Training & Workshop List

TRAINING INTRODUCTION

In our complex and fast changing world where the focus is always on how business and its processes can be improved. It is not uncommon to see changes made for the better almost on a monthly basis in certain organizations. Executives and leaders are expected to think on their feet, and emerge with brilliant ideas as and when required, which might be a challenge to most. “Off-the-shelf” or standard thinking is just not enough! To survive the cut-throat corporate world, creativity and differentiation is the key to find innovative solutions to difficult problems and make decisions in an environment in which there are lots of unknowns.

How many of us have said “I am not the creative kind…”, especially when faced with tasks that require a degree of creativity. The fact of the matter is, creativity, in the business world at least, can be honed with awareness, knowledge and practice. It is a skill which can be learnt- at any age. Once you’ve learnt the pre-requisites and understand how it applies to you, the next step would be to organise the thinking methodically, and then move on to the action phase. And this is precisely what this programme is going to help you do, and it will be a lesson learnt for life.
