Creativity & Innovation for Change
The human mind, once stretched by a new idea, never goes back to its original dimensions. - Oliver Wendell Holmes
The avalanche of powerful ideas that participants explore and create with the Creativity and Innovation for Change workshop causes an irreversible expansion of the mind. Once they are back on the job, they view things very differently. They overcome the paralysis by analysis syndrome. Their capacity to generate ideas on demand becomes one of their greatest assets.
Organizations need people who make waves, who don't do business as usual or accept the status quo. These are the people who will create new products and services, come up with breakthrough improvements, and achieve extraordinary accomplishments. These are the people who will challenge things as they are.
"People look at things as they are, and ask why? I dream of things that never have been and ask, why not?" - George Bernard Shaw
Asking "Why not?" is one of many idea-generation techniques participants learn in the Creativity and Innovation for Change training program.

The quiz turned out to be an ad for a Ford SUV. The ad says,
“If the answer wasn’t obvious, start thinking differently. Which is exactly the strategy behind the totally new Ford Expedition. Brilliant solutions are easy to see in hindsight.
