Topic Description: Creative and Innovative Thinking
The term ‘innovation’ means a new way of doing something — having the ability to look at something old or current and see something new or different. To succeed in today’s economic conditions, truly successful CEOs didn’t fall back on traditional management discipline, existing best practices, or status quo operations. They dug deeper, wider, and exploded with out of the box critical thinking skills to survive and thrive. In fact, according to a new IBM study, creativity and innovation is now the most important leadership quality for success in business over the next five years.
This Innovation workshop teaches participants to apply innovation techniques to achieve breakthrough results. Armed with new techniques and strategies, participants become stronger role models as creative agents, and entrepreneurs among others to ultimately provide a competitive edge for your organization. The workshop incorporates a high level of interactivity, practical learning, self-assessment, exercises, skill practice, case studies and action planning in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.
