Collaborative Cognitive Creative Problem Solving – The PrOp Method

Generating Ideas – Creativity For Everyone

Creative Innovative Thinking Is A Skill

Only about 50% of people think they are not creative, and over 80% say they are too busy to think creatively. That’s a big problem because most people spend much of their time at work trying to solve problems or take advantage of opportunities. Both require ideas. The good news is that the ability to think of creative ideas is a skill that can easily be learned, just like other workplace skills. This workshop will teach anyone to think more creatively and innovatively.
