Most of us have at least heard of Tai Chi and that it is considered to be the gentlest form of martial art. Many of us have even heard how Tai Chi inspires creativity. That said those who regularly practice this ancient skill learn to relax and become stress free. You may even know that regular practice can lead to faster recovery times from illnesses and in many cases an overall reduction in employee absenteeism. All of this is very true and yet no one seems to have considered how much Tai Chi classes can benefit a person’s creativity.
How Tai Chi inspires creativity
We assume that the creativity our employees rely on in their everyday job is a natural ability that is as much a part of their lives as breathing. To some extent this may be true, but as you will have noticed even your most creative employees have periods where their abilities seem to be off or in some cases completely blocked. No matter how talented a person is, there are going to be times when they simply cannot focus on the task at hand.

In the corporate world the statement “Think outside of the box” has been around for a long time and has many connotations. To most of us it means that we need to look beyond the way things have always been done. It can also mean to tackle the problem from a different angle and when you have people on your staff who seem to have lost the creative edge you have come to count on, you are going to have to step outside of your “comfort zone” in search of the help you need and Tai Chi may be the perfect way to help your employees.
Tai Chi classes teach your employees to relax and let go of everything that is cluttering up their minds, their body’s and their emotions. Once they have learned to do this, their minds will once again be open to permitting the creative juices to flow. This in turn will allow them to aspire to new heights as the possibilities become endless when each employee is working to his or her potential.
