Facilitating Innovation to Achieve Your Goals

Bill is one of the best facilitators I’ve ever been involved with. Not only his knowledge on the subject and tools, but he also shared with us his knowledge on other things not part of the program (Camtasia, blogs, different types of things they are trying on their websites) – this was above what was expected as part of the course.
I think last week was the beginning of something great for the company. It demonstrated the power and potential of the deliberate creative thinking techniques not only in relation to our divisional functional area but to other divisions. I see their application being of even greater benefit in exploring new products and services, and growing revenues. … Tony Fedorowicz, Supply Chain Manager
Professional facilitation allows creativity on demand while maintaining a clear focus on the outcome you want to achieve. Exposure to creative thinking methods also encourages participants to see things in a new light and motivates them to think, talk, act and work in new and innovative ways.
Mindwerx facilitations are always tailored to the specific needs of the team, however typically our facilitations make use of methods such as:
- Imagineering - to begin with the end in mind and engineer a path forward
- Focusing creative energy - to ensure the focus has been well articulated
- Radiant Thinking - with Mind Mapping® or MindGenius computer aided thinking
- Parallel Thinking - using thinking frameworks like de Bono's Six Thinking Hats® and collaboration technology such as Zing group systems
- Lateral Ideation Tools - to generate new useful ideas that break the thinking pattern
- Idea Harvesting and Design methods - to turn ideas into outcomes
