Creativity FUN-damentals
Brush up your creative chops — and have fun doing it!

4 x 75 minutes  •  8:30am daily

If you know little or nothing about creative problem solving or productive thinking (or would like a refresh), this Mind U is for you. Creativity FUN-damentals will get you up to speed on the key principles and key steps of the creative process in no-time flat.

But don’t think this is just another academic fly-over. Through a series of playful activities, you'll discover how each principle works to get you to a positive outcome. And because you'll be having fun, that learning will stick (that's what the neuroscientists tell us anyway).

The Skinny: 3 things you will do in this session

  • Gain a working knowledge of the super power used by the world's most creative people: separating their thinking into divergent and convergent phases (we call it "making lists and making choices")
  • Practice the skills you need to be intentional about which kind of thinking to do and when
  • Apply a step-by-step approach to produce the results you want: from identifying the real issues underlying your challenge to defining creative strategies to meet them
