Description
When it comes to innovating, we hold ourselves back. Why? That’s the way our minds are wired.

Inside each of us is an internal editor that does an important job: it edits what we think, say, and write, as we think, say, and write it, so we sound smart and consistent to other people. Our internal editor helps us fit into society. We say and do what’s expected. Most of the time, there’s nothing wrong with having an editor; it’s gotten us far in life.

Problems arises, though, when we encounter a situation that doesn’t call for our usual ways of thinking. Maybe we have a strategy problem that’s boxed us in for months, or we’re stumped at how to triple our team’s productivity so we can meet a fast-approaching window of opportunity. How, then, do we come up with solutions for problems like these -- when our customary answers have failed us?

Enter the “Innovation On Demand” webinar, which teaches participants a series of liberating thinking and writing techniques that push internal editors into the background temporarily, so they can reach a level of thinking that’s more original and resourceful than can be reached through normal means.

While using these techniques, the innovative ideas will come fast and furious, and will rank with the most inventive work the participants have ever done. The new problem-solving skills the participants learn can be used to solve challenges affecting any part of the organization. What's more, the brainstorming meetings they hold far more inspiring, creative, and productive.

Participants will be more engaged in the workplace, because they’ll have tools at the ready that will allow them to make a bigger difference in the organization.
