In a world where innovation is essential, creativity is your strategic advantage.
Our passion is to help businesses and individuals to become more resilient and better able to cope in these fast changing times by developing their creative thinking. Our courses help people to advance their businesses, serve their communities, develop creative confidence and solve complex problems.
Creativity is becoming an increasingly necessary and sought-after skill. Our perception of creativity has for too long been relegated to artists only, and many children and students have been steered away from developing their creativity in favour of more ‘logical’, ‘practical’ and ‘scientific’ skills that will help them to ‘earn money.’
The result is a vast number working adults who struggle to solve problems, innovate and cope with change or difficulty. It doesn’t have to be like this! By developing our creative intelligence we can see possibility again, bring back innovation to communities and build robust and nimble businesses.
Happily, creativity is a skill that can be developed. Developing creativity involves understanding creativity, developing a creative mindset, removing blockages to creativity and developing creative thinking skills.
Everyone has the ability to unlock substantial creativity within themselves. With some intention and focussed application, there’s no limit to how creative we can be.
At Creativity Wake-Up, our passion is to revive and foster robust creative thinking in individuals, leaders and teams. We believe that there's little more powerful on earth than a fully charged creative mind!
To be clear, we don’t see creativity as artistry, craft work or the ability to draw. What we are talking about is creative thinking. A definition that we like to work with is: Creativity is the use of imagination to create something that is novel and useful. Creativity is active. Ideas are a dime a dozen, but creativity and the creative process turn original ideas into reality.
Creativity and innovation are often discussed together so to define the word innovation, we’d say: innovation is creativity with economic gain.
