Corporate EducationCreative Problem Solving

Approaching problem solving can sometimes require a creative solution. But how do you handle or implement it? Is creativity a skill, and can you learn it? Can you have creativity preferences?

In this one-day workshop, you’ll learn how to identify problems that need creativity in their solutions, apply problem-solving frameworks that support new perspectives and innovative thinking, and formulate action steps to overcome obstacles and meet goals. 

The tools and techniques used in the program have been developed and refined through extensive research and have been applied in real-world business challenges for decades.
