Innovation: Transforming Ideas into Solutions 


Innovation is vital to a company’s success and very survival. But sometimes, innovation is placed on the back burner while companies focus on optimizing processes and perfecting current products and services. Even when we implicitly recognize the importance of innovation, we can feel overwhelmed and unsure of where to start. 

After this workshop, you will be able to identify and encourage idea fluency and facilitate an Innovation Process that moves from ideas to solutions.  

  Participants will be able to:  

  • Become proactive instead of reactive to address changing business needs.  
  • Encourage idea fluency with others.  
  • Create a safe environment for the exchange and flow of ideas.  
  • Use the innovation process for problem solving and continuous improvement.  

Primary Competency Categories: Creative Thinking, Adaptability, Change Management, Leadership
