North Central Indiana SHRM: "Creative Problem Solving/Using Creativity"

JoDee Curtis | Wabash, Indiana | September 20, 2018

“Who, me? But, I’m not at all creative!” How often do you hear those words? Studies show that most adults use no more than a fraction, perhaps 10%, of their creative potential each day. Creativity is not something we’re born with; it isn’t a talent or a strength; and it’s rarely a requirement for hire. But it certainly is necessary to achieve success and excellence in your work! The good news is that creativity is a skill that can be learned and developed. A combination of knowledge, imagination and evaluation, creativity flows from the right information, combined with the natural talents of every individual. Through this workshop, you will tap into your unique creative potential and learn how to put creativity to work, especially in the area of problem solving.
