Cracking the Code
A "talkshop" on workplace creativity
If you feel that the constant call to innovate is backing you into an ever-tighter corner, here's a session to help you come out swinging.
This multimedia talkshop introduces the principles and practices of imaginative problem solving, including:
How to use questions to unlock divergent thinking
Tools and techniques for generating ideas
Sure-fire ways to avoid embarrassing anyone, including introverts
You'll walk away, ready to put the principles into practice.
Designed as 90-minute session suited for a boardroom or lecture room, Cracking the Code can be scaled up or down, from 60-minutes to a full day. The Basadur Profile online diagnostic on problem solving preferences complements Cracking the Code.
The speaker is Kate Hammer, a maverick based in London, known internationally as a creative facilitator, commercial storyteller and courage coach. Kate mentors in the startup scene in London and in Europe.
One of less than a dozen women in the Top 40 Innovation Blogger list, Kate writes online about imagination, creative courage, comfort zones and story as a design practice. She co-invented KILN's IdeaKeg, a 3-dimensional "magazine" of trends and cultural insights (featured in Trend Driven Innovation published by Wiley in 2015).
