Event description
Boosting creativity in teams and workshops - how to unlock the creativity in teams and workshops to generate breakthrough ideas

About this event

Masterclass - Advanced Creative Thinking

Ideas are the currency of any customer/citizen experience, innovation, technology, people or transformation program, yet most organisations and teams aren’t purposely set up to encourage creativity to flourish. In fact, often the way they are set up has the opposite effect and unintentionally kills creativity.

The masterclass provides a deep dive into the key barriers to individual and team creativity and how to overcome them. Plus, how to design and facilitate the ideation phase and workshops, generate breakthrough ideas, harvest ideas for potential and turn these into experimentation briefs. Participants get lots of opportunity to practice, and receive plenty of feedback and coaching.

In this interactive and experiential workshop Nathan Baird shares his 20+ years of practicing, refining, honing, leading and training creative thinking and ideation on 100s of design and innovation projects and 1000s of workshops across multiple industries and continents.

We'll provide you a learn by doing experience of:

  • A demystification of creativity, ideation and innovation and how they help organisations succeed
  • An understanding of the barriers to individual and team creativity and how to overcome them
  • How to think creatively to generate new solutions and lead this in others
  • A practical tool-kit, mindset, language and framework for creative problem-solving
  • An increased energy and confidence around creativity and ideation
  • The ability and confidence to lead creative thinking in any situation
  • Comprehensive understanding of the crucial elements of creative mastery: beliefs, behaviours, lateral thinking, state and space
  • How to pick the winners, harvest ideas for potential and craft experimentation briefs
  • Lots of practice doing and facilitating ideation
  • How to create the right environment to lead and practice creativity on an every day basis
  • Fun, engaging and good networking!

“10 out of 5. So well presented, so interactive, awesome learning environment created. Took my knowledge of innovation from 1% to wanting to be creative and innovative in every step I take!” National Coach, Australian Institute of Sport

"I have been involved in a number of innovation training programmes and projects run by Nathan and his team. I have found their tools, techniques and the way in which they approach innovation and creativity to be both enlightening and effective. Nathan challenges your thinking and teaches you amazing techniques to unlock new insights and ideas.” Product Manager, Heineken

“Nathan supported our Foresight work at the ATO in 2020, including on the co-design and facilitation of the inaugural Strategic Foresight Program for the ATO. We simply could not have developed the program without Nathan's insight and extensive experience in the innovation space!” Director of the Foresight Domain, Australian Tax Office
