INNOVATIVE THINKING - HOW TO CREATE THE MINDSET AND CONDITIONS FOR SUCCESS

Evelina Dzimanaviciute, Elite Mind

22 September | 12:00 – 13:00 BST

Innovation requires freedom and creativity to think outside of the box, to imagine what doesn’t exist yet, and repurpose existing resources to solve problems. A problem cannot be solved by the same thinking that has created it, so we need to learn how to look at the world differently. In this webinar, you will see how the right mindset and entrepreneurial practices can unleash your creativity and help you drive innovation.

You will explore:

  • The behaviours that might restrict your thinking and how to adapt your mindset to unlock creative potential
  • The key habits and conditions required to innovate, solve problems and move beyond limitations, including how to improve communication, collaboration and networking between departments
  • How to apply entrepreneurial practices to bring innovation into any organisation
  • Coaching questions to ask yourself or your team at times when you get stuck
