Our training brings out the creativity in everyone
"Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort."
Franklin D. Roosevelt
Creativity matters—a lot!
Creativity matters - a lot. 78% of college-educated professionals wish they had more creative ability (Adobe Creativity & Education Research). Creativeness is a vital self-skill, but it's even more critical for businesses to have employees brimming with creativity. Staff who are creative find it much easier to turn new and imaginative ideas into reality, they become very good lateral thinkers.
Creativity is the ability to perceive the world in new ways, find hidden patterns, make connections between seemingly unrelated phenomena, and then generate solutions for that. Imagination is purely based on a single process: thinking; creativity is unique in that it involves two fundamental processes: thinking, then producing.
Creativity can be learned
68% of education majors say creativity is something you can learn (Adobe Creativity & Education Research). Unfortunately, many people grow into adulthood thinking that creativity is something that only those with money or an "arty" background can have. Even worse, they often believe that all creative outlets require natural talent and exceptional skills learned over many years.
Clearly, a painter needs to know the intricacies of various painting methods and a seamstress certainly needs to have an intimate knowledge of threads, needles. But you don't need to spend 10,000 hours learning to be a creative and lateral thinker. We can start that process after just one course with us!
One-to-One creativity coaching and One-to-One photography training designed to enhance individual staff skills and creativity
We live in a busy and stressful world. Too often, it feels like there is not enough time to find ways to upskill staff so that they can meet the demands of running a professional business.
But what if you need staff to exceed expectations? Whatever skillset employees arrive with, it's vital that they find new ways to deliver professional results in every area of responsibility. When you have particular needs, then a pre-recorded YouTube video or a generic help site won't cut it; you need advice and training specific to your needs, and you need it quickly.
We have several One-to-One Phone Photography and Creativity Coaching options that are designed to help staff achieve your business goals.
Photography is a great way to learn to be creative
There is one area of creativity where excellent skills are not required before getting good results; that area is photography. Anyone can be creative with a camera or camera phone and get terrific images instantly. Photography is the democratization of creativity in a tiny box.
There is no rocket science in getting great shots; it's hugely about where you point your lens. After that, we just need to let the camera do most of the heavy lifting. The fundamental elements of photography and lighting are easily taught to people at all levels, no matter their background.
