12 Dec Why a Creativity Think Tank Matters
For the past 3 months a group of Calgarians have come together to learn and use the extra-ordinary creative problem solving techniques of Dr. Win Wenger. After studying directly from Dr. Wenger in May of 2014 to become a certified “Project Renaissance” facilitator I was given the opportunity to start such a think tank and finally had the opportunity to get it going this past October.
It has been one of the most satisfying projects in my professional career to date. Here is why:
- I’ve witnessed participants discover insights that they didn’t expect to find
- There has been positive feedback on how their insights tend to keep coming several days after the workshop in part by using their Idea Butterfly Nets
- I’ve had further opportunities to improve my skills as a facilitator
- The new learning about Win’s fantastic techniques as I teach them
- I’ve contributed to building a new community that is now well positioned to tackle problems together (and that’s what we will do)
Everybody has problems and challenges that they’d like to solve. What happens in these sessions is so special because most people do not inherently know how to solve problems using their unconscious minds. However, once exposed to the powerful techniques so generously shared by Dr. Wenger, it is true that anyone can gain insights from using their own visual imagery and unconscious minds. It’s just wonderful to guide someone from a place of skepticism to a place of joy and insight with these processes.
Join us in Calgary on January 13th at the Visual Imagery Creative Problem Solving Think Tank if you’d would like to to learn some very handy, simple tools to solve your own problems as we begin to address greater issues together. It will be a very interactive and productive 3 hour evening event.
My deepest gratitude goes out to Dr. Win Wenger who sincerely offers his vast body of research and work to the world for the greater good of humanity. It is my honor to offer my support by hosting this think tank. Please contact me if you’d like to know how you can support him.
A creativity think tank matters because it enables people to better utilize and experience their own creative abilities. In this safe space people solve not only their own problems and develop their ideas but are given the opportunity to become part of a community of people who genuinely want to make the world a better place.
For me it has been a full and wonderful year of living and learning and I intend to reach and help many more people do the same in 2015.
Happy, safe holidays!!
Thank you for reading these thoughts of mine.
