Which Option is right for you?

Why this course

Creativity is a skill that can be developed. In fact, anyone can learn the key to unlocking innovative ideas. This program introduces fundamentals of creative problem solving that can be applied to any business (or personal) challenge. We’ll explore two distinct modes of thinking and how to help the brain get off its beaten path to come up with unique and valuable ideas. In addition to practice with specific techniques, we will hone in on what makes them work and why so it’s possible to successfully adapt them to diverse contexts. We will also experiment with approaches to idea assessment, selection and refinement that help ensure that innovative ideas reach successful implementation. Participants will leave with practical techniques and confidence to use them alone and with teams.

Tamara delivers an all-too-rare experience: a departure from business-as-usual. Through her leadership, process design, team facilitation, individual coaching, and seemingly limitless creativity, Tamara helped to launch a major strategy development effort at SRP that spanned departments and diverse subject matter. Her involvement was critical to the success of the initiative.”

Tamara has a knack for helping a person take a step back and look at different challenges or opportunities from a fresh perspective and she is great at providing the tools that I can use to do the same for others at my company. I'm 46 years old and hate training. I don't go...unless Tamara is running the sessions.”

Smart. Innovative. Collaborative. Fast. How Tamara manages to do all of those things at once is eternally impressive, and evidently just how she operates. Consistently. I have partnered with Tamara on a few projects and I've seen her in design, production and delivery mode. I would highly recommend!”
