This chapter makes some important distinctions among the concepts of work environment, organizational culture, and climate. It presents a comprehensive model to help outline how leaders can shape a work environment that supports creativity and innovation. Nine dimensions of the climate for creativity that leaders can affect directly are defined, and research that illustrates how each influences climate and creative performance is summarized. Illustrative behavioral suggestions for leaders are provided for each dimension. Twelve other organizational factors that leaders can affect indirectly are also defined and reviewed. A few illustrative actions are provided that leaders can take to influence each of these factors. The chapter closes with six high-level suggestions for how leaders might apply these suggestions.
