Stimulate innovation in any group
Jazz up your facilitation skills with an enjoyable one-day workshop full of cool, fun facilitation techniques and tricks to transform the creativity of any group, magnify their genius and generate original, innovative ideas and solutions.
You'll walk away with the skills to practice these methods the next time you facilitate a workshop or meeting.
There is a serious purpose too: surprising, left-field ideas are EXACTLY the ones we need to create irresistibly engaging projects. When we burst the balloon of "same-old" we excite people, create new possibilities and spread optimism that it's possible to break out of the straightjacket of predictability.
Unexpected solutions are also essential to tackle the seemingly intractable problems the real world faces. As Einstein famously said: "We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them." The ability to generate innovative, unconventional ideas is a vital skill for anyone tackling tricky health or environmental problems.
The day includes a crash course in Innovation Thinking, including how to set boundaries for the innovation process.
This workshop assumes you have done some facilitation and have upcoming facilitation challenges that would benefit from some creative zap. It would be neat if you've already done Facilitation Skills training, but it's not necessary.
