Developing a Creative and Innovative Organisational Culture: Experiences from Continuous Embodied Creativity Training (free paper)

This study aims to explore the impact of continuous embodied creativity training on organisational creative and innovative culture in 5 Danish organisations. The study finds that trainees experience less resistance towards organisational change, stronger sense of community with colleagues, and a higher level of energy at work. The study also finds a hot-or-not attitude towards the training between trainees and non-trainees colleagues in the organisations. The paper presents examples of creativity training exercises used by the organisations and discusses the findings in relation to creative and innovative organisational culture. I co-authored this paper with Rune Osmundsen and Chaoying Tang. The paper was accepted and presented at the CICALICS conference in Beijing.
