Creativity Training

More will be invented in the next 20 years than in all of human history. Creativity and innovation are more vital now than ever before.

Collaborate and Create’s Creativity Training provides a system for structuring creativity, removing the barriers to creative thought and igniting innovation. The system is simple enough to learn in a day and use forever. In Collaborate and Create’s Creativity Training sessions, participants quickly build creative intelligence by doing creative work, not just listening to experts talk about it. By systematically separating creative and analytical thought and combining them with fun and competition, Collaborate and Create’s Creativity Training promotes wildly creative thinking, the key to innovation.

Collaborate and Create customizes our Creativity Training to meet each company’s needs, with sessions ranging from two hours to half day to multiple days.
