How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Every employee brings a level of passion with them to work, a willingness to take on a certain level of risk. We talk weekly about our values, our failures, and victories, making it perfectly okay to fail, but to make those failures learning experiences so that we can continue to improve and focus on (ninja style) execution.
