These days, professionals in all industries need to exercise a high level of creative thinking and generation of innovative ideas, not just to help ourselves advance in our careers, but to help our companies produce great products and services. Standard working conditions, however, can extinguish our creative fire, making it tough to come up with fresh ideas precisely when we need them most. What is needed is a way to work better so that we can create more. With Denise Jacobs you will explore various concepts and approaches, including the neuroscience of creativity, productivity techniques, and emerging practices that spur innovation. You will discover not only the ways in which your brains work best, but also what’s behind the times when you feel on fire with creativity and when you don’t. You will translate this information into processes and techniques for dramatically enhanced creative productivity. Beware: this workshop challenges the standard norms around concentration, focus, productivity, and may change how you work…for the better.
