Another factor potentially inhibiting creativity is the attitude that each participant brings to the training environment. If your participants arrive excited about their impending learning opportunity, they are more likely to become actively involved. On the other hand, if participants are forced to attend training, or have not been adequately briefed on expected outcomes or how they will benefit from the training, their perspective of the training may be grim. For participants to embrace training, they have to see the value in terms of personal gain (e.g., how it will help them do their job in a more effective and efficient manner). They must also believe that their supervisor and organization support the training initiative and will allow them to apply what is learned and reward appropriately as a result of improved performance. These things failing, participant attitude will likely be poor and there will be creativity disconnect.
