Creative Problem-Solving training for Groups (Live and Virtual Options)

  • 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 either in a live or virtual setting to create new ideas. This training offer can also be delivered virtually, typically using platforms like Zoom and Microsoft TEAMS. .

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 our live or virtual trainings 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 (Live and Virtual Options)

    • 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?
    • Do you want to energize your team who are now working remotely?

    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. Since Spring 2020, necessity resulted in a massive increase in remote working, which can often change the communications dynamic and challenge existing teams and how well they function.

    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/virtually depending on your training needs. Virtual training is typically delivered using platforms like Zoom and Microsoft TEAMS. Your team will leave energized, relaxed and knowing each other better. Improv-ed even!!! (get it?)

    Presentation Skills Training

    In the past few months we have seen a seismic shift from Live Presentations and Meetings to virtual presentations across a variety of platforms such as Zoom, Microsoft TEAMS and Google Hangouts. We have traded the board room for the Virtual chat room, where the audience’s face is up close and personal, and presenters have a whole new criteria to consider.

    Whether is it a pitch for funding, an update on a project, or an introduction to a new business, presenters need to think about the content they deliver, the style in which they deliver that content, and the technology/platform that they choose to present with. There are additional factors to consider brought on by the Global Pandemic that have made all people who need to present rethink their presentation strategies.

    Tracy has almost 25 year’s experience in presenting in a variety of guises. In addition to delivering conference speeches, emceeing events, and competing in public speaking competitions, she has also delivered Presentation Skills Training for a variety of small business and agencies. As a qualified coach she also offers one-to-one coaching for anyone who would prefer a private, more targeted session to focus on an upcoming pitch or presentation.

    In addition to the expertise she can provide both on the style and substance of any presentation, Tracy is also qualified in Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP).

    This modality is an ideal tool to use when dealing with nerves brought on by public speaking , and while the audience is not physically in front of a speaker in most cases, their faces, and therefore their reactions can be more discernible given their proximity to the camera.

    The Creative Institute is the one-stop-shop for all things Presentations. Whether it is help with a one-off presentation that has to count, or you have a team that you want to upskill, we can ensure that the experience is an empowering and engaging experience where all aspects of presenting are addressed and explained.

    NLP Training (Live and Virtual Options)

    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(each is available as a half-day or full-day virtual or live training option, virtual training is typically delivered using platforms like Zoom and Microsoft TEAMS.:

    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. This workshop has been revised to take account of the growing trend towards virtualized presentations.

    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. This offering can be delivered virtually to help remote workers manage the transitions brought on by the last 6 months, typically using platforms like Zoom and Microsoft TEAMS.
