Heavy challenges require
strong creative muscles.

Creativity is one of the most in-demand skills for today’s leaders, yet often the least supported throughout their career. And creativity is very much like a muscle — it gets weaker when you don’t exercise it regularly, and much stronger when you do. This bootcamp will give you the tools, techniques and creative confidence to take your solution creating to the next level.

How to know if this workshop
is for your team:


You’re looking for a competitive edge for your leadership team and your company overall.


Your competition is beating you to the solutions and innovations that are growing their business.


Your leaders feel insecure about calling themselves creative, lack confidence to push for new solutions, and struggle to inspire their people.

Key Outcomes

✔︎  Real creative solutions to your company’s real issues

Instead of hypotheticals, your team will apply their creative muscles to your company’s real challenges — resulting in both learning and valuable new approaches.

✔︎  Turbo-charged problem solving

The skills, tools and confidence to uncover innovative solutions to complex issues.

✔︎  Comfort outside of your comfort zone

It’s the most reliable way to grow and thrive in today’s world of rapid-change.

✔︎  See opportunities others don’t

You’ll develop solutions and unique approaches that other people (and other companies) haven’t dreamed of yet.

✔︎  Work becomes more fun and engaging

And this kicks off a virtuous circle of benefits to both the organization and bottom line.

✔︎  Leaders who inspire

People are attracted to leaders who exude creative confidence. They create energy that can’t be contained.

✔︎  Build a stronger, more creative company culture

Creativity doesn’t live in a single department. It’s at the core of innovative and energized company cultures.

What people are saying:

“This experience didn't just add to my skillset — it changed my whole mindset. I'm seeing opportunities everywhere now!”

“The best way to improve what you're currently doing is by stopping for a bit and looking at what you've been doing, how you've been doing it, and how you could be doing it differently. Today was one of those kinds of days.”

“This isn’t like most trainings. It didn’t teach us how to be better at something; it taught us how to be better at everything. It's like learning to see in color when you've been seeing in black and white.”

“This workshop just blew a hole through my ‘creativity imposter syndrome.’ I’m so excited to put this into action.”
