Course Overview

Creativity is recognized as a critical success driver for organizations and individuals. While some consider it an innate talent that one may or may not have, modern thinking is that it is a skill that, given the right nurturing environment, can be developed and harnessed by anyone in any organization.

This course examines the conditions necessary to build such an environment. Using examples from the worlds of business, art, and science and with the practical application of tools such as brainstorming, mind mapping, and others, we give participants the instruments they need to transform their lives, environments, and workplaces. This course uses a mix of interactive techniques, including brief presentations by the consultant, self-awareness tests, exercises using newly learned creative techniques, games, lateral thinking exercises and puzzles, case studies, and video clips with extensive debriefs.
