Each of us approaches problem solving differently. Why do some people just get you while others annoy you with their inability to move on (or slow down) as you need? Generally, we would avoid working much with that other person, but research suggests that this person may be exactly what’s needed to solve our problem. Using a well-known assessment tool, we will attempt to understanding your particular approach and how to effectively work with other team members, particularly if they don’t share your thinking preference. Within the context of teams, we will also discuss creative environments and map our own against the presented list.
In summary, this Open Diversity will be about:
- Identify your preferred way of clarifying, generating, developing and implementing ideas
- Understanding FourSight, an assessment tool that is backed by 50 years of academic research and 16 years of scientific validation
- Leveraging the power of the creative process and learning how to excel at each phase
- 10 dimensions of creative environment as developed by Swedish Organizational Psychologist Dr. Göran Ekvall
