“Innovation is the only way to win”

Steve Jobs

In today’s competitive landscape the old solutions are not enough.

People want new, they want different, they better – they want innovation.

But what is innovation?  And where does it come from?

The Innovative Brain workshop will delve deep into the latest research from the brain and behavioural sciences to explore the sources and origins of innovation, and give leaders clear steps to enhance their own innovation capacity and that of their organisation.

The Neuroscience of Creativity
Creativity is an innately human activity.  It is what we all do – as human beings we are hard-wired to be creative.     Yet where does it come from?  Once upon a time people spoke of creativity as being the result of “divine intervention” leading to “Eureka!” moments as a great breakthrough came to us.  But now we know better!  This session will explore the latest findings from neuroscience on the sources and basis of creativity, helping participants understand how they can enhance their own personal creativity and those of the teams and organisations they lead.

How personality and environment shape creativity
Is there such a thing as a creative personality?  And are some people more creative than others?  Through a detailed discussion of personality and the impact of context and environment, participants will explore the latest research into personality and learn about the key personality traits and contextual factors including leadership and teams that support creativity.

Building an innovative organisation
When it comes to innovation some organisations have it, some don’t… or so it seems.  Building on the latest research into leadership, teams and innovation, this session will explore the key aspects of innovative organisations and explain why some organisations always seem to be leading the pack.  The session will equip leaders with the tools to enhance innovation and creativity in their own organisations, making a step-change for the better.

Guest Speaker

The Innovative Brain workshop will feature a discussion with a leading Irish creative figure, exploring the creative process first hand from initial idea through refinement and development to the eventual successful end result.  Details to be announced shortly!
