You know that these topics are important: creative cities, creative
community, creative industries, creative class, creative economy,
cultural creatives, etc. But how do you intentionally CREATE such
places? We can help you develop ideas and apply creativity and
imagination with grassroots groups to capitalize on your community's
strengths and implement citizen ideas. This works uses the Applied
Creative Thinking Process, plus Joseph Beuys' Social Sculpture
concepts. We can also assist with specific Creative Problem Solving
challenges in your community.
Creative and Innovative Organizations
We can help you assess the climate for creativity and innovation
in your organization, help your employees tap into and apply more of
their creative talents, generate ideas and solutions for new products
and services, and teach proven processes and tools for applied
creative thinking. Develop your organization's capacity for creative
leadership and innovation. Apply these creativity skills
to strategic planning in your organization, as well.
Education, Teaching and Youth
Creative thinking is one of the most important 21st century skills
for children to learn. We can help both students and teachers develop
creative thinking and problem solving skills and behaviors.
Aging, Retirement and Work
Creative thinking can be used to discover and imagine what's most
purposeful and meaningful in one's life, while applying specific tools
to living that purpose and making it real in the world.
and Developing Creativity in People
Help your teams, colleagues, organizations, schools and
communities understand individuals' unique creative thinking and
problem solving style. This program includes a thinking profile tool,
which helps people recognize their own creative thinking strengths in
