Member Training Program: Creative Thinking: How to find innovative solutions for your business challenges

“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” – Albert Einstein

Isn’t this quote true? Yet isn’t it true that we’re guilty of doing exactly this? So why not stop it now! Join Jeff Tan on March 1st as he gently adjusts your thinking patterns so that you can always find an innovative solution to any problem you face in the workplace (or in life).

What will Jeff share? A simple 5-Step process to help you discover:

  1. How to gain clarity on what exactly you’re trying to solve
  2. How to think outside the box by thinking inside the box
  3. How to plan and manage the inside the box solution
  4. How to execute the plan, review and revise it as you go along
  5. How to have fun doing all this (this is the most important step)

And of course, we will practice these five steps with real situations you share and some “usual” corporate challenges, e.g. retention, engagement, communication, leadership. What happens after this workshop is that you can apply the simple 5-step plan immediately and experience the difference yourself. Free yourself from the chains that hold you back and find innovative solutions!

Who should attend?
Middle/senior managers, directors, CEOs

About the trainer:

Jeff Tan "I’m not an innovation consultant nor am I a creative specialist. Instead, I’m an ex-military helicopter pilot who spent 26 years flying with the Singapore Air Force. Since coming to Shanghai in 2006, my overwhelming desire to find simple solutions to everyday challenges led me to Neuroscience research and how our brain works. This in turn helped me discover many easy to use, fun to learn, and super effective tips and tools to improve our lives. I regularly use all these tools myself, and have shared many with my friends and clients. On March 1st, please let me share one of these tools with you so that you can become a creative and innovative problem solver!"
