A two-day hands-on course in NeuroCreativity tools and techniques

“To thrive in today’s innovation-driven economy, workers need [...] competencies like collaboration, creativity and problem-solving...” - (World Economic Forum)

It is now well-recognised that skills like creativity are essential for organisations to compete, thrive and grow in the 21st century. In an increasingly automated world, the ability to creatively solve complex problems and think out of the box are going to be the key skills people need to excell in the future. 

About The Course
The Managing the Creative Mindset Course is an internationally-recognised creativity training course with a solid foundation in the neuroscience of creativity: in other words, the science of how the brain works when we conceive new ideas and solve complex problems. CINC researchers have spent the last decade investigating how the brain works when people are creative. This knowledge, combined with insights from psychology and behavioural science, informs the tools and techniques we use to enhance creative thinking. Once we understand the cognitive processes involved wíth creativity, we can increase our creative capacity.

Course Description

To achieve this, participants are first introduced to the underlying mechanisms of what is commonly known as creativity.
