LEADING CREATIVE COLLABORATION
-

25-26 JULY 2017, LONDON

The challenges that we will face together in the coming years to turn around the tide of environmental destruction and human injustice will require creative solutions. We will need creative strategies and tactics that unleash the full potential of people-power to bring about that change. And to do this we need to develop our creative muscles.

Creativity isn’t something that we can take for granted, like any other skill it needs to be developed, supported by tools and training, and improves with practice. This training will focus on developing skills and experience to lead creative processes – designing structured idea development workshops and facilitating creative collaboration. With this training our aim is to boost the creative capacity, in terms of confidence and competence, on all levels – individual, team and office – to find creative solutions to environmental problems and engage many more people in bringing about the change we want in the world. We do not cover generic facilitation or leadership skills development.

Course Description

Leading Creative Collaboration spans over two intense days, during which participants explore and develop skills in leading creative collaboration and structured idea development. The course is designed for those who are serious about unfolding the creative and innovative potential in people, groups and organizations. 

After the training you will be able to

  • Understand the full innovation process
  • Lead teams thought creative collaboration and structured idea development workshops
  • Design and plan creative workshops
  • Nurture a creative culture
  • Provide your organization with a tool box for idea development and workshop design
  • Apply what you’ve learned in your project, team or organization
