“Every problem has in it the seeds of its own solution. If you don’t have any problems, you don’t get any seeds.” Norman Vincent Peale

Creativity can be nurtured with the right training and perception. Research done by psychologists and business people alike have discovered that most successful problem-solvers share the same process to identify problems and implement the solutions. This process works for any kind of problem, large or small.

This workshop will give participants an overview of the entire creative problem-solving process, and key problem-solving tools that they can use every day.

Join us, and be equipped with these effective tools!
