Today’s increasingly complex business environment requires leaders that can get people engaged in thinking together innovatively and productively. Learn how to execute specific thinking skills by following a specific, easy to understand, step by step process which synchronizes members’ diverse problem solving styles and flows seamlessly through generation, conceptualization, optimization and implementation. Innovative leaders recognize and eliminate destructive thinking practices, and use advanced creative tools to work with others to frame and re-frame issues into solvable challenges as part of their everyday language of innovation.
