Creative Thinking for Teams

When we’re brainstorming, we don’t always manage to honour new ideas (no matter how good they are). Shooting down, discomfort and awkwardness are the death of creativity.

Working collaboratively with others requires a set of new tricks.

This workshop will explore why this is difficult for human brains, and also step into the practical steps you can take to foster more group creativity.

The workshop will utilise the core concepts of improv comedy, such as:

  • Listening and observation skills
  • Finding inspiration and starting initiations
  • Consciously not planning (waiting for the moment)
  • Creating characters (where do they come from)
  • Connecting with the group
  • Asking questions for yes answers
  • ‘Yes, And‘ idea building and giving gifts.
