Creative structure of the mind can diagnose the internal problems affecting the organization and offer solutions regarding building a better organizational culture, comprehensive, integrated communication system, and an elaborate reward system. According to Cook 2018, lack of better organizational culture has created discomfort between employees, supervisors and the management. A new organizational culture would improve the relations between the employees. They would start to work as a team as opposed to rivals aiming to get individual awards. To achieve such, a creative mindset from a leader would incorporate team building through workshops, and seminars. Once there is a well-established culture, the management would be able to supervise employees easily through the supervisors.
Anderson and Adams 2016 advance that an integrated communication system is useful to enhance communication between employees and their leaders and with the prospective consumers. Creative structure of mind would develop a communication system that is a top-down and down-top approach. Such an approach would allow the junior employees to pass their complaints, compliments, and suggestions to the management. Conversely, the creative structure of the mind, having established a good communication system and organizational culture that is progressive, would incorporate a progressive reward system. Unlike the reactive structure of the mind which was awarding employees to compensate on systems’ failures to appreciate employees, a creative mind structure would strive to appreciate employees before rewarding their inputs. Reward system would include recognition of hard work by employees. Thank you notes, featuring on a magazine and paid leave or trips would be more significant. Good pay, medical insurance, tuition fees and mentoring employees for succession at the firm makes employees feel more valuable.
