3 day Level I & II Using and Leading Applied Creativity workshop

Workshop for January 30 - February 1, 2018 (Tuesday - Thursday)

You've heard it all before. The world is changing. Nothing stays the same. Change is the only constant. One thing does stay the same. Solving complex problems and creating fresh opportunities for growth in a changing world begins with creative thinking.

Why the Simplexity Thinking System?

  • Our future as organizations, teams and individuals depends on our ability to view the tasks before us from a different perspective, to question old habits and ways, and to have the courage to propose and implement innovative solutions. To sustain real economic and personal growth, we must now approach innovation and problem solving in our organizations with increased creativity and foresight.
  • The Simplexity Thinking System is the "innovation engine" of the organization. It interconnects a process of creative problem solving with skills and tools to make that process work. The system is simple, experiential, inclusive … and is proven to work.
  • Learn the key thinking skills that drive creativity and innovation
  • Assess your personal innovation style and investigate ways it can be enhanced through application of Simplexity Thinking.
  • Learn how to be an effective facilitator, team leader and participant in a meeting.
  • Learn to design effective meetings resulting in shared ownership and well- defined implementation plans.
  • Improve the way your organization utilizes teams.
  • Learn to move a team from "storming" to "high performing".
