GENERATING TRANSFORMATIONAL IDEAS THAT DELIVER BREAKTHROUGH INNOVATION

 
Why are some people consistently creative and others strikingly unoriginal? In this session, you’ll understand the various myths we apply when trying to encourage creativity and replace them with well-researched facts instead. Using insights from the wealth of research on organizational creativity, you’ll receive practical implications and realistic strategies for encouraging innovation. (This session is based on David’s book The Myths Of Creativity.)

David's approach was well received and he was very engaging. He clearly had done his homework about the work the participants are involved in, and that allowed folks to make those direct connections to their own work.ā€¯
