Agile Thinking for the Win! How to Unleash Creative Solutions
Yesterday’s answers can’t solve today’s issues. So in these times when we are challenged to work with smaller budgets, reach more clients, and present new ideas, nimble thinking is required. Learn how to tap a well-spring of creative solutions through the world of Improv Comedy, and how to connect that mindset to practical insights for success in ever-changing work environments. Participants will have a chance to practice the skills needed to power-up their Agile Thinking, and learn how to encourage it in others.
