In times of economic hardship, one way for individuals and organisations to survive is to be more innovative than their competitors. Innovation requires creativity and insight to come up with new products, new solutions or new markets.
One of the wonders of the human brain is its ability to come up with completely novel ideas. This does not just happen – as anyone who has sweated over coming up with a new idea will know. However, sometimes, we are all capable of moments of insight where an idea or a solution comes to us out of the blue. What is it that happens in the brain during these moments? And how can we create this type of original thinking when we need it most?
In this workshop, we will explore different types of creativity and insight and determine what is happening in the brain when this happens. We will consider what state our brains should be in to give this the best chance of happening and will have fun with some practical exercises that give you a chance to increase your own creativity.
