Training Course Syllabus:


What are the training objectives for this program?

Participants will learn how to:

* Recognize & overcome the barriers to critical thinking & creative thinking
* Identify & solve problems through inductive & deductive reasoning
* Develop & implement creative (and practical) solutions to complex problems
* Stimulate critical thinking in team members, colleagues, vendors, and clients
* Listen for and accurately assess key information during meetings, classes, and conversations
* Collect, analyze, and process new information using multiple perspectives
* Communicate their new ideas properly to ensure complete "buy-in"

Overall, participants will leave the training class with the mental tools to see beyond the obvious, and the confidence to handle creative projects under strict deadlines.

What makes this program different?

Most creative thinking programs provide activities to help participants "loosen up" - to free their minds and allow the creative juices to flow. However, these activities are always conducted in a controlled training environment - without threat of consequence. As a result, many participants quickly discover, once they are back in their normal (real-world) work environment, it is not so easy to recreate those same free-flowing creative thoughts.

In this program, we will show participants how to use their preferred thinking style and their own unique personality to master the creative thinking process. As a result, once they leave our training class they will be able to call upon their own cognitive strengths to quickly develop new and innovative ideas in any type of work (or learning) environment.
