Mindsetxercise: Workout for the Creative Mindsets (Full Day Program)

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In this energetic and laughter-filled workshop, David Eyman will help you rekindle the flame under each of four (well... five really) mindsets of creativity. You’ll explore your innate Curiosity (with a bit of Empathy in-tow), Tolerating Ambiguity, Divergent Thinking, and Resilience. Each with activities and debrief / reflection to engage and crystalize learning outcomes.
Social media gold: Bring your phone! We’ll be doing a few exercises that include insta-moments you’ll want to share. The foundations of creativity are in our approach / mindsets. Our knowledge of how we are doing on each mindset (self-assessment) can enhance our creative habits. This session is designed to help us discover how we are doing by presenting us with novel self-awareness.

(At Least) Three Key Takeaways:
  • Self awareness in each of the four selected mindsets 
  • Enhanced curiosity (and empathy), divergent thinking skills, tolerance of ambiguity, and resilience 
  • Fun and productive way to look at our habits, tools to work with, exercise our habits 
  • Take the exercises and outcomes back to work and personal lives 
  • See others with recharged empathy muscles and react with divergent thinking skills learned through storytelling for ideation
