Creativity Workshop

Our one-day Spark Creativity Workshop empowers participants to identify their barriers to inspiring innovation and creativity as a leader. Through interactive exercises participants learn and practice key skills to overcome these barriers. This daylong workshop includes a simple creative process (no artistic skills required!), that provides participants insights into what blocks their creativity and deepens their ability to be leaders that spark innovation. Participants leave with specific strategies and activities for inspiring inspiration and action.

Topics include: Managing the inner critic; Importance of taking risks and willingness to fail; Strategies that promote a more creative team; and Using nature to inspire. Partcipants leave with:

  • A better understanding of what blocks your creativity and innovation
  • More comfort in stepping into the unknown
  • A specific short-term strategy for increasing innovation in your team
  • A kick-off, interactive activity that will inspire creativity and make sustainability more visible
