YES!Circle is thrilled to be teaming up with the Capitol Creativity Network ( ) for this very special program!  At the heart of business innovation (and success) is creative thinking!  Many entrepreneurs rely on luck and lighting bolts of inspiration for creative business ideas, and believe you are either creative or you’re not.  Creativity is not an accident - it’s the result of a specific kind of thinking and can be easily learned.  In this educational, interactive and engaging workshop, creativity expert and author Gregg Fraley will teach you a creative problem solving process that has been used by most successful businesses and endorsed by Harvard Business Review. 

•  Understand the myths and the reality of how creative thinking works
•  Gain a better understanding of how to set yourself up for more creative thoughts all the time
•  Understand the day to day behaviors of consistently creative people
•  Learn and practice a classic method, CPS, which is useful in addressing any complex challenge, whether business or personal
•  Learn several useful tools and techniques for generating and evaluating ideas that can be used within CPS or “stand-alone”

Our presenter is none other than Gregg Fraley, the author of Jack’s Notebook, a business fable about creative problem solving.  The process he teaches has been used for over 50 years by most successful businesses and has been praised by countless publications.  With this training participants will have a highly useful tool to use in solving the many challenges they face in starting and growing a business.
