What you will learn:
Imagine how your organization could meet its mission and improve productivity if only your employees had a deeper understanding of what motivates them, what holds them back, and how they could work in harmony with others. A new model of creativity—The 5 Creative Types—will allow them to do just that! Each person who attends this course will have the chance to identify their creative type and learn how to harness the strengths and curb the counter-productive tendencies associated with that type. The five creative types are:
- A-Lister (accomplishment and recognition)
- Artisan (process and collaboration)
- Game Changer (innovation and disruption)
- Sensitive Soul (emotion and perception), and
- Activist (advocacy and action)
This course, based on Meta’s book and TEDx talk, What’s Your Creative Type?, will include a talk, followed by discussion and facilitated group sessions, where employees will learn how to lead and collaborate with others who each have something different—but equally valuable—to offer. Ultimately, this course will benefit individuals, teams, and your organization.
