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.
