Infuse creative confidence and innovation prowess within your team
Need a shot of magic and creativity within your business?
Through training workshops, I offer compact learning for teams of all sizes. I deliver a variety of in-person or virtual sessions that dive deep into Design Thinking tools, behaviors, and techniques plus practical idea generation, developing and pitching skills. Whether you’re looking to jump into creativity & innovation with both feet or just dip your toes in, I can build a custom program to suit your needs.
Some of my more intensive training programs will teach creative confidence and innovation prowess within your team:
- Participants learn the PROCESS, an easy framework for repeatable innovation.
- I share easy-to-use TOOLS to help you think differently
- I teach better collaboration BEHAVIORS that compliment both the process and the tools
This training is always well received and turns innovation barriers into enablers that unlock previously “impossible” solutions…
I also have developed a few workshops which repeatedly deliver success (and fun) to my clients. They’re designed to motivate, excite and inspire teams – powerful and direct! Here are a few of my “tapas style” workshops:
BUSINESS AS UNUSUAL- A Design Thinking Overview
A Design Thinking/Innovation Toolbox training workshop available in 2-3-4 hour virtual sessions or 4-8-16 hour in-person sessions. It’s an easy to digest, inspiring class that broaches all parts of the process (scoping, empathizing, ideating and developing) and includes supporting behaviors that help bring the process to life. It is as interactive as it is informative and of course, always FUN!
These 3-hour virtual or in-person workshops help participants construct and deconstruct their “challenge questions” to ensure they are solving the right one They also introduce ways to look at challenges from a new lens and articulate the challenge using inspiring (and human) language
