Creativity facilitators are the orchestra conductors of team creativity, arguably one of the most vital members of your team. Without them – and the delicate pair of hands they bring to your brainstorming sessions – creativity meetings can quickly collapse. Facilitation is such an important skill and is well within the grasp of so many people, and yet most companies take the ‘let’s just have a meeting’ approach, or pick a random, untrained facilitator, often with disappointing results.
Our brilliant brainstorm training will ensure that you become a trained brainstorm facilitator who can foster trust and openness, involve everyone, adapt to different personalities and make it fun and OK to take risks. They help ideas to bounce around the room, picking up momentum as they go – and make brainstorming rewarding for everyone. We recommend this course to follow our Creative Ninjas training for those who want to lead the creative charge in their business.

Who is it for: intelligent, diplomatic members of the team who would enjoy/benefit from becoming a creative lynchpin for the group.

By the end: participants will be able to facilitate group-brainstorming sessions that include and engage the whole team and result in a steady flow of fresh ideas.
We use proven brainstorm facilitation techniques and combine these with our understanding of group dynamics and the psychology behind creativity and innovation. This is a highly interactive and experiential brainstorm training session where you will learn the art of facilitating through the following methods. Learning by:
- Feedback (giving and receiving)
- Reading (after the workshop you will have a meaty 60 page expert resource book to digest at your leisure)
