Organizations increasingly see self-directed teams as a strategic differentiator and their most important resource for developing sustained innovation. In a global environment characterized by hyper-competition, complexity, ambiguity, and volatility, organizational leaders are called upon to be facilitators of change, beginning with their teams. Organizations are best positioned to innovate when leaders and teams learn how to cultivate and maximize their diversity of thinking, which requires insight into individual creative motivation and expression.

This immersive workshop examines the relationship between the Creative Problem Solving preferences of clarification, ideation, development, and implementation, the Social Style behaviors of assertiveness, responsiveness, and versatility, and the principles of organizational agility. 

What will you learn or experience as a result of this program or session?
  • We will deep dive into recent research on the linkage between thinking style and behavioral styles. 
  • You will discover a radical new way to build agile teams.
  • You will learn how your team’s natural creative rhythm and flow can be enhanced by properly flexing communication styles during the collaborative process.
How might the content of this program or session change your perceptions, habits, ways of working, or view on the world?
  • You will come away with a richer understanding of your creative preferences and those of your team, and how those preferences  influence people’s communication styles -- for better or worse
How might you apply what you learn or experience in this program or session?
  • You will leave with a cheat sheet of behavioral and communication “tells” to interpret positive and toxic conflict in the wild.
