Einstein said that we’re all born geniuses – which suggests that the the journey toward adulthood often constrains our thinking. Very often, the pressure to be serious, along with stress, anxiety, and self-criticism holds us back from being fully creative. With the right mindset and strategies we can overcome these blocks and bring creativity back into our daily lives and our chosen career.

In this workshop:

• Learn the myths and realities of the creative process
• Practise strategies for coming up with new ideas
• Explore how to transcend outdated assumptions and develop radically new ideas
• Discuss the emotional obstacles which sometimes inhibit our creative efforts
• Consider how to regularly access a more creative mindset
