How to Unleash Your Creativity (for Profit and Gain)


Jumpstart your business with your most powerful weapon -- the creativity of your people.

-- A seminar for you to free your creative spirit and find your great ideas

In the world of education, creativity is becoming an essential ingredient to success. Innovative thinking yields better teaching methods, smoother interactions between staff, parents and learners, and better ways of going about the day-to-day business of running a school.

People who don't believe they have this skill are at a tremendous disadvantage.

The top institutions in the world treasure the creativity of their people.
  • Yale University asks alumni for money every year. Not because theyNEED the money. But because they want to remain top-of-mind topowerful people who will employ next year's graduates.
  • 3M's invention of the Post-It Note came from one man's creative idea.
  • Xerox foresaw the need for the laser printer a full 20 years before the technology made such a device possible... and their head of research was given the reigns to do the development.
  • "Gillette is Innovation". That's their corporate slogan. Which is why they have a string of world firsts in their product line.
  • Massachusetts Institute of Technology has open-sourced its learning materials, which are now available to anyone online, free of charge. This is a very smart and creative way to get people to WANT to study at MIT.

And the good news is that every human being is creative. With a little practice and some easily learned techniques, creativity can become second nature to everyone.
  • This seminar helps people to shake themselves out of standard ways of thinking.
  • It shows them how to ask the right questions so that answers can be found in unexpected places.
