Redrawing the box – a creative approach to creative thinking and thinking outside the box

Thinking inside the box is no longer good enough; thinking outside the box is cliché.

The organisations that are redrawing the box are the ones making their mark. Getting stuck in the same old patterns of thinking stifles innovation.

By attending this course, you’ll:

  • Get thinking about how you think
  • Explore the power and untapped wealth of your unconscious mind
  • Discover exciting new ways of making your imagination work for you – and for your organisation.

Experience creative non-brainstorming, lateral thinking techniques and brain science – and walk away with great new ways to unlock your creativity.

New box, new tricks.

We'll run this course for you at your own offices or at The Glove Factory Studios, Holt. Prices depend on venue and numbers attending.

Knowing me, knowing you – personality and conflict

Same world, different planet. That’s how it can feel working with people who aren’t Like Us.

Misunderstandings between different personality types can lead to conflict and relationship breakdown – with a dramatic impact on team morale and business performance. Using the Strength Deployment Inventory (SDI), a tool designed to help self-awareness and development, this course will give you a deeper understanding of yourself and those around you. You will learn to become more creative in your relationships, build rapport with colleagues and get the best out of other people. You will return to the workplace with your impression of those around you no longer blurred by the filters through which you used to view them. Same planet, new world.

We'll run this course for you at your own offices or at The Glove Factory Studios, Holt. Prices depend on venue and numbers attending.

Presenting ideas

All too often we have great ideas, but we fall down when it comes to communicating them to others.

It may be nerves, it may be a pre-programmed notion that we are ‘no good’ at public speaking, or it may be that it’s just easier to sit back and let someone else do the talking.

This course will immerse participants in the experience of speech-making. Fun, stretching and creative, you’ll get loads of ideas on how to structure and deliver a winning speech.

And take the con out of confidence.

We'll run this course for you at your own offices or at The Glove Factory Studios, Holt. Prices depend on venue and numbers attending.

Are you with me? – persuading and influencing

How do you move someone from A to B, when they’d gladly stay right where they are?

How do you win without others having to lose? How do you lead so that others follow – not because they have to but because they want to?

As creative leaders, we understand the importance of getting others to buy in to our vision, implement our ideas and fight our corner. But often we lack the techniques to do so. 

We'll run this course for you at your own offices or at The Glove Factory Studios, Holt. Prices depend on venue and numbers attending.
