Description

Join us on March 6, 2019, for a training on creative problem solving with Teresa Lawrence, PHD, PMP, CSM from International Deliverables, LLC.

Leaders are called upon to positively influence the organizations and the individuals they serve. Creative leaders, those who take a proactive approach to frame their problems as challenges and who separate ideation from evaluation to produce novel and useful ideas to address or respond to challenges, increase their overall effectiveness in bringing about productive change. This session covers the mindset, showcases tools and elaborates on the thinking skills of the Creative Problem Solving process. Attendees will experience the dynamic balance of divergent and convergent thinking and leave more confident in their abilities to positively frame challenges, negotiate change and lead others through the change process.


What is Creative Problem Solving?

Creative Problem Solving is a proven, research-based method for approaching a problem or a challenge in an imaginative and innovative way. It is a process that helps redefine problems and opportunities; come up with new, innovative responses and solutions; and, then take action. At the crux of Creative Problem Solving is the dynamic balance and use of divergent and convergent thinking tools. Diverging focuses on generating ideas and options whereas converging focuses on evaluating and selecting from among developed ideas and options

  • How to become more effective problem solvers by separating ideation from evaluation

  • Strategies to frame challenges as opportunities

  • Techniques to shorten the amount of time it takes to solve problems and implement solutions
