Collaboration requires more than simply putting a bunch of smart people together in one room. Truly successful collaboration comes from the creative chemistry of a group and the blending of everyone’s ideas and concepts to create the desired outcome.
In order to generate the most innovative contributions, team members need to bring not only their good ideas, but also the right mindframe to the table.
Through the process taking a real-world problem and running through a series of creativity and innovation exercises to develop and execute upon an action-plan, the team will learn and actively apply best practices in creative collaboration for optimum team productivity and output.
By using the tenets of Combine and Play, participants will learn how to become adaptable and responsive to the suggestions of others,
combining ideas using play, and learning effective techniques for tapping into a group’s creative brilliance to reach higher levels of collective creative output and performance.
When these practices are incorporated into a company’s culture, it creates an environment where team members can more easily collaborate to produce and apply innovations in a meaningful and permanent way for themselves, their team, and their entire organization.
