Cre8ivity and productivity are not mutually exclusive...
@englebert ...there is a time and place for both qualities of a human being. Check Seth Godin's book "Linchpin", and you might welcome a broader perspective. Productivity trumps creativity most assuredly from the perspective of an employer. Creativity borne out of experience and followed by productivity is the model for entrepreneurs and the self-employed. In the end, like most skills and talents, the rule applies: use it or lose it. If you lose the ability to create, where will you be when your employer "frees you" from the constraints of employment?
