Many people mistakenly believe that creativity is a talent reserved for a select few artists and writers. In reality, creativity is something that exists within all of us. UNthink is a keynote experience that helps individuals and organizations unlock their creative potential and push beyond traditional thought patterns and levels of performance.
Through the UNthink program, participants learn how to reframe their thinking and open themselves up to new creative actions. By incorporating this approach into their daily work, employees can find renewed passion and see how their talents and energies can be valuable to the organization. UNthink helps individuals view their lives as blank canvases full of limitless opportunities for creating their own masterpieces.
While many people recognize the value of creativity in business, they may not know how to create a framework that supports innovation. This is where the paradox of creativity comes in: structure is actually what allows for freedom. Even the most creative minds need a certain amount of order and attention to detail in order to have the space and discipline to create. By putting structures in place, businesses can provide their employees with the freedom and support they need to be innovative and successful.
