Have you ever watched television to find creative ideas, business marketing concepts or even leadership lessons for your business? It's easy to get into the habit of using your television time to increase your business ideas. For instance, many people walk out when the commercials come on. But if you're looking for marketing ideas, commercials are free idea generators for your business. Watching commercials is a way to get ideas on how to promote your business. See if the advertisement makes sense, appeals to a targeted audience and effectively sells a product.

The ideas in some television shows can give you new ideas too. When Donald Trump decided to become a television star, my curiosity was peaked. Even though I don't watch a lot of television, it struck me that anyone who can take a failed business and bring it back to billionaire status certainly would be of interest to a person interested in business or leadership. And becoming a television star was just evidence of the risk taking ability of this brilliant, billionaire businessman.

Even though the television show about having a billionaire businessman do a 13-week job interview for an apprentice is just another reality show hit, you can find leadership lessons each week if you look hard enough. Some leadership lessons are found while the contestants pursue their projects. Many more can be learned through the interactions in the Boardroom Scenes at the end.

Here are 10 points that you could learn from this reality show on leadership. See if you identify any of these in your workplace.

Think fast
Be creative
Provide feasible suggestions
Don't bad-mouth your team
Be a decisive leader
Make a decision and move on
Conduct yourself with dignity at all times
Be positive
Think up alternatives/Have a Plan B
Never forget the budget

Use your instincts and training to view current events and even television shows with an eye to learn how to be a better, more creative leader in business. You can always challenge yourself to think better, faster, and smarter by seeing how new concepts and imaginative ideas can be applied to your business. You will see your creative thinking being refreshed and become a better leader in the meantime.
