The Creating Innovation Series includes diverse sessions that explore the role of art, design, and creativity in fostering innovation. The Indiana University East Center for Leadership Development will host an upcoming workshop on Decoding Creativity from 8:30a.m. to noon Thursday, March 6, in the Whitewater Hall Community Room. Registration is available online.
Every day challenges from the simple to the complex are faced, bringing a need to think flexibly, strategically and often collaboratively, and to be innovative. FourSight is an assessment tool that measures preference for each one of the four thinking styles that are essential to innovation. The workshop will provide participants with their thinking style and how to interact better with other creative styles to enhance creative output personally, and as part of a team.
There is a fee of $100 for this workshop to be paid at registration. A light breakfast is included.
The presenter for this workshop is Julia Roberts, president and founder of Lemony Fresh Ideas, a consultancy devoted to helping clients squeeze the most out of their innovation efforts. Roberts works as a facilitator, trainer, and certified creativity coach to juice up meetings and bring about fresh thinking.
