About this Event

Introduction:

How do we manage our workflow better to achieve our goals while staying free, open and creative?

When you have a new idea or an urge to make a change in your professional life, you need the ability to make the right decision as to whether you pursue it and when to do so. We are used to living in the world of analysing, critiquing and using only rational thinking to solve the problems we face on a daily basis.

Although an essential skill, it usually brings us to the same results and we end up feeling stuck in the work we’re doing or the idea we’re exploring.

In order to achieve outcomes that you are proud of, you need to master different ways of thinking, including getting comfortable with uncertainty and ambiguity. It’s through fostering playfulness and developing self-awareness that you are able to face the complexities of your aspirations and effectively drive your ideas and visions forward.

About this Bootcamp:

We’ve split this workshop into 2 parts. Part 1 is being held on 30th November and Part 2 will be in January 2020. There’s no obligation to join Part 2 if you attend Part 1.

Part 1: All about Creativity (30th Nov).

Aim:

The purpose of Part 1 of the ‘From Monotony to Creativity’ workshop is to get you out of your daily analytical, rational and critical ways of thinking and into new, creative ways of thinking and being. We have 4 simple yet powerful tools which when applied, help you access two very different ways of thinking and it’s through mastering these that you can easily slip into a state of creativity and encourage clear communication when collaborating with others.

What we’ll do:

We explore what creativity is, our assumptions about it and what stops us from being in a creative state. Diving even deeper we share the differences between divergent and convergent thinking and how vital each one is when it comes to making a change in our personal and professional lives, however small or big that change may be.

The entire workshop is delivered in a creative way to help bring to life just how easy it is to unlock creative states needed to explore hidden potential.

Our project management model provides the context for how and when to apply states of creativity and modes of thinking when it comes to realising your ideas and aspirations.

Who it’s for:

People who are ready to try working and playing in new ways: self-starters, visionaries or change-makers.

If you don't yet identify with any of the above but you can see yourself stepping into that role in the near future, then this course is for you.

What you’ll learn:

· The importance of creativity –why it’s now a necessity when it comes to realising your goals and collaborating with others.

· The barriers that stop you from thinking big.

· 4 Tools to help you get into a creative state of being.

· Understanding convergent and divergent thinking.

· Peer-to-peer support.

· Identifying next steps for your goals.

Part 2: Putting Creativity into Practice (Jan 2020 - exact date TBA).

Aim:

The purpose of the second part of the ‘From Monotony to Creativity’ workshop is to put into practice what we learnt in Part 1, by applying the tools, ways of thinking and states of being to the idea or aspiration you have chosen to work on. This day is all about you and how you are when approaching and managing change.

What we’ll do:

We begin by asking you to share your learnings and experiences in applying the tools we shared in Part 1. We dive into shedding assumptions so that you can clearly identify what you need for your idea or aspiration and we highlight the importance of ensuring the people you are working or collaborating with are in the same mode of thinking as you. Our project management model continues to serve as the framework for going deeper with exploring states of creativity and modes of thinking.

Who it’s for:

Those wonderful individuals who attended Part 1 of the ‘From Monotony to Creativity’ workshop. Continuing to work and play in new ways.

Self-starters, visionaries or change-makers.

What you’ll learn:

· How to get comfortable with the practicing the 4 Tools

· Strategies for overcoming barriers to creativity.

· How to move seamlessly from convergent to divergent thinking.

· How to invite others to support you in your work and realisations.

· Peer-to-peer support.

· Knowing your next steps for your goals.
