Course: Breakthrough Thinking for Leaders

Learn how to facilitate breakthroughs in thinking on your teams and drive innovation.

Description:

If innovation is to take root in your organization, managers and staff alike must approach their work in new ways, with new expectations and by thinking differently.

Creativity, increasingly recognized as a critical leadership skill, enables innovation through a combination of creative process and creative thinking.  To drive innovation, organizations need to define problems, structure creative problem solving and engage in disciplined idea management.

Through an introduction to the FourSight Thinking System™, participants learn a language and approach to problem solving that enables productive collaboration, increases engagement, and fosters a culture of innovation. By leveraging creative thinking principles, participants learn an “idea protocol” to promote the development and growth of new ideas and creative solutions.

During the workshop, participants receive personal feedback on their FourSight Thinking Profile™, which helps individuals develop an awareness of their personal preferences for engaging in creative process. Participants will also learn how to use the Innovation Station Launch Pad —a simple, repeatable process to solve problems, meet challenges, and think through challenges and opportunities— and will receive Your Tool Cards, 20 unique creative and critical thinking tools to enhance the FourSight process, focus innovation efforts and drive greater results.
