Abstract:
How many of us have said “I am not the creative kind…”, especially when faced with tasks that require a degree of creativity. The fact of the matter is, creativity, in the business world at least, can be honed with awareness, knowledge and practice. It is a skill which can be learnt at any age. Once you have learned the prerequisites and understand how it applies to you, the next step would be to organise the thinking methodically, and then move on to the action phase. And this is precisely what this programme is going to help you do, and it will be a lesson learnt for life.
