This 15-minute activity makes an excellent introduction to any training initiative with a focus on creativity and innovation or add-on to a workshop to enhance participant creative thinking or creative problem-solving skills.
The activity works well with individuals or in small groups with up to 16 people. Participants explore thinking skills to position them to recognize and break ineffective patterns and establish more effective ones. In the case of teams, this exercise also brings to life a common issue facing many teams: "I'm repeatedly being asked to do more with less, and it can't be done!"
Consider adding this tool to your professional toolkit. You will be able to help others to quickly "see" new ways to change perspectives and discover solutions that address challenges that, at first glance, appear impossible to resolve.
