Let’s talk about designing “WOW!” Customer Experiences specific to your business or about bringing the “WOW!” message to your team, meeting or conference on-screen (virtually) or on-stage (in person).
Creative processes and business processes are interdependent on each other when it comes to fresh ideas and innovation. But, a recent research study finds that the U.S. has been in the midst of a creative crisis since the 1990’s. Our ability to be creative is slowly and steadily being depleted.
We are using far less of our enormous, exclusively human ability to dream, imagine and create than previous generations. That reduced creative capacity has also lessened our proficiency at problem solving and idea generating and may well be holding businesses and entrepreneurs back from achieving their full creative and innovative potential—and success.
Fortunately, there are easy-to-learn mind games, exercises and routines that will help individuals revive their imaginative and creative spirit while becoming happier and more productive in their professional and personal lives.
Creativity Lab Work Includes:
- Filling artistic voids with tools that boost creative and innovative spirit.
- How ideas are generated to make it easier to navigate the creative process.
- Creative-thinking warm up exercises that make attendees better at performing creative-thinking tasks.
- Why mistakes should be embraced as a natural part of the creative process.
- Brainstorming methods that generate unique, stand-out ideas that will keep any business top-of-mind.
- And more.
The art of improvisation has become such a valuable tool in the work place that prominent universities like MIT now include improv training as part of the curriculum for students of business management.
Improvisation dares team members to trust their instincts and appreciate others and what they bring to the table. And, because improv training offers insight into leadership, persuasion and adaptability, a number of Fortune 500 companies also use it to enhance the communication and crisis management skills plus the creativity and collaborative culture of their workforce.
Ron has trained with some of the most talented improv performers in Kansas City and from across the country, and has also been performing improv since 2012.
Attendees Will Learn How To:
- Fine-tune valuable listening skills to generate more sales and amazing customer experiences.
- Conduct the most engaging, productive and rewarding sales presentations.
- Embrace the improv culture of saying “Yes,and…” to produce an abundance of innovative ideas.
- Facilitate more productive, creative brainstorming sessions that will make extraordinary differences in every aspect of any business from hiring practices to customer experiences and everything in between.
- Accept that there are no such thing as mistakes—only opportunities
- And more.
Passion, inspiration, and imagination fuel the fire of your creativity. Creativity is not only a vital element to performing your craft as an entrepreneur, it’s essential to everything you do in your business from improving your sales and marketing to increasing your bottom line.
Regularly tapping into your creative spirit can also strengthen your problem solving and idea generating skills. But what do you do when the flame fades and the fuel you depend on to be inventive and innovative is in short supply?
Ron shares an artist’s point-of-view to:
- Avoiding obstacles that cause creative block.
- Dealing with negative influences that hinder innovative advancements.
- Defying fear of failure to experiment with newly imagined ideas.
- Keeping the flame of creativity burning bright.
