with The Economist Group, and the full white paper is available to read on the library. The survey of 500 global marketing executives revealed that the ongoing skills gap in digital marketing includes these key essential skills.
