Creativity & Innovation Workshops

According to a report from the World Economic Forum, creativity is one of the most important and in-demand skills at work, along with complex problem solving and critical thinking (both skills that are intricately linked to creativity!)

Of course, creativity is also an essential component of innovation.

The good news is, everyone’s creativity “muscle” can be strengthened.

Prior to starting Creative Sandbox Solutions™, I spent fifteen years as a professional artist, followed by close to a decade as a “creativity instigator,” helping individuals past creative blocks.

I have a deep, personal understanding of what it means to deal with fear and resistance, and the mindsets and practices that help one lean into uncertainty, where all creativity happens.

One of my specialties and great joys is custom-designing workshops to pass these practices on to your team. (And yes, all of these workshops are delivered in virtual format.)

You’ve got a great team, but you’d like to see them push to the fearlessness side of things, rather than the “reasonable caution” side of things. You need a Creative Confidence workshop! Build your team’s creativity muscle by helping them learn to take more risks while at the same time fostering an environment of safety and trust.

Creative Confidence Workshops Help Teams:

  • Lean into uncertainty
  • Celebrate appropriate risk-taking
  • Build trust
  • Enhance openness
  • Improve communication
  • Deepen understanding and empathy

Your Underlying Questions:

  • How do we create an environment of safety and trust?
  • How do we get the team confident enough to just jump in? 
  • How can we feel empowered to go faster rather than thinking too much?
  • How do we create a common way of working together and a language for discussing it?

Ideas workshops are innovation sessions that tap the genius already present in the room while facilitating communication and deeper understanding through model building and storytelling.

Ideas Workshops Help Teams:

  • Generate piles of new product/service ideas in a short time (in a fun, new way!)
  • Hone in on the most useful and appropriate ideas and solutions
  • Create an action plan for how the chosen ideas will be brought to life

Your Underlying Questions:

  • How do we know if the problem we’re solving is actually the right one?
  • How do we ensure we tap the creativity of everyone in the room, not just the most vocal and outspoken folks?
  • How do we make sure we don’t narrow our choices too soon?
  • How do we know if we’re picking the best choice for the current situation?
  • How do we make sure we move forward from here?

You know you do great work, but you need a great story to communicate what you do, and make it relevant to your audience. Storytelling & communication workshops help you become a better storyteller, so the next time you need to share data, present a pitch, or just have a conversation, you’ll be more engaging and impactful.

Storytelling & Communication Workshops Help Teams:

  • Build trust
  • Enhance openness
  • Improve communication
  • Respect differences
  • Increase creativity
  • Deepen understanding and empathy

Your Underlying Questions:

  • How do I/we make what I/we do relevant to my/our audience, so they’ll actually want to listen?
  • How can I/my team be more engaging when talking about what we do?
  • How can we use the principles of storytelling to present or pitch more effectively?
