Creativity Beyond the Spark: Finding Your Creative Process

Creativity is more than the spark of an idea or that “Ah Ha!” moment. It is a process that we each take, consciously or unconsciously, as we work to discover and employ new and useful solutions. It is how we are guided by our curiosity; it is in the ideas we explore; it is where we realize growth is possible; and it is in the steps we take to make it happen.

In this quick paced, interactive program we will explore our creative processes in order to better understand our preferences and to uncover ways that we might be more aware in order to reduce blind spots in our work. We will investigate how a solid creative process, and applying that process in a deliberate manner, can enhance our creativity and our creative output.

Join us in starting the journey of moving from preference to deliberate practice in order to become a more structured problem solver, facilitator, or leader.
