I’ve had a whole lot of insights today.  I’ve been thinking about issues relating to problem solving, creativity and artistry and in your talk it all came together for me.  I’m walking away with such a clear picture.  Thank you very much.

 Before the course I didn’t consider myself creative, but having thought about it more now, I have realised that there are areas in my life where I am creative.  The good news is that I can actually work on my creativity and improve it.  I think that’s an exciting thing to try.  I can now see many areas where I can get more creative and apply the tools.

What stood out for me was the connection between cool, arty kinds of things and creative thinking in terms of business.  I’m going to carry my creative toolbag around like a flag at work and really own my creative space.

The course has made me want to use my creativity in spaces and situations that I thought I wouldn’t be able to.  I’ve found more links between different areas of my life to increase creativity.

As a business owner, in an industry that is quite well established, I think that we have to be creative otherwise we are going to fall behind. There is a responsibility on me to innovate with my team. My team had some great aha moments on the workshop. We quite quickly found proper tangible ways to implement the tools. We’ve found definite ways of using what we’ve discovered today in our business to improve it.

Today tickled a part of me that I haven’t acknowledged for a long time. We can all get bogged down. There’s this bit of play that I think I’ve been neglecting. I feel that I want to go and skip around the room after today.

Two weeks after the workshop, I have been applying the creativity tools at work, especially using different thinking. I’ve been approaching things more from a creative perspective than the normal numbers perspective. I’ve been looking at new markets and how we can penetrate them. I’ve also been using a number of tools in my personal life to great effect. I learned that creativity is open to everyone in so many different forms. You can awaken your creativity through amazing tools that I didn’t even know existed. I think that’s awesome.

I’ve have the rude awakening that I have quite a bit to work on in term of my creative thinking. The exercises on speed and fluency made me realise that sometimes at work I get caught in too much detail instead of looking at the big picture.
