Whole-brain creativity workshops provide engaging, inspiring, online interactive learning experiences designed to help your team navigate disruptive change, develop bold ideas, solve problems and innovate
While robots are great at solving problems and optimizing existing ideas, organizations most need employees who can imagine and create innovative solutions for tomorrow.
Develop the creativity, innovation and leadership capabilities you need to adapt to change, disrupt habitual habits of thought, stay competitive, improve business performance and make a positive difference in the world. We customize each workshop so that you can work on real challenges that add value to your business.
We take a whole-brain approach to creativity and innovation, leveraging arts-based learning as a catalyst for creativity, and design thinking as a strategy for innovation. Creativity requires whole-brain thinking; right-brain imagination, artistry and intuition, plus left-brain logic and planning.
Techniques and methodologies are drawn from business, art, science and design. The exercises are designed to effect shifts in perception, develop creative mindsets, and reframe challenges in a safe and fun atmosphere.
Learn how to generate, analyse, evaluate and implement ideas using the four intelligences of whole-brain creativity
- Analytical intelligence includes how you frame a problem. Also how you evaluate an idea, including critical thinking.
- Artistic intelligence includes using your imagination, visual thinking, and how you envision possibilities.
- Relational intelligence includes how your idea connects or impacts others within a system. Also how you collaborate and co-create with others.
- Operational intelligence includes planning and organizing; how you turn an idea into action.

- Linda’s ability as a facilitator of using insights from art to advance leadership and business is world class.

Our company has a mandate to accelerate business growth through innovation and in order to reach our targets we recognised the need for skills development in creativity. We asked Linda Naiman to conduct a creativity workshop at our global meeting for our Business Unit team of chemists, engineers and marketers, to inspire creative thinking, introduce idea generation methodologies, and develop a set of tangible ideas for new products and services. Linda offered us a challenging, unusual approach to creativity, which was highly valuable for me. While some skeptics in the audience made it a real challenge for Linda, she mastered it extremely well and provided all of us with highly valuable insights. We now have a set of principles and practices for fostering creativity and innovation that we are implementing at our Business Unit. I recommend Linda Naiman to companies looking for effective ways to cultivate creativity in their people.
