IEDP: From shame to creativity

Research co-authored by Dr Andreas Richter, University Lecturer in Organisational Behaviour at Cambridge Judge Business School, concludes that employees can help channel workplace shame into creativity if the situation is handled skillfully and sensitively. “People naturally want to overcome their workplace shame by demonstrating their value to the organisation, and one way of doing this is to show creativity. “The study finds that managers can facilitate this by providing an appropriate environment,” Andreas said.
