Workshop Rationale:

At some point, all of us need to develop creative ideas in our careers, families, or just to make a change in our lives. Then, we get frustrated when we end up with the same old ideas, and the same old outcomes. This workshop explains the link between the type of thinking we usually carry out, such as divergent and convergent thinking, and the creativity of the ideas we develop. Mini lectures, exercises and debriefs will help you to enhance the type of thinking, particularly divergent thinking, which increase your chances of coming up with fresh new ideas and solutions for the problems you encounter in your daily life.
  • Appreciate the elements of listening which lead to understanding of what is actually being spoken
  • Understand what is being communicated by listening actively

Your Benefits:

  • Be Aware of Your Habitual Way of Thinking.
  • Appreciate The Existence of Multiple Ways of Thinking of an Issue
  • Develop New Approaches to Solve Old Problems


The workshop will be based on a mixture of mini lectures, and practical exercises, combined with debriefs.
