Barnes & Conti present: Applied Creativity, a 1- to 2-Day Program
Your employees may be your most valuable creative resource. However, too many companies are not taking advantage of this powerful source of ideas for innovation. Instead of allowing these thoughts and ideas to lie dormant, companies must learn to draw out the creativity of their employees.
The foundation of creativity on an organizational, team, or individual level is a mindset that encourages, stimulates, and nurtures creative thinking. There are processes and tools that can provide the necessary creative stimulation that leads to constant improvement or even breakthrough innovation.
Barnes and Conti Associates will bring this incredible program in applying creativity to you and your employees. In one or two days, participants will discover their “inner innovator” and gain the tools necessary to generate, develop, and gain support for creative ideas.
