The Creative Connection™ program aims to develop creative thinking styles and actions in individuals and teams AND to help organizations innovate better through developing innovative systems and building an awareness of customer needs. The Creative Connection™ program is divided into three sections that can be run sequentially or independently of each other:

While The Creative Connection 1™ introduces ways to improve individual creative skills in, in The Creative Connection 2™ program participants are introduced to a tool teams can use to integrate talents and skills in coming up with creative solutions – culminating in a creative collaborative task. Through The Creative Connection 3™ program participants are introduced to a platform for building systematic organizational innovation and linking this to customer needs (outside innovation).

Participants are encouraged through the different parts of the program to discover their own individual creative potential and find ways to maximize this, and also recognize the different creative perspectives within a team and organization and then use these to the best advantage. A feature of the program is the unique experience of the ‘THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY™‘ simulation exercise. Also included are inspiring video clips and practical case studies which provide ideas and direction for action. The program can finish with some solid business facilitation where groups are led through a creative process looking at issues such as actualizing creativity.

The Creative Connection™ program utilizes a unique ‘cogwheels’ process which shows the essential interconnection between individual creative processes, team problem solving strategies, and organizational structures that support innovation.
