"In all creative processes we are pushing the boundaries of what we know now, to explore new possibilities; we are drawing on the skills we have now, often stretching and evolving them as work demands" (Robinson, 2011, p. 152).
“Today as we shift from the Technological Age to the Conceptual Age, creativity, innovation, and inquiry will soon be everyone’s concern. Not only does change remain a constant in our lives, but the rate of change is increasing because of technology and the growing global society. To succeed in a society of constant change and flux there are several options, including speeding up your rate of change to surpass the rate of societal change or alternatively being creative, innovative, and questioning. I think you will agree the more feasible of the two options is to be inquiring, creative, and innovative.”
“At every level in every organization, there are systems to question, opportunities to become and innovative thinker, and chances to uncover creative approaches that are simple, but powerful.”

Creative employers are more likely to encourage naps in the workplace in order to boost brain activity and encourage creative thinking that leads to innovation. Hallowell (2011) states, "A 2009 article in Harvard Business Review pointed out that time off and downtime can enhance mental acuity, bust boosting productivity. And Robert Stickgold, a sleep expert at Harvard, calls a nap at work, "the simplest way to reboot your brain" (p. 31).
