Developing a Culture of Creativity at your Organization
November 3, 8:30am - 12:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Building 37 - iLab
This highly interactive workshop will explore critical aspects of creativity and how to inspire creativity in your organization.
Much of what we might believe about creativity is misleading and often disempowering. We understand creativity in artists, but what about everyone else? When do they need to be creative? How creative do you have to be to design a new business strategy, then communicate your vision effectively? How do you negotiate with someone who doesnâ€™t seem to understand what you are proposing? How are these challenges different from inventing a new product?
While key for innovation, creativity is often misunderstood. The good news is that creativity is a skill that can be enhanced in many ways that are fun and easy to learn. Through collaborative learning, this course will help you broaden your toolset and accelerate mastery. In addition, this course will help you discover how you can inspire a culture of creativity at your organization.
Presented in collaboration with UHM iLab, UHM Community Design Center, and UH Office of Innovation and Commercialization.
