Creative Leadership & Teambuilding
Creative Leadership & Teambuilding
Today’s leaders require a whole new set of skills to be effective in the modern world. According to social theorist Dan Pink and others, leaders most need right brain capacities like creativity and the ability to see the whole, tell a story, synthesize information, and connect with meaning.
Drawing on 15 years experience in training creativity leaders internationally, Partners for Youth Empowerment (PYE) has developed a training series in Creative Facilitation an experiential workshop designed to build key skills for creative leadership.
This training will provide a framework for understanding the new demands for creative leadership. It then gives participants strategies and practices for developing these capacities within themselves and in facilitating groups. The training is based on the premise that you don’t have to have any artistic experience to use creative activities in your work.
– Ways to use arts-based activities to enliven learning, deep reflection and build strong teams
-Easy-to-lead activities based on storytelling, creative writing, visual arts, music, drama and movement
-Ways to create safe environments for innovation
– Practical models of creative process and group dynamics
-Ways to engage your own creativity
-Methods for building safety and high participation
-A framework for integrating multi-arts into training and team building work
Faculty members, trainers and team-leaders who complete this training build confidence in their own creative abilities and gain experience using a toolkit of techniques for bringing vibrancy into their classroom and teams.
