A Half Day or 1 Day Creativity & Innovation Seminar
This is a one of a kind, state of the art training in creativity that will put you and your team in an unusually creative state . . . and keep them there as they solve old familiar problems in new innovative ways!
Brief Overview of This Seminar
This workshop is a dynamic one of a kind creativity experience. It begins as Alexander Van Buren presents the key distinctions he elicited during a two year behavioral modeling project designed to identify the key processes of creativity, genius and innovation.
Specific processes for accessing the creativity patterns of Walt Disney are covered in detail. They are followed by the patterns of genius that have been modeled from the notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci.
Finally, the specific questions and criteria used to stimulate innovation, drawn from Peter Drucker's work, are developed and explored in detail.
These initial themes are then applied to your specific challenges and current obstacles in an upbeat 'round robin' session. Everyone is invited to participate and join in as a brainstorming and creativity session par excellence unfolds!
The result is a refreshing new way of solving problems and a breakthrough in both the number and quality of new ideas and solutions.
This presentation is accompanied by Alexander's original mind map.
The training has had a profound effect for several organizations and led to breakthrough's in sales, marketing and company strategy.
Participants come away with an expanded perception of what is possible, a new way of looking at old familiar problems and difficulties as well as an improved ability to solve problems.
This unique workshop often results in innovative ideas with bottom line results.
The full day training consists of four 90-minute modules. 15 minute breaks are scheduled between each module along with a 1 hour break for lunch.
An open frame is included after lunch so the group can modify the two final modules of the day based on their needs.
