CREATIVE THINKING FOR INNOVATION
A creative workforce is
INNOVATION HAS BECOME ABSOLUTELY CRUCIAL
We are in a crisis. Innovation is our way out.
In addition to the seismic impact of the pandemic, automation is displacing jobs and cutting down on process-oriented tasks.
CREATIVITY IS YOUR COMPETITIVE EDGE
Businesses urgently need to get people thinking creatively to cope with uncertainty and the new ways of working.
Creativity is underdeveloped and under pressure. Yet, creative solutions are required to shape a new world and grow sustainable business.
HOW WE WORK
We're seeing many organisations in need of developing creativity and innovation. It all starts with a shift in mindset - an understanding of what creative intelligence is, the importance of creativity in the workplace and how the neuroscience behind our creativity works. It's important for senior leadership to understand these concepts so that they are not only ready to support creative growth, but also to role model it themselves. Since the Human Resources function is tasked with managing (not owing) the levers behind corporate culture, it's vital that this group is empowered and equipped with the mindset and skillset to drive this culture transformation together with senior leadership.
We just love sharing what we know and inspiring people to learn!
Our in-person workshops are unique, refreshing and transformative. We make our live virtual training engaging and interactive. Our video-based online courses are personal and impactful, with lots of practical activity and community support.
Whether you need new perspectives, new ideas or new solutions, we can help to faciliate your thinking. If you are missing opportunities or just feeling stuck, using an external facilitator can help you to achieve breakthrough. We are trained in the Creative Problem Solving Process (CPS) and can help you apply powerful steps and tools to move you forward.
We bring our own creativity to our keynotes, which wlil no doubt surprise and delight you. Our in-person and online talks typically include physical and mental stimulation, creative challenges, personal creativity tests, polls, participant input, global case studies, practical examples and a good dose of humour. (We can't take ourselves too seriously if we are going to get fresh thinking!)
Transforming a culture requires a systemic approach. You don't need to do it alone. We're here to help you analyse and transform your social norms, your rules and policies, your systems and processes, and most importantly your organisation's assumptions and beliefs. Let us partner with you to nurture a truly innovative culture with strong roots that will bear your business fruit in the future.

CEO, Homecoming Revolution
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.
