We value creativity

To make—and keep—creativity a priority, we need to:

  • Stay playful;
  • Provide an enthusiastic, uncritical welcome to a variety of thinkers;
  • Separate ideation from critique, selection and refining of ideas;
  • Build iteration into our processes; and,
  • Preserve safe spaces and times for promiscuous ideation.

Overlappers are fluently creative, which makes us flexible, innovative, resilient and darned useful.

P.S. Creativity doesn’t give us license to be jerks.
