Thinking Creatively

In a world where complexity, ambiguity and volatility are becoming the norm, thinking creatively and problem-solving skills are key competencies. Explore how you can channel your thinking into a creative output.

It has become increasingly important for organisations to rely on creative thinking, in an effort to distinguish themselves from competitors. Research suggests that creativity, as a leadership skill, may outweighs competencies such as global thinking.

Solving problems as a team needs a range of different thinking styles. Learn how to overcome blocks to creative thinking in the team and harness different thinking styles. Explore how to help your team approach problems positively and enthusiastically using a six stage process.

This highly interactive course is aimed at Leaders who wish to develop their creative thinking skills which in turn will help their teams overcome challenges.

This online course forms part of our Leadership & Management series and helps delegates develop the influencing skills that can open doors to increased sales and successful interactions with influential groups of people. Learn how to get your opinions heard and your ideas to relevant stakeholders in ways that not coercive, threatening or manipulative. Training is delivered on the premise that delegates must view influencing as a process, not an action, and that they must be others-focused not self-focused. By the end of the course, learners are able to generate SMART influencing goals with win/win outcomes as well as being able to identify and select from different approaches to getting your ideas across according to the circumstances and the others involved.

Saving Valuable Time

Our customers are efficient modern organisations who want eLearning to be delivered as fast as possible with full comprehension by learners obtained and recorded. They know that saving even a small amount of time per module can result in major cost savings and that learner engagement is key to effective learning.

Accelerating eLearning

Our audience are adult learners with busy lives and a job to do. They don’t want to waste time and we know they will only sustain maximum attention for a limited period. Our pacey interesting and interactive modules engage and challenge learners, providing better retention and understanding, saving people time. We don’t waffle. We do apply the ‘so what?’ test to ensure that everything said or written supports the course outcomes and we use plain English. Our courses use accelerated learning techniques to provide rapid comprehension. This includes allowing learners to experiment with a situation and see the results; using synchronised audio, text, graphics, animation, photographs and games to engage both left and right brain in the process. The learner is presented with a wide variety of interaction types and can use the eBooks for checklists and on the spot access.

Our 4 step process promotes learning, confidence and use of skills in the workplace.
  • Step 1 – Establish relevance and benefit to the learner
  • Step 2 – Engage the learner throughout the course
