Skills Labs are proprietary creativity and innovation classes to train the specific skills, and provide the learnable mindsets, of creative thinking and problem solving that drive organizational innovation. Courses are delivered in person and are catered for audiences at specifics levels of the organization ranging from front-line innovators to C-suite leadership teams.
Courses are available to take individually, though we often recommend a cohort-based participant group and a customized bundling of classes. We believe in experiential learning, so course participants are often presented with relevant, company-specific tasks and projects to create immediate organizational value while applying their newly acquired knowledge, skills, and abilities.
