The Creativity Course:  Essential Skills to Drive Innovation

 

Innovate or fall behind.  The competitive imperative for virtually all businesses today is that simple. 

Responding to that command is difficult, however, because innovation takes place when different ideas, perceptions, and ways of processing and judging information collide. And it often requires collaboration among players who see the world differently.

As a result, conflict that should take place constructively among ideas all too often ends up taking place unproductively among people.  Disputes become personal, the creative process breaks down.

The material in this presentation is appropriate for those who have never thought of themselves as “creative,” as well as for those who are considered innovative thinkers.  It will help foster an organization that thinks and acts with more creativity; collaborates more effectively; and implements new ideas more rigorously.
