Banking on Innovation
High Impact Creative Thinking Training
You know the drill: Competition's up. Profits are down. And everything you're doing is changing. It's the 21st century and most of us are reeling — out of breath, out of time, and out of what's left of our minds. It's business as unusual whether we like it or not — and it's time to do something different. But what? And, more specifically, how?
Enter Banking On Innovation — a unique, creative thinking training that gives absolutely anyone in your organization a unique opportunity to step back, slow down, think big, and become a creative force for positive change.
This highly interactive 1-2 day session is suitable for both intact work teams and open enrollment groups. And its impact doesn't end after the happy sheets are filled out. We offer graduates a wide range of post-workshop support to keep their commitment to innovate alive and well
