Everywhere you turn, “Innovators” are synthesizing new solutions in what many are beginning to dub the “Creative Economy”. Learning how to think creatively and innovate is an essential skill for the 21st century. Most innovations and systemic changes begin with a creative idea or insight and a letting go of old mindsets and ways of thinking. Knowing how to think creatively and let go of old ways of thinking is key to generating the ideas and insights that give birth to innovation.
Studies show that creative thinking people are better able to live with uncertainty and systemic problems because they are typically more loosely identified with cultural norms and world views. As a result, they can adapt their thinking and see things differently to allow for the flow of the unknown. According to research reported in Scientific American, creative thinking, not intelligence or overall openness, decreases mortality risks and leads to a longer life.
This workshop is designed for those who would like to think more creatively, facilitate innovation with others in a way that facilitates the evolution of consciousness from ME to WE.
In this interactive 3-hour online workshop you will learn how to:
Discover and empower your deeper “I”-center of awareness and will- enabling you to step-back from old mindsets and think more outside the box.
Creatively self-organize your role as “Creator” - “Innovator”.
Think creatively – learn different ways to think creatively.
Facilitate creative thinking in others.
Understand the core systemic dynamics of innovation and where to look for opportunities.
Facilitate creative thinking and innovation with others through role-playing.
Create value propositions to advance your creative ideas.
Foster a creative climate.
