Helping organizations and employees think outside the box so they can work more productively and effectively, and stay ahead of the curve in the workplace.

Breakthrough Creativity

by David D. Knapp, PhD

Creativity is not something a person either has or doesn’t have. Nor is it synonymous with artistic abilities. The fact is that EVERYONE is creative – but not in the same way. Just as there are different types of intelligence (traditional IQ, emotional intelligence or EQ, and social intelligence or SI) there are multiple types of creativity. To that end, this highly interactive course will help participants discover, develop, and apply their individual creativity style in a variety of workplace settings.

Upon completion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Understand creativity and the impact of creative talent differences
  • Leverage their individual creativity style strengths, while compensating for its associated weaknesses, as identified by the Breakthrough Creativity Profile
  • Practice effective brainstorming techniques
  • Apply the Five-Step Creative Problem-Solving Process
  • Engage in more creative problems solving and decision making

Kickstart Your Podcast: How to Get Your Podcast from Idea to Launch

by Elaine Appleton Grant

The podcast industry wasn't even an industry a few years ago – it was this quirky, independent thing that hobbyists were doing. Now it's a full-blown media industry that will soon be worth more than a billion dollars. What does it look like? What roles do various kinds of people and organizations play? Many companies who have a need to more effectively reach their audience are trying to figure out how podcasting fits into their plans. They know it's important but they don't understand the medium.

This interactive workshop, created especially for organizations that are ready to move forward with their own podcast program, helps communications departments and marketing teams get their podcast from idea to launch. Elaine guides participants through the steps and techniques necessary to create and operate a successful podcast campaign.

One More Shot: Why Successful Businesses are Changing at Light Speed and How You Can Too

by Elaine Appleton Grant

This workshop helps participants understand the light-speed at which businesses are changing. It's no longer just "nice" to innovate – it's imperative. But we are all individual human beings and change is inherently hard.

As a journalist, Elaine has covered entrepreneurship and business for three decades. Over the last few years, she’s deeply studied corporate rivalries and the ways in which competition and cultural transformation demands constant innovation. Elaine provides real-life examples of the fundamental changes she is seeing in the workplace. Based on those lessons, she shows participants how to navigate the messy but exhilarating process of reinventing themselves. And she shows leaders how to help their employees and teammates do so as well. She draws on her experience hosting One More Shot, her own podcast program, to give participants proven strategies for overcoming challenging but predictable obstacles to change – whether it's change they are seeking or change that is thrust upon them.
