    @michael I was looking ahead at the video called “Can You Teach Creativity?” I agree with Mr. Chris Paley. Fear stops so many of us from being creative. We don’t want other s to think poorly of us. Or we are afraid of getting a negative job review or an judgmental stare or comment from a coworker or our supervisor at work. We will squash any new ideas for the library because of fear. Also a toxic workplace culture can inhibit creativity. If you are in a library environment where your supervisor or coworker might be insecure and jealous of your new idea, they might try to discourage you or ruin your idea. Or possibly you do not want to step on anyone’s toes because you are unsure if your new idea is invading the “work territory” of a coworker. I think it is important when you are in a new environment to evaluate the workplace culture. Then carefully decide if it is the right time and the right place to introduce a new idea. That is my approach especially because I did recently obtain a new library job. I am grateful to be in a supportive workplace. However, idea timing is extremely important!! Your idea might be great, but the timing could be bad to introduce the idea. You might have to wait until the opportune time and open minded people to show a new idea. I think being fearless but wise at the same time is important in bringing new ideas to our respective library workplaces.

    @auroralily0 This is good advice:

    “I think it is important when you are in a new environment to evaluate the workplace culture. Then carefully decide if it is the right time and the right place to introduce a new idea. ”

    It does so depend on timing and the work culture climate!
