Course introduction

Ever wanted to be more creative? If so, this course is the perfect starting point.

From financial planning to garden design, home decoration to meal planning, you already draw on your creativity to help you problem-solve almost every day.

But how can you do this more effectively at work?

This course will guide you through a self-assessment of your current creativity to discover your strengths and weaknesses. Then, through a range of practical exercises, you’ll learn how to generate ideas using divergent thinking and select the best ones using convergent thinking.

You’ll also apply these skills to real problems at work, nurture your creative mind; discover ways of building confidence when sharing your ideas, and pick up invaluable techniques to help you work creatively with others.
