Creative Problem-Solving training for Groups

  • Do you have a team which needs new ideas?
  • Does your group work in a constantly adapting environment which demands creativity and rapid response?
  • What about a Creative Problem-Solving Workshop or Training day?

What is Creative Problem Solving?

Creative Problem Solving is the skillset that allows both individuals and groups to approach a problem from several different angles and optimize their chances for one or several solutions being discovered.

Our methodology fuses a number of cutting edge modalities, such as Neuro Linguistic Programming, or NLP, disciplined improvisation and coaching. Participants wont find themselves sitting in front of numerous PowerPoint Presentations but rather engaging with content and with each other to create new ideas.

Our sessions are structured so as there is a high degree of interaction throughout the day. Short theory modules are delivered and then participants move to practical exercises which get them into a Creative Zone. We always begin by focusing on universal themes and subjects rather than specific business interests, to allow the group to experiment and flex their creative muscle.

Creative Problem Solving is a skill which is developed, and can be developed by anyone. Everyone has creativity and creative potential. Just like basic skills such as literacy and mathematics are taught in schools, we can learn and adapt a mindset which is more creativity-led.

Fundamental to this training is the creation of a space whereby ideas can be produced after the workshop itself. Participants involved in training experience the energizing feeling of creativity and collaboration, and it is important to continue to exercise this muscle to continue to feel the benefits of the creative problem solving workshop. Our sessions include a next steps module to take account of this.

We offer half day and full day interactive workshops on the above.

Team-building days

  • Want to give your team a fun learning experience?
  • Have you new staff that you want to integrate into your department/business?
  • Do you want laughter to factor in a big way into your chosen teambuilding format?

Teambuilding: the action or process of causing a group of people to work together effectively as a team, especially by means of activities and events designed to increase motivation and promote cooperation

Teambuilding events are a great way of consolidating any group. In busy and even virtual workspaces, it can be hard to find the time to connect and maintain rapport with colleagues. That’s why teambuilding as an investment needs to be memorable, to sustain these working relationships and reinforce the sense of belonging each team member feels to a company.

Imagine there was a methodology that not only encouraged better communication between co-workers; it also was a light-hearted, dynamic way of building better links between staff. Improvisation is a term known better as a stage and comedy device, but it is also being taught in the World’s top business Schools (London University, Harvard University, MIT). Improvisation exercises work great in groups for improving collaboration, problem-solving and reducing stress.

Improvisation is a memorable teambuilding event. It provides numerous hilarious moments, and allows individuals to explore making mistakes and embracing failure in a safe environment. It bonds a group through shared laughter, and in a strangely non-competitive way. Ideally suited for a full day, we also offer half-day teambuilding workshops. These can be delivered on site or offsite depending on your training needs. Your team will leave energized, relaxed and knowing each other better. Improv-ed even!!!(get it?)

NLP Training

Neuro Linguistic Programming, or NLP for short is a rapid transformational tool which gives insights into how to communicate more effectively and eliminate roadblocks to success. It is particularly useful for the following skill-sets:

  1. Public Speaking and Presentations Imagine being able to convey your creativity, passion and ideas clearly and successfully? NLP is a fantastic modality to help develop these skills because it targets the two key areas of any presentation; style and substance. Neuro Linguistic Programming will help you draft presentations choc full of compelling and influential language, and it will also give you the tools to present this kick ass presentation with confidence.

  2. Effective Sales Techniques Selling is a specific skill, but you can optimize your chances of successful selling by working on key sales skills. NLP training can help develop your sales technique in the following areas: Working on and developing your questioning skills Drafting a pitch full of influential and impactful language Creating a resourceful “State of Selling” you can access where you feel confident and capable of handling objections and closing that sale.

  3. Stress Management and Workplace Well-being. When any of us feels stressed we know it will affect our lives, personally and professionally. The phrase “Stress Management” refers to the reality of stressors all around us, and how the onus is on us to figure out how to handle them and life at the same time. NLP provides a suite of tools and techniques which can help individuals and teams look at problems from a different perspective, in order to free up their creative skills to solve that problem. It is highly beneficial to train teams rather than individuals so that team members can help and support each other as well as themselves. Our workshops focus on creating a relaxing and learning space, with plenty of practical, replicable tools to take home for each person.

We offer half day and full day  interactive workshops on the above.
