Event description

Description

Increasingly, our work - both individually and collectively - is situated around problem solving, transformation and innovation initiatives.

If you facilitate or lead creative problem solving processes, the methodologies you apply (Design Thinking, Systems Thinking, Foresight, and others) are very useful, of course.

This workshop is an opportunity to add a layer to your knowledge and know-how through creative exercises and art. It will make you aware of the various emotions triggered by the creative problem solving process and the necessity to take them into account in order to achieve results.

We know that when participants are in a positive, open frame of mind, we perform better, have courage to voice our ideas, and enable space for true collaboration.

For instance, imagine an artist painting….using technique, skills, inspiration...
It’s easy to imagine that this painter also needs to be in a certain state of mind, an emotional availability, in order to be permeable to what emerges from within, to be playfull in a certain way, etc.


Yet. How might we enable creative openness and innovation in facilitated settings?


This 2-day, immersive, hands-on workshop is an opportunity to become more effective when you are involved in a creative problem solving process, or when helping a person or group to achieve change.

How? By becoming more aware of the many emotions triggered in the client by the creative problem solving process and that these reactions have to be treated as data, as relevant as objective inputs.

It will also be a creative atelier where we discover activities aimed at bringing the client or the group, at every step of the process, closer to a fertile emotional state.


PARTICIPANTS WILL:

  1. Clarify the necessity for the facilitator to take into account the many emotions triggered by the creative problem solving process in order to make the process more effective;
  2. Identify the specific emotions that could enrich each phase of the creative problem solving process;
  3. Discover strategies to emotionnaly prepare an individual or a group to fulfill the tasks associated with each phases of the problem solving process;
  4. Experiment artistic elaborations as ways of expression and opportunities to take risks, have fun and create!

We hope you might join us on this artistic journey!
