Creativity is a vital skill for every individual. In fact it may be the last skill we humans give up to AI and automation. It facilitates problem solving, creates new ideas, improves organisations and changes the world. It’s the difference between leading the way and simply following.
As facilitators, our role is to help groups solve problems of one kind or another. As part of this process, we almost always seek the most diverse and unique set of ideas possible. Why? Because diversity, when skillfully facilitated, is an incubator for creativity
This fully interactive session focuses on providing the processes and techniques to enable facilitation of creative problem solving, pulling from schools of thought such as design thinking and human centric design.
We will take a specific challenge and work through solving it creatively it as a group.
Importantly, we bring effectiveness to the forefront. How can we ensure that when driving creativity we are also considering the needs of all stakeholders.
