Event Details


These workshops will help you to manage all of the 'shifts' in your business and personal live.




We will show you how to 'INVESTIGATE' by going inside the box. Then using the KnowBrainer tools we will demonstrate how to ask more questions to determine the correct problem so you can 'INNOVATE' rather than replicate your solutions. Upon completion you will learn how to 'INITIATE the results to deliver better results.


It will help you create and sustain a competitive differentiation and tap into your inner genius.


Upon completion you will never look at problems and challenges in the same way.


For the next year we will provide you a roadmap to help you at the crossroads of random thinking and unknown predictability.


We are offering four different, intensive, unique, learning experiences designed to accelerate the innovation, customer service, presenation skills, and work balance for individuals and organizations.


After each workshop presentation participants will review complimentary invitations to four (4) follow-up webinars. In addition, each participant will receive personal coaching call, once a quarter, for the following twelve (12) months. Four for each workshop.



Innovation Skills (IS)

INVESTIGATE: Know Your Brain. Understand work/balance.

#1 excercise will give each participant a picture of their thinking style preferences and point the way toward working together more effectively and productively. The process will give everyone a chance to get to know each other, experience the differences in thinking style, and an understanding and acceptance that there are no right or wrong thinking style preferences.

This interactive proccess offers you the choice of how to determine who you are, how you function, and how you interact with your associates, friends, and family. At the conclusion teams will be formed to work together for the Idea Exchange and other activities.

#2 quadrant will address the number one issue plaguing employee satisfaction: work/life balance. 

This portion of the workshop is designed to help participants get beyond the work-life balance myth and identify practical ways to increase personal and professional satisfaction.

The results will be...

    • increased productivity and innovation 
    • decreased stress and downtime 
    • increased employee engagement 
    • improved employee and customer satisfaction 
    • improved loyalty 
    • healthier and happier employees

This powerful quadrant of the workshop dispels several myths about the work-life issue and presents practical tools and systems to help people achieve lives that are both personally and professionally satisfying.

We will help you get beyond the work-life balance myth and identify practical ways to increase personal and professional satisfaction. Over 90% of our surveyed employers believe that people work best when they can strike a balance between work and the rest of their lives and working in most organizations requires a balance of personalities and skill sets, our team will help you to understand what need to know to understand

  • Why some groups work well together and others don't.
  • Why some groups are more productive and fun to work with and others are non productive and boring.
  • Why the same person can do extremely well in one job and poorly in another.

INNOVATE: Real World Innovation Strategies

#3 is designed for leaders who are responsible for driving top-line growth and promoting innovation, including marketing, technology and sales, as well as upper management. The workshop format gives you hands-on experience in redesigning both the “what” and the “how” of innovation in your organization as you apply what you learn about:

  • How to create a culture of innovation.
  • The vital link between innovation and strategy.
  • The four types of innovation and why you must have all four.
  • How to identify the key obstacles to innovation.
  • How to overcome challenges and deliver results.
  • How to set goals, budgets, metrics and risk.
  • How to equip your team with more productive Innovation Tools and Resources.
  • How to use and maximize the benefits of the KnowBrainer.

INITIATE: Innovative Solutions

#4 will address YOUR questions and offer an Idea Exchange that will develop better, faster, and smarter solutions to YOUR organizations problems. Each person will leave with the collective solutions provided by two intensive days of 'brain storming' and 'creative problem solving.'  The pre-workshop questions will be identify a primary goal, challenge, problem, or opportunity and the participants will brainstorm ideas and connections relating to your goal. It's all about change and making Shift Happen.
