In life and in work, we all experiences problems. The challenge is how to best go about solving the problems we encounter. Creative leaders, those who take a proactive approach to frame their problems as challenges and who separate ideation from evaluation to produce novel and useful ideas to address or respond to challenges, increase their overall effectiveness.

In this webinar, attendees will learn ground rules, experience the dynamic balance of divergent and convergent thinking, and leave more confident in their abilities to positively frame problems as challenges and arrive at creative solutions on demand!
