Creativity and Innovation do not come easily. By their very nature they fly in the face of business-as-usual.
Today's climate is changing everywhere. Successfully managing an enterprise challenges even the best of business leaders.
Change puts most people outside their comfort zone. They become uneasy, and perform at a level that does not meet the needs of your business today...and definitely not tomorrow.
Every business leader wants a highly motivated team with world class creative and critical thinking skills, informed risk-taking ability, seamless teamwork and lighting speed communications capability. A team that has the perfect mix of street savvy and mental agility, and can react quickly and decisively to any business challenge.
Creating a climate that embraces change can elevate you above your competition and spur your organization to new levels of innovation.
"It's not Business as Usual Anymore!"is a one-day corporate training workshop for developing creative thinking skills. The course is built on a mix of sound research and practical content. Each workshop is hands-on and minds-on, engaging participants in fun and relevant situations that are immediately transferable to the workplace.
The workshop delivers four critical outcomes:
Bringing to focus every attendee's awareness of the critical importance of innovation in the future of the organization
Teaching creative and critical thinking tools, techniques and best practices that will help improve problem solving and meeting productivity
Teaching skills, to help individuals adapt and adjust to new or changing circumstances
Providing a practical, fun and invigorating day of training that has lasting impact!
During the "It's not Business as Usual Anymore!" workshop participants will:
Take an 'introspective' look at their problem solving 'style' preferences using the VIEW assessment tool, which helps them better understand their strengths and weaknesses when it comes to being innovative.
Be engaged in an exploration of ways to dramatically improve their problem solving/innovation team mix and chemistry...with proven results.
Expand their problem solving 'toolkit'. from classic brainstorming, to a suite of 10 'powerful' generating and focusing tools, each using hands-on, contemporary case studies to show how quickly they can be applied to the workplace.
Tackle a number of 'Instant Challenges'. short 'vignette' problems that require creativity, teamwork, and the ability to 'think-on-tour feet'...and all with important business/life lessons.
The Workshop includes VIEW: An Assess Assessment of Problem Solving Style.
