Special talents want to innovate and be given room for creativity. But you also need to balance that with execution. Having a program or workshop to teach your teams how to allow both execution and creativity to coexist and actually complement each other will make creative people want to work for you. Creative people not only want to create and innovate but they also want to see their creation brought to fruition. Teaching both resource managers and visionary architect to work together effectively can go a long way.
