The best example I can think of his a sprint week where a cross-collaborative team works together over a longer, intensive spurt — a full week, for example. During the sprint week, that team is tackling an abstract problem and identifying new problems, questions, and ways of thinking together. The emphasis on asking questions without having a solution in mind or answer first fosters curiosity. Cross-collaboration, open-mindedness, and a focus on arriving at ideas together forces better communication. Finally, the process itself is entirely about creativity and thinking differently, so if facilitated well, should foster a more creative environment.
