Creative Huddle for business
We work with businesses to help them develop creativity, critical thinking and problem solving capabilities through scalable programmes of learning
Why our services work
Creative thinking is not purely a God-given gift; it is a skill, which can therefore be taught. Genetic studies suggest that genes determine only 10% of the variability in creative potential, so there is a lot of room for development.
How we work with you
Scalable programmes of learning
Our programmes can be scaled from one team to an entire organisation. Programmes are a bespoke mix of interactive on-site workshops, one-to-one coaching and online learning.
WorkshopsOur workshops enable people to learn new things in a safe, stimulating environment. There is lots of discussion, trying new techniques, collaborating with others – all with a focus on helping participants to understand how to apply what they have learned to their daily roles.
Online learningOur practical and engaging online workshops in innovation, creativity and modern business skills will equip you with everything you need to stay innovative and collaborate effectively. We base our workshops within a number of popular online platforms to suit your preferences.
CoachingReal behaviour change takes time, and that’s why we take coaching seriously – online, by phone or in-person. We act as sounding board, confidence booster and insightful questioner to help you develop a creative approach over a period of weeks and months.
MeasurementOur 60-question diagnostic draws on the work of a number of internationally-respected and credible creativity researchers, and is primarily a tool for self-reflection, both for employee and employer – a revealing introduction to your creative strengths and areas for development.
A sample programme
Real change takes time and effort, so we recommend clients make a significant commitment to embedding creativity throughout their organisation. This twelve-month plan demonstrates how we combine workshops, online learning, coaching and measurement to create a multi-layered, ongoing plan that maintains momentum and freshness throughout its duration. Where possible we give you the tools and guidelines to carry out a significant proportion of the plan yourself – meaning it’s a cost-effective solution that feels like your own.
Case Study: ThinkBDA
We created a bespoke year-long programme for this ambitious, fast-growing digital design agency, consisting of face-to-face workshops, personal action plans and stretch assignments. Watch the video to see what they thought of the results.
Our key areas of learning
We’ve distilled a creative company’s DNA down to eight core elements. Each feeds off and influences the other.
Individual on-site workshops provide a flexible ad-hoc approach to solving pressing business problems or unlocking team creativity.
