By learning how to look at the world in new and unique ways and gaining the ability to problem solve with a new, creative mindset. If you're struggling to find solutions to problems, looking for ways to gain an edge over your competition or if you want to be the person who comes up with the next big idea, this series is for you!

Course Outline: (all sessions are held from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. at 115 East King Street)

Session 1: Why Is Creativity Important? - June 1
So many times in life we can figure out the “what” and “how” of things, but never get to the “why.” This session will be the launch pad for your creative journey. We will explore “why creativity is so important to your work and life,” as well as begin to formulate a plan for your new “creative” life.

How Do Creative People Operate? - June 8
Have you ever thought…”now why didn't I think of that?!” So many times in life we have moments were we ask ourselves that very question…usually followed by…”I so could have thought of that and done that!” But unfortunately for you…you didn't! And obviously, someone else did! In this session we'll explore the unique and varied ways that “creative” people think and operate, and begin to set into motion thoughts and personal actions so you will become…“that person…the one who thought of it first!”

What Does Creativity Look Like? - June 22
The answer is simple…”everything and anything!” Since this is a VERY BROAD answer, we'll spend some time deconstructing creative thoughts and actions, and begin to explore some ways to recognize creative opportunities when they arise.

Bringing It All Together! - June 29
The focus of this session will be creative problem solving. During the session you will not only learn about a new and unique problem solving technique, but you will actually experience it as a participant. The session utilizes various aspects of neuroscience along with group interactions to solve a problem at hand in a finite amount of time.
