Thinking Creatively: Work Smart, Take Risks, Embrace Possibility

Creativity is or is related to 9 of the top 10 skills that global executives say are essential for the future, according to World Economic Forum.

You can speak possibility and embrace creativity from any position, in any job, with any group of employees. This kind of growth mindset increases an organization’s resources immeasurably in terms of energy, flexibility and speed of response to a fast-paced world.

Whether you are starting an initiative for women in leadership, getting the team together for a day of bonding and professional development, or want to encourage your company’s creativity with a series of Lunch & Learns…

This popular session explores the truth about creativity–that it’s not a mysterious occurrence in the DNA of a select few, but a ready tool that enables anyone to look at the ordinary and see the extraordinary. You’ll utilize creative catalysts that include the student sketches of Vincent van Gogh and the inspiring thoughts of great minds from varied cultures and centuries. You will be inspired to rethink the possibility of creativity in the unique circumstances of your own work…and strategically encourage more creative thinking, overcome the fear of putting oneself out there, and open the door wide to possibility.

This session is NOT a pep talk! It provides practical strategies, engaging activities, discussion, helpful tips, and quiet. It’s an unforgettable experience.

Key learning points include:

  • Creativity is a matter of perspective
  • Characteristics of creative people and practical ways to develop these in yourself and others
  • Lead meetings and make decisions creatively
  • There’s always more than one right answer
  • Reframe problems into opportunities
