Now more than ever all organizations and individuals need skills of innovation—the ability to flexibly embrace change in order to improve what's now and create what's next. Creativity is the engine of innovation, and this workshop will identify and apply the key creativity principles, competencies and processes that all facilitators should know to foster innovation in any group. This will be a full-engagement workshop, as participants will get to experience creativity for themselves—both through individual and collaborative creative exercises and multiple-intelligence challenges, and through learning and participating in a creative problem solving process that can be used with any group needing innovative solutions.

Participants will:

  • Identify the key definitions, principles and competencies of creativity and innovation, and integrate them into live learning.
  • Explore the universal creative problem solving process and design thinking by taking on a group brainstorming challenge.
  • Experience interactive ice-breakers, exercises and multiple-intelligence challenges that foster creative thinking and innovative solutions in any group.
