Developing your creativity and innovation

Do you want to:

  • be more creative?
  • come up with more innovative ideas?
  • help others in your team to be more innovative?
  • work out ways to help you solve problems at work or at home?
  • understand the process of creativity?
  • work out how you can develop more of a creative and innovative mindset?

Quite often we believe that we are not innovative or creative. We will leave it to others to do the creative part. At Elephants in the Room, we believe everyone has the potential to be creative and we can help you develop the skills that prove it. 

We’ll meet you at RAMM, the Museum in Exeter, where we’ll take you through the basics of innovation and creativity:
– How to create the right environment for creativity to happen.
– Tips and techniques that will help you to be more creative.
– Tools you can take away that will support your ongoing journey into the world of increased creativity.

We’ll also explore areas of your personality that might be holding you back and explore the link between emotional intelligence, mindfulness and creativity. Finally we will take you through a project where you will learn tools and techniques to help you develop your ideas.

Here’s what the course includes:

1.  What is innovation and creativity?
Including the neuroscience behind creativity

2.  Emotional Intelligence and links to Innovation and Creativity

Including your own personal profile and coaching with a slant towards innovation and creativity

3. Mindfulness
How mindfulness can support EI, creativity and innovation.

4. An Innovation process
You will take part in a process to create your own ideas around a specific project.

We’ll keep hunger at bay with lunches, snacks, tea and coffee.
