Developing Creativity and Innovation

Children have an innate creative ability when they are born, but for some reason adults can lose it along the way. Your participants will move out of the mundane, be more curious, engage, and explore new ideas. Recognize creativity and be ready when it happens.

With our Developing Creativity and Innovation course your participants will learn how to remove barriers that block or limit their creativity. They will improve their imagination, divergent thinking, and mental flexibility.

Participants will learn mind mapping, individual brainstorming, and when to recognize and look for what inspires them to be more creative.

At the end of this workshop, participants should be able to:

  • Define Creativity
  • Act with Confidence
  • Engage in Curiosity
  • Stop Acting out of Fear
  • Learn from Introspection
  • Take Risks
