Does your organization have a culture that expects and encourages innovative thinking from everyone?
Since much of what we do each day is solve problems and try to take advantage of opportunities, the ability to generate winning ideas is critical. The problem is that only about 50% of people think they are creative, and over 80% say they are too busy to think creatively.
Most organizations try to hire the best people and want their best thinking. Many have installed “suggestion box” systems to get employees ideas. Many have made major investments in continuous improvement initiatives (Lean, kaizen, TQM).
But few have trained leaders on how to foster a culture that expects and supports innovative thinking from everyone. And even fewer have trained their people in a simple process to continuously generate innovative ideas.
This 4-hour workshop is practical and hard-hitting. We don’t waste your time with a lot of filler material just to make it longer and therefore appear to have more value. We focus on quality, not quantity as we teach you the PrOp Innovative Thinking System’s proven principles for fostering an innovative culture. This hands-on workshop teaches you how to foster and nurture innovative thinking from everyone in your organization and make the skill of generating innovative ideas a core competence, part of your organization’s cultural DNA.
Our founder developed the PrOp Innovative Thinking System based on 20+ years of consulting for Fortune 500 companies and working in new product development at P&G, Rubbermaid, and Toro. He saw what works in highly innovative organizations, and what crushes innovative thinking.
This workshop will teach you why having everyone thinking innovatively is critical, what leaders need to do to foster an innovative culture, and principles for creative thinking for employees to use. When you are done, you will understand how to quickly foster and nurture a powerfully innovative culture in your organization.
