Course description

Creative Thinking and Innovation

Would you like your employees to be more creative and innovative? They can be. When you apply creative thinking and innovation to every aspect of your business or organisation, you are able to have a sustainable competitive advantage and stay ahead of your competition.

This is a fast-paced, highly practical day with a very personal approach. Each delegate identifies their biggest workplace challenge and applies The Six-Step Creative Thinking Model to come up with the best solution for their identified challenge. Delegates use a range of simple, but very powerful creative and innovative techniques that can subsequently be used across all areas of their work.

The feedback from this one-day virtual course has been consistently outstanding.
