The Creative Mindset

Simple methods to ignite and innovate ideas

Innovate

Course summary

Creativity has been described as innovation in action. It is a thinking skill which can be learned by anyone. While 80% of organisations acknowledge that creativity is vital for economic growth, only 25% of people believe they are using their creative potential. Creativity is all about seeing things differently, making connections and breaking away from established patterns. It’s not just about launching innovative new products and designs. It is also about identifying enhancements, improvements, modifications and revisions. On this short, high impact and interactive course you’ll boost your ability to think differently, to be inquisitive and to work more creatively together with others. You will discover how to seek alternatives, explore concepts and identify new possibilities.

The session provides tons of opportunities to apply proven practical tools and techniques so you can generate multiple solutions to a single problem, by looking beyond the first expedient answer. You will learn simple but effective idea generation methods that you will be able to use straight away. We include the latest research on how the mind works and reveal surprising ways to unleash your creative abilities. You will discover that ‘thinking inside the box’ can sometimes be helpful and learn how other creative organisations get the creative best out of their people. The ultimate creativity course for non-creative types.

"Before attending this session, I've always considered myself to be fairly uncreative. I no longer think that this is the case. Really worthwhile... packed with great ideas on how to see things differently. Thank you."
