​Leverage your creative intelligence to get unstuck and become a more agile, resilient and inventive thinker.

This class should take between five to twenty hours to complete, delegates however have access to the class (platform) for 4 months. 

Creativity is one of the most sought-after skills in the world. Without creativity, there is no innovation. It is the use of imagination to produce something novel and valuable. Creativity is not a talent for the gifted few but a capacity that every human mind has access to, and every leader needs to grow. Creative cultures give organisations a competitive edge, and creative leaders consistently outperform their peers.

Join creativity specialist, Nina Pearse, to help you unwrap the concepts of creativity, creative thinking  innovation and get on the road to 'creative intelligence fitness.'

Imagine you could tap into a power that would enable you to see possibilities where others only see challenges? This unique ability would aid you in problem-solving, expertly managing unforeseen change, and providing you with renewed vitality to enliven your professional and personal life. Your creative intelligence is the source of this strength. Accessing and developing it is simpler than you think. 

In this practical, science-based course you will learn:

  • What creative thinking is; 
  • How creative intelligence works;
  • How creativity relates to problem solving and innovation;
  • The basic neuroscience behind creativity;
  • What some of the latest research reveals about what makes us creative;
  • How to assess your own creativity;
  • To use a model for developing your creative thinking;
  • Practical steps for recognising and overcoming creativity blockers; and
  • Bite-sized creativity-building habits that you can begin to practice right away.
