Session description

Innovation drives progress across all industries. We can define it as “directed creativity, implemented.” But where do creative ideas come from? Fortunately, it turns out that everyone is capable of creative thought, you just need to know how to put your mind into a “thinking differently” mode. Come learn how to stimulate yourself, and others, to be creative . . . on demand.

By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the differences in the mental process used for everyday thinking versus creative thinking; and

  • Apply selected tools to generate creative ideas, alone or in groups.
