Leading Creative Culture at Workplace



Course Introduction

Responding to challenges and problems with time-tested answers is an inevitable reflex action, considering  that we are pressed for time and we also wish to “play-safe”.  Consequently, we often hope to solve current and future challenges with answers that have worked in the past. The need for innovation and creativity in our workplace is more imperative today than any other time.

Situations and problems,  however, do change. Hence, optimising our creative actions and responses to the ever-changing situations would become priority in the 21st century. Instead of thinking with blinkers on, the organisation must free its old thinking from self- imposed shackles and nurture a more creative thinking environment, support more creative employees, turn around difficult and resistant employees and reward those who contributed to the success of the new initiative.

We must break through barriers, open windows of opportunities and create that extra potential with transformational thinking and action, especially when we think we have exhausted all avenues.

This programme allows the organisation to develop and nurture both creativity and innovation so that it can create new understanding, application and commitment for employees to the organisation  and a breakthrough to a different level of work attitude.
