What Kind of Creative Thinker Are You?
How we tackle challenges reflects our creative thinking style. In this workshop, participants will learn about FourSight, a 4-step framework for Creative Problem Solving. This hands-on workshop provides the opportunity to apply the principles and creatively work through a problem as a team. You’ll benefit from learning where you gain and lose energy in the creative process and strategies for working with others who approach problem solving differently. You will leave the workshop with your personal FourSight Thinking Profile**, an understanding of your creative style and guidelines for putting together a creative problem solving team, setting the stage for better outcomes outcomes personally and professionally. Co-presented by Suzanne Dameron and Martha Wells.
