Creative Thinking Training

Creativity and Innovation is a key skill which keeps employees ahead of the competition. When Horseway Business Services conducts a program on leadership training the other two main programs recommended are creativity training and problem solving training. Our Outbound Training is an outstanding program to train employees in an experientially manner and focuses on the topic of creative thinking. The globally expert on creativity techniques, Dr. Edward de Bono, beautifully puts together in brief the undeniable meaning of creative thinking: “Ideas are the currency of success. They separate you from your competition.”

What is Creativity Training?

Creative Thinking Training aids in thinking differently on a situation than usually approached. This is key to resolving professional hurdles, being productive and keeping one motivated.

Creative Thinking Skills assist to approach any given circumstance methodically and is a catalyst for renewed thinking in process, product and problem solving. This program empowers participants with the necessary tools for them to find solutions to stubborn problems and barriers that they might face.

Creativity Techniques

Creativity Training provides unconventional creativity techniques that help people escape from their usual patterns of thinking to produce enhanced results. The key is inventiveness, which can never happen if we cannot break out of established thinking patterns and explore new and unchartered paths.

“Creativity, as has been said, consists largely of rearranging what we know in order to find out what we do not know. Hence, to think creatively, we must be able to look afresh at what we normally take for granted.” George Kneller

Our creativity and innovation programs are useful for senior management, R&D and anyone who wants a disciplined approach (process) for innovation, idea generation, concept development, or a strategy to challenge the status quo, a cutting edge.
