Creative Thinking and Innovation


Creative thinking and innovation are vital components in both personal and professional lives. However, many people feel as though they are lacking in creativity.

What most of us do not recognize is that we are creative on a daily basis, whether it’s picking out what to wear in the morning or stretching a tight budget at work. While these tasks may not normally be associated with creativity, there is a great deal of creativity involved to get those jobs done. While some people seem to be simply bursting with creativity, others find it a struggle to think outside the square. If you fall into the latter category, it is important to understand that boosting your creative and innovative abilities takes practice. Recognizing and honing your own creative potential is a process. That’s what this one day workshop is all about.
