Online Masterclass - Critical Creativity: The Most Undervalued Leadership Skill NEW

#Covid-19 update: This event will now be a live online masterclass, with details provided below. Delegate numbers will be similar to a face-to-face event, enabling participants to have interaction with the speaker and work with other delegates (for example via group work and online polls).

A fully completed and authorised nomination form is required for this event. Those who have previously registered need take no action (other than completing any pre-work). All participants will be sent joining instructions explaining how to access the event online.


The business world doesn’t lack knowledge or expertise – it lacks the imagination of what to do with it. Thinking differently and creating new ideas adds huge value. Skills like creativity, deep thinking and problem-solving are in great demand.

Do we recognise the importance of creativity? Innovation requires two modes of thinking. We use one a lot: analysis, judgement and decision-making. How can we equally use the less recognised mindset: possibility and options?

This interactive workshop can help create parity across the skillset – needed if creativity is to have a measurable impact on business.

Key words

The primary theme is INNOVATION and the secondary theme is CHANGE.

It is relevant to the development of Imagination, Innovation, Creativity, Mindset, Skillset, Decision-making.
