This lunch workshop provides hands-on opportunities to develop better creativity and problem solving within your congregation.
Strategic planning consultant Tad Dickel addresses the accelerating rate of change in today's society, characteristics of effective creative problem solving in teams, and divergent and convergent thinking. In advance of the workshop, you will be offered the Basadur Profile, an assessment that identifies your creative problem-solving style. Dickel unpacks this helpful tool at the workshop. You’ll gain better understanding of creative problem solving and how to begin applying some of these skills in your congregation. You’ll learn to use both to address challenges and to engage in more productive conversations and decision making.
In this workshop, you will:
- understand how different styles affect how people approach creativity and problem solving.
- apply fundamentals of creativity and problem solving to real questions and challenges experienced by congregations.
