Think your creative but not innovative? Worry that you're neither? Challenged to help clients find their creative edge?
Today's work places are desperate for increased innovation but they tend to strangle any hopes for it by the nature of how work gets done. Using a brief Introduction on the ideas from Collective Genius (book by Hill & Brandeau) relative to "How leaders effectively lead for innovation," we will uncover some general tenets to provide a foundation for our work with type.
As an exploratory process we will break into type groupings to work with clients or relationships we hope to bring greater insight to.
Following some general information on how types tend to innovate we will run several exercises in order to confirm, challenge or build on this information. This will enable everyone to get more intimate with the "Ideascape:" how innovative ideas are categorized; and the "Typescape:" the types of people that are attracted to certain categories of ideas.
You will leave with a greater ability to assist clients in navigating teams, projects and processes; and in deciding how and who might work together to effectively bring about innovation; and you'll add another tool to your type toolkit enabling you to be in the conversation about innovation from an objective standpoint.
Finally, you will give yourself and others the confidence of knowing you are indeed innovative.
