This Course will give participants an overview of the entire creative problem solving process, as well as key problem solving tools that they can use every day.
In the past few decades, psychologists and business people alike have discovered that successful problem solvers tend to use the same type of process to identify and implement the solutions to their problems. This process works for any kind of problem, large or small.
Participants will move out of the mundane, be more curious, engage, and explore new ideas. Recognize creativity and be ready when it happens.
Participants will learn how to remove barriers that block or limit their creativity. They will improve their imagination, divergent thinking, and mental flexibility. Participants will learn mind mapping, individual brainstorming, and when to recognize and look for what inspires them to be more creative.
