More about Creativity & Innovation

How to encourage your team’s creativity?

Creativity CoursesCourses in creativity & innovation will help you create an environment and thinking framework that allows and encourages a more innovative business unit. By training in this field, you will help setup your team to be a more dynamic, pro-active, creative and innovative unit.

Innovation can’t be turned on and off at will, however, an environment that encourages positive feedback, trial and error, problem solving and creative thinking will go a long way to harnessing and developing your team’s innovative abilities.

Encouraging diversity of thought and personnel can help challenge teams to confront new ideas and ways of working. However, the appropriate care must be taken when doing so, understanding the benefits and challenges that may arise.

Creativity & Innovation course delivery methods

Creativity & Innovation training can come in a vast range of formats to suit you and your organisation.

After you have found a course that meets your needs, ask the course provider for more information about their course teaching methods. For instance, innovation coaches and trainers can come to your office (in-house training), you can attend an open course with delegates from other companies or you can take an online/distance course.

Points to consider regarding your creativity & innovation course are:

  • Where will the course be held? In-company, in the student's home, at one of the course providers’ locations, or online?
  • How will the course be run?
  • Can the course accommodate your specific industry?
  • Will the expected finishing level of the course match your requirements?
  • What qualifications does your course teacher have?
  • What experience does your teacher have in your professional area?
  • What opportunities for organised social interaction for continued learning are provided?

What is personal development?

Develop career & thinkingPersonal development is the process of self-development and also the development of others. At the level of the individual, personal development includes goals, plans or actions oriented towards one or more of the following aims:

  • improved time management
  • improved stress management
  • improved personal efficiency
  • improved confidence
  • improved assertiveness
  • improved creativity
  • improved understanding of career change
  • fulfilling aspirations

Any sort of development requires a framework to establish whether change has actually occurred or not. In the case of personal development, individuals often function as their own primary judge of improvement.

Validation of objective improvement, however, requires assessment using standard criteria. Such framework for personal development may include goals or benchmarks that define the end-points, strategies or plans for reaching goals and a feedback system to provide information on changes.

With so much emphasis on the professional element of development, it's important to remember that training in more personal aspects of development, also sometimes called soft-skills, will also help businesses be more effective if their employees are as efficient and happy as they can be.

Improving Personal Effectiveness

Improving Personal EffectivenessPersonal effectiveness is a combination of factors that impact each other. Personal Development incorporates many aspects of people's professional lives, and aims to make them better. Personal effectiveness courses are usually designed to develop key skills and techniques needed to build personal impact, influence and effectiveness in dealings with themselves, their workloads and with others. Personal effectiveness courses seek to address the following objectives:

  • Analyse current effectiveness in terms of time and priority management
  • Recognise factors that contribute towards building personal profile and impact
  • Develop personal action plans to enhance personal effectiveness at work
  • Identify appropriate situations and techniques for assertive communication
  • Improve ability to deal with “difficult” people and conflict situations
  • Evaluate the most appropriate influencing styles to achieve positive results

The opportunities personal development can present

The most common elements of personal development training relate to becoming more efficient and effective with time and priorities. Personal development courses can help people learn to “say no”, can help improve expectation management or help control emotions.

Personal Development courses also help people build their confidence and enable them to deal with “difficult” people in awkward situations. Gaining an understanding of ways to persuade and influence others in order to achieve results is often one of the main aims of Personal Development training.

Personal Development can also help those who wish to raise their own personal profile and impact. Personal Development is a broad and complex topic, often referred to in some instances as “self-help”.

Confidence Building Training

One of the keys to improving self-confidence is understanding and learning how to maintain a positive outlook in situations where the consequences may be both bad and good, then also managing to overcome and move on effectively.

Improving confidence involves believing that you can achieve your goals and aims, without worrying too much about the overall outcome. By believing your ability to succeed, you become more assured of yourself and better able support others.

Confidence building training will reduce the worry you feel about issues at work, enable a better focus towards achievable/attainable results and then to successfully achieve your goals. Improving confidence will ultimately make you happier in both business and personal life.

Confidence building courses often identify the best approach to use when voicing ideas and opinions to colleagues and especially senior managers, and typically cover the following topics:

  • Moving from negative to positive ways of thinking (building self-esteem)
  • Are you saying “yes” when you should be saying “no” or vice-versa?
  • The art of persuasion
  • Understanding how self-esteem affects confidence and influences behaviour – using assertive language
  • Identifying ways of building self-esteem and developing confidence

Confidence building courses

Stress Management Courses

Stress Management CoursesTake charge in order to help manage stress. Take control of your emotions, your schedule, your environment, and the way you deal with problems.

Successful stress management begins with identifying the sources of stress in your life and learning how to recognise the signs of oncoming stress. While stress’ true sources aren’t always obvious and you can easily overlook your own stress, it is often the case that business professionals become stressed due to procrastination, rather than the actual job demands. Procrastination can then often lead to deadline stress.

Stress management courses enable participants to understand and state what their stress at work is, to identify potential sources of pressure and to find out what generates stress levels. Stress management training also enables delegates to understand the link between time pressures and stress, as well as the relationship between workload and stress, and to identify strategies for gaining and maintaining a balanced workload.
