Your Innovative Team

This workshop is suitable for intact or newly forming leadership or work teams.

Research shows that people think about and solve problems in measurably different ways, impacting how team members work together. To rise to the challenge of innovation, team members must develop an understanding of how they approach problem-solving, and appreciate the diversity of thinking on their team.

This training uses the FourSight Thinking Profile Assessment to provide direct feedback to individuals on the team and to the team as a whole.

Individuals take the FourSight Thinking Profile Assessment online and in the workshop, get a detailed, interactive and fun debrief of what powers each of you up in the innovation process, where you’re likely to stall out, and what you can do about it.

We then provide a detailed Team Report showing how individual thinking preferences track across the team and influence problem solving and innovation results.

Through highly interactive learning activities, your team will assess how they approach problem-solving and identify specific strategies to build team potency. By making and sharing their collaboration profiles, they will enhance innovation and strengthen relationships across the team.

    Is your team ready for the future of work?

    As our world changes, new challenges, opportunities, technologies, fields and markets emerge.


    A new set of skills for employability and adaptability are needed. In this environment, using creativity and innovation to drive business value and solve complex problems becomes all the more important. We need cognitive flexibility; we need to think differently.

    Here’s how we work:
    A BridgePoint Effect facilitator will lead a customized workshop for your team. During the workshop, everyone will learn about the universal creative process and a repeatable framework that can be used to solve problems and discover innovative solutions for all aspects of your business.

    You’ll then use this process and framework as a team so that everyone knows what innovation looks like and how to achieve it together.

    Need help deciding? 

    How will your team benefit from our training?

    Innovation is a creative process. Innovation is about solving problems creatively.

    If each person on your team doesn’t understand how they engage in creative process, they can’t fully contribute the innovative thinking you need to solve problems and achieve results.

    Need help deciding? 

    What makes our workshops so special?

    It’s about people, process and tools.

    A BridgePoint Effect innovative thinking workshop helps your team understand what innovation looks like and how to achieve it – as individuals and as a team, so they can provide the greatest value to your organization.

    While most innovation training offers tools and techniques, our training combines people and process with tools and techniques. We teach you how to bring people together to solve problems throughout the innovation process, how to tap creativity, harness the power of diversity, and thrive as you navigate through uncertainty, ambiguity and change.

    Our core creativity and innovation training curriculum is designed to develop adaptability, cognitive flexibility, agility and resilience in your workforce. We teach complex problem-solving, critical thinking and creativity skills.

    We inspire and equip your people to collaboratecommunicate, and work better together, across functions, and to meet customer demands. They’re better equipped to de-risk the innovation processmake sound decisions, and achieve your goals, even when faced with volatility, uncertainty and ambiguity. 

    Our courses integrate the internationally acclaimed FourSight Thinking System™; an assessment helps you understand how you prefer to engage in the universal creative process and what this means to how you approach challenges and achieve innovation. 

    Creative problem solving and critical thinking tools help individuals and teams navigate the innovation process.

    Here’s What Clients Say About Our Training

    I needed a way to bring together teams from across our organization.

    We had to develop an innovative, global strategy and knew that our organization would be stronger by leveraging everyone’s knowledge. We needed to get teams out of silo mentality, and we needed a process, tools, and a way to get multiple teams collaborating. BridgePoint Effect guided our leadership team, provided training and helped us achieve more than we ever thought possible.
