Startups are by nature, a creative endeavor. They are a founder's creative solution to a problem they have found in the marketplace. So when I talked to leaders who are struggling with keeping creativity part of their worldview and their workplace culture, what I do is help them see how creativity is already part of what they do and help them make adjustments to their day-to-day practice, so that that mindset can be cultivated amongst their teams.

Absolutely. Creativity is not art. Art is the result of creativity combined with craft and craft is a skill that you can develop over thousands of hours of practice. Art is a result.
But creativity is a practice and creativity can express itself in art. But creativity can express itself in any aspect of life. You can be creative in how you manage a team or design a system or a process.
