Creativity and Innovation Certification – Program 3 + Heart and Mind Methodology

Many experts believe that in the same manner in which quality was the issue of the last two decades of the 20thCentury, innovation has become the issue of the first two decades of the 21st Century. More than ever before, organizations realize that they must innovate to survive and thrive. They seek training that helps their employees acquire creative thinking and innovation competencies. This workshop provides you with the resource you need to meet this rising need.

  • This workshop helps individuals and teams sharpen their creative thinking, idea generation, and problem solving skills for breakthrough achievements.
  • Learn how some of America’s most innovative organizations, such as Disney, Apple, Dell, 3M, GE, have created a culture of innovation.
  • Creativity and Innovation at Work is a unique workshop that helps people sharpen their creative thinking and problem solving skills through research-based techniques for breakthrough achievements. You will also learn how some of America’s most innovative companies have created a culture of innovation at work.

  • Why Creativity and Innovation Training?

    Today, with the rising concern about the economy and the impact of the forces of globalization, competition, technology, workforce diversity, and changes in value-systems, the search for new strategies that help corporate America cope has intensified.

    The popularity of such recent books as The Rise of the Creative Class, and other books on creativity, is but one indication of the growing recognition of the importance of creativity and innovation for business and society.

    Our Creativity Training Gives You Access to the Source of Innovation

    Where do creative ideas come from? How can you boost your ability to generate new solutions for entrenched problems? What techniques can you use to significantly increase your ability to look at the same thing others look at and see something different? In one of the workshop's modules, participants are introduced to more than thirty sources of new ideas.

    The Creativity and Innovation at Work workshop takes participants on a mind-opening journey filled with the excitement of new possibilities. Participants harness their ability to see problems in an entirely new light and generate an abundance of solutions.

    Participants Learn to Become Progress-Makers at Their Workplace

    Organizations need people who make waves, who don’t do “business as usual” or accept “the status quo.”

    • These are the people who will create new products and services, come up with breakthrough improvements, and achieve extraordinary accomplishments.
    • These are the people who will challenge things as they are.
    • These are the people upon whom the progress of your organization depends.
    • And these are the persons whose creativity we unleash with our training.

    Warning: Your workplace might not be the same after this training!

    People look at things as they are, and ask why? I dream of things that never have been and ask why not?

    - George Bernard Shaw

    Asking “Why not?” is one of many idea-generation techniques participants learn in the Creativity at Work training.

    With our certification, you will be able to help any organization shake up their culture and break free from the self imposed limitations of business-as-usual mentality.

    You will also receive our Heart & Mind Learning

    Heart & Mind Learning is a HumaNext methodology that ensures that a workshop enjoys a number of built-in special design and delivery features that have proven to turn ordinary training sessions into extraordinary learning and changing experience. We have put the best lessons of our diversified training experience in the design of a unique approach to training that we call Heart & Mind Learnin, or H&ML.

    From Instruction to Discovery

    The task of designing training workshops is called “Instructional Design” which is based on the idea that the trainer will provide “instructions” to participants as the way for them to learn.

    Our “Heart & Mind Learning” approach calls for changing this mind-set so that when you design a learning workshop you focus on providing opportunities, activities, and ideas that enable participants to “discover” the learning points for themselves. Instead of engaging in “Instructional Design” you will engage in “Discovery Design.” Not only this is better, more impactful, and more interesting for participants, it is also all that for the facilitator as well.

    With all Tracks, you will also receive Heart & Mind Learning Facilitator’s Guide and PowerPoint slides, as well as access to webinars to hear directly from the author of Heart & Mind Learning on how to integrate it into all your training workshops.
