Creativity for HR leaders: Inspiring innovation

Employees feel valued and motivated when they’re encouraged to think outside the box. Companies know they need these fresh ideas to compete. But they don’t always know the best way to foster a culture of innovation.

Human Resources professionals play a vital role in creating conditions where free thought and imaginative thinking is possible.

From professional development and reward programs to employee communication and company policies, HR is at the heart of every organisation, ensuring that staff are motivated and empowered to succeed.

In this workshop, you gain a deep understanding of how to activate creative thinking and identify obstacles that get in the way. You learn how to encourage staff and management to seek solutions rather than problems, by freeing their creativity.

Creating the right conditions for innovation is no small task. I can show you the ways and means to get there.

  • Working methods that inspire creativity
  • Management styles and creative problem solving

What languages do you speak?

I am a native English speaker and I also speak Dutch. So my workshops are offered in either language depending on your preference.

Do you offer workshops for larger groups?

Workshops are meant to be interactive. Therefore, smaller groups work best. Still, I am open to facilitating workshops for bigger groups. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.

What are your payment policies?

I ask for a 50% deposit to book a workshop. The remaining 50% is due on the first day of the workshop. Sessions can be rescheduled with 7 day’s notice. Cancellations made with less than 7 day’s notice result in a loss of deposit.
