Creative thinking and innovation are vital components in both our personal and professional lives. However, many people feel as though they are lacking in creativity. What most of us do not recognize is that we are creative on a daily basis, whether it’s picking out what clothes to wear in the morning or stretching a tight budget at work. While these tasks may not normally be associated with creativity, there is a great deal of creativity involved to get those jobs done.
While some people seem to be simply bursting with creativity, others find it a struggle to think outside the square. If you fall into the latter category, it is important to understand that boosting your creative and innovative abilities takes practice. Recognizing and honing your own creative potential is a process.
This public seminar on November 24 and 25, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. will help you do just that. Participants will identify the difference between creativity and innovation in business, recognize their own creativity, learn how to build a creative environment, apply problem-solving steps and tools, use individual and group techniques to help generate creative ideas, and practice implementation.
