Be More Creative at Work - Business Workshop
Many of the challenges we encounter in the modern workplace require us to develop creative solutions to complex problems. And even when we’re not tackling big problems, continuously improving the way we work using invention and imaginative strategy is deeply important.
Thankfully, creativity doesn’t mean drawing brilliant ideas from thin air. It isn’t a rare and highly dramatic activity. More commonly it refers to combining existing ideas, elements, or resources to create something that has never existed before. That’s why anyone working in any field can learn to be creative.
In this workshop, we use the history of art and business to explore the idea of creativity itself. We examine key techniques of great artists and entrepreneurs to see how they make use of combination and reinvention, how they take inspiration from pre-existing models and how they build on the work of others. We also look at the psychological and emotional aspects of creative work, focusing on how to understand and overcome the barriers that hinder our thinking and prevent us from reaching our full creative potential.
In this workshop, we learn:
•How to follow the lead of great artists and entrepreneurs such as Pablo Picasso and William Morris using techniques such as translation, repositioning and reorientation to develop new ideas from existing models.
•How to overcome the psychological barriers to creativity that leave us feeling anxious or overly self-critical.
•How to develop new and better habits to help foster creativity in various spheres of life.
