My two hour 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 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. Deborah brings her experience as an artist together with her years of experience as a sustainability consultant for this unique offering.

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.

What You Will 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 creativity at home and at work
