Description

Creative problem solving is one of those skills that just cannot be forced. The harder you try, the poorer your creative problem solving skills become!

The evidence is plain – how did Einstein come up with his theory of relativity – by bashing his head against a wall? No! In a daydream where he imagined surfing along a light beam!

Always remember the more stressed you become and the more time pressure you feel, the worse you are at solving problems creatively. But in today’s workplace, those who can generate the most effective creative ideas are often the best rewarded; so how can you improve your creative problem solving skills without getting stressed about it?

For business purposes you might need the crazy approaches from time to time; especially when creating the market strategy, products, trends setting, improving processes or changing vision.

Creative Problem Solving is a way of thinking and behaving.

Creative is for an idea that has an element of newness or uniqueness, at least to the one who creates the solution, and also has value and relevancy.

What you will get:

Apply creative thinking skills to solve day-to-day problems

Establish how the seven creative problem solving techniques work:

  • Brainstorming

  • The Reversal Technique

  • The Disney Model

Some graphics could have really helped. One can grasp and remember more with images/graphics than just the voice.
