“How can you train us to get out of habitual ways of thinking? Most of our ideas are predictable, boring and uninspiring.”
In 2003 one of my clients suggested that I should start training people in Creative Thinking. I was not sure but launched our first training programme called Creative Block Busting© in April 2003. The workshops were a hit because we presented a nice environment in which people could relax, unwind, be playful. Thus their minds were open to new ideas and they were ready to play around with new concepts. The emphasis was about learning, not training.
What is Creative Block Busting©workshop all about?
Creative Block Busting© is a two-day training programme that teaches you a step by step process to define your problem or challenge sharply, generate lots of alternative ideas quickly, sort ideas and select ideas smartly, develop the ideas into solutions and get buy-in for your ideas effectively.
Who should attend the Creative Block Busting© Workshop?
If you are in charge of a function or department, accountable for results, you have several people reporting to you, and find that your people are unable to think differently, then you will find Creative Block Busting© Workshop relevant and useful for your organisation.
Your designation could be Senior Manager, General Manager, Vice President or Director. Or perhaps CEO.
Creative Block Busting© Workshops are industry and function neutral. I have conducted these workshops for sales, marketing, IT, HR, R&D, Finance and commercial functions. Clients were from FMCG, Banking, Telecom, Chemicals, Power, Auto, Insurance, Finance and Services sector. (B2C as well as B2B).
What are the benefits of participating in a Creative Block Busting© programme?
Creative Block Busting© Workshop simplifies, clarifies and makes the thinking process enjoyable without losing the rigour. The process steps are simple, easy to follow. You also get a complete Creative Block Busting© Tool Kit that helps you enormously in thinking differently.
How many people can each workshop accommodate?
I find that a minimum group size of 15 and a maximum of 25 works best for me. Occasionally I have handled group sizes of 30. I am keen that I give attention to every single participant. Therefore the size of the group is critical for the success of the session.
