Creativity

The foundation for solving future complex business problems

In a Nutshell

What is Creativity really? Creativity is a connective ability. Used as a skill, creativity taps into our “inner” pool of natural resources like knowledge, insights, experience that we have accumulated over the years, and combines in novel ways to find answers. Creativity can be simply triggered because we all have it. How? With creativity tips and tools for example. And by being open, curious, ready to try out new thought patterns, and combining these intrinsic resources in new ways.

Duration? 1–2 days, online sessions are generally shorter (2–3 hours). Individual coaching too!

Remote? Yes! Your online training and creativity workshops can be easily conducted online. Let’s talk to each other! We’ll come up with answers.

For how many? Individuals and small teams of 7–12 people are ideal.

Why and what is the goal? In this creativity training, you will be familiarized with systematic methods and inspiring approaches to coming up with new ideas and answers that will help you solve your business challenges. On request, we can use creative tools to generate answers to your individual challenges and turn these ideas into an action plan. I work together with the bestseller authors from Denkmotor and employ techniques and material from their Creativity book.

Creativity as a catalyst for teamworkDiscover talents. Using strengths.

How can something new be created when habitual thinking, fear of making mistakes and deadlocked systems seem to block forward-thinking? Activate creative thinking! Creativity is a skill that when activated can be used to spark motivation and elicit openness, as well as curiosity, and a learning attitude. All necessary ingredients for innovation. And if the innovation process Design Thinking is considered something like the spiritual father or mother of all agile methods, then a creative approach to thinking itself provides the basic nutrient for successful innovation.

Creativity is an important catalyst for questioning existing patterns and breaking them down into new manageable pieces. The creative process when used for problem solving requires a disciplined alternation between rational and imaginative thinking, each is supported by different networks in the brain.

Using concrete practical examples and different kinds of creative techniques that cater to these different thinking patterns, participating teams are invited to switch off their inner autopilot and try out alternative ways of thinking, playing and acting. With a motivating mixture of background information and storytelling, participants' innovative ability, and flow are unleashed and can be used for complex problem-solving and fresh perspectives.
