October 25, 2018 Chapter Meeting

Fostering Creativity in a Left Brained World
Presentation Description:
Most believe creativity is something you are born with and not something that can be taught. We will spend this hour myth busting by teaching you ways to engage teams in the workplace with some tactical exercises sure to spark some out of the box thinking, create some critical thinking to apply to problems and get some laughs along the way. We will explore the value of tapping into the creative centers of the brain and structure a way to apply these ideas for team synergy.

This interactive session will give participants a chance to:
  • Learn to give creativity a voice and a proper place in the workplace
  • Deepen understanding of the value of multi-modal learning and thinking
  • Practice team exercises that achieve fast and fun results
  • Share obstacles and challenges experienced within teams
  • Learn strategies for overcoming obstacles
  • Plan their own creative interventions
