A Mindful Approach to Team Creativity and Collaboration:
Creating a Culture of Innovation
This book explores how mindfulness and contemplative arts practices can help to foster team creativity and collaboration in organizational settings. Such a mindful approach to creativity offers new possibilities for facilitating organizational creativity and innovation. The book describes a model for team creativity and collaboration that emerged from my research into the perceived effects of a mindfulness and contemplative arts workshop process on team creativity and collaboration. The model includes five elements: (1) Individual-Level Mindfulness (2) Trust and Authentic Communication; (3) Team Cohesion and Collaboration (4) Creative Ideation and Insights; and (5) Leadership: Creating a Culture of Innovation. Combining theory and practice, the book also presents a series of mindfulness and contemplative arts exercises to accompany the five levels of the model. This book is a useful resource for students, coaches, consultants, facilitators, and organizational leaders seeking to understand and foster creativity and collaboration in teams and organizations.
