2014YPOCreativityEvent-99

How leaders can build a truly creative culture.

“The most ambitious criminologists are not just satisfied with analyzing data from the past – they want to predict and control the future.”

MODERN DAY PROFILING is not only used to catch criminals, but predicative methodology is now being used in many areas to predict and control an environment. This interactive keynote turns the audience into detectives, and investigates what kills creative thinking in a fun Whodunit / CSI style session. It takes the 7 ‘Creative killer’ suspects and puts them through a line up and profiling process. A few suspects are then examined in-depth. Humorous facts and interesting research into neuroscience reveal how it is possible to overcome these blockages or at least avoid them, on individual, team and organizational levels. (A Special Asian cultural version of this session is available). Suspects include: Control, Fear, Pressure, Insulation, Narrow Mindedness, Apathy & Pessimism.

At the end of this session participants will be able to identify the key blocks to creative thinking, in themselves, teams the organization in general, and even their culture, and how they can be dealt with.
