Creating with Purpose: A New Approach to Brainstorming

Weʼve all been in brainstorming sessions, but what we often discover is that we spend more time debating ideas than creating ideas. We find ourselves wondering why we canʼt move forward, why we seem to come up with the same ideas over and over and never really enter a space of organic innovation. In this 6 week class John Haynes will present you to a new approach for brainstorming that will infuse energy and help you create rather than judge ideas. Whether you are struggling with innovation or feel you have a stellar track record at idea generation John will give you some tools to enhance what you already do.
