Sparking Your Creativity: Creative Thinking Skills that Work!
A Workshop for Developing New Thinking and New Results
The business world changes constantly. To lead our
industries, we must invest in our technical and service abilities. We must invest in our
creativity also. Without a commitment to increase technical and service abilities,
businesses die and the same is true if we do not increase our creative abilities.
Investments we make in our creativity today will provide returns in technology and service
that we cannot achieve otherwise.
Our future potential starts with the further development of
creative thinking attitudes, skills and knowledge. The Creative Thinking Skills Workshop
can make a significant difference in the ability of your personnel to think creatively.
Virtually anyone with a positive attitude can obtain knowledge and skills necessary for
successful creative thinking.
This course is a student-focused, skills-based workshop
covering multiple creative thinking processes. The student will become proficient at
developing creative alternatives in business, community, and personal situations. This
course uses a recursive design so that the student experiences both their own learning and
how to enhance the same learning in others.
Delivery methods used in this workshop include:
demonstrations, discussions, exercises, drills, group activities, and research projects
outside the classroom. Students will discover and exercise thinking abilities far beyond
those used by the average person. Each student will produce a personalized creative
thinking kit, and a post class networking resource list.
Upon completion of this class, in any business, community or
personal situation, the fully participating student can:
