Our Mission:

To offer and deliver a Certificate in Creative Leadership and Facilitation for Innovation for executives and professionals according to the highest standard in the field. We focus on the development of the individual and on organizational learning applied to the business context.

Academic Credentials

Our Certificate is fully endorsed by the International Center for Studies in Creativity (ICSC), a unique department within Buffalo State College, part of the State University of New York. The ICSC offers academic programs based on over 60 years of research and practical application in the field of Creativity, Leadership and Innovation. As the first school to offer a Master of Science degree in Creativity, the ICSC has achieved an international reputation for scholarly research and for its graduate and distance programs that cultivate skills in creative thinking, innovative leadership practices and problem solving skills.

The Certificate

Who is this for?

  • Company executives who are in leadership positions and need to drive creative change in their organizations.
  • Independent practitioners (consultants, trainers, coaches, facilitators) who want to develop creativity and innovation in the organizations they are working with.
  • Anyone interested in a program that is highly business-focused where participants benefit from the cross-pollination of different perspectives.

What are we offering?

A Certificate in Creative Leadership and Facilitation for Innovation over the course of 10 months consisting of:

  • 10 modules of 2 days each, one per month: 160 hours of face-to- face, highly interactive learning experience, led by high-caliber faculty, with consolidated experience working in the business environment.
  • 5 individual coaching sessions: five personalized one-hour sessions, via Skype or phone, designed to tailor the learning to each participant's specific needs and to support the professional applications.
  • Immediate application to business challenges at work: each month participants have to apply the skills and tools they have learned to real challenges they are facing in their business environment.

Our Approach

Creativity is the process that leads to Innovation. To produce Innovation you need first to develop creative thinking skills and adopt a creative mindset. We know that creativity can be taught and applied in a deliberate way to achieve innovative results. Our approach effectively integrates accelerated learning, coaching and building a portfolio of experiences.

Accelerated Learning

Our curriculum is built according to the principles of Accelerated Learning, the most advanced teaching and learning method in use today. It's a total system for speeding and enhancing the learning processes, designed to bring participant quickly to high level of performance. Each learning module is highly interactive and involves regular feedback from both faculty and peers. Participants are asked to immediately practice what they have learned in their work environment in the month in-between modules, to promptly engage in real and strategic challenges.

accelerated-learning-graphic

Coaching

Coaching is essential to promoting creativity, high performance and higher levels of commitment to any investment in innovation efforts. Participants will have a personal coach who will work with them on an individual basis to deepen their understanding of each phase of the creative process and to help them to develop confidence and competence in the practice of tools and techniques that are learned throughout the program.

Portfolio of Experiences

Throughout the program participants will build a Portfolio of their own experiences where they document their applications of the Creative Problem Solving process, the outcomes they have achieved and their key learnings. At the end of the program the Portfolio will be evaluated by a team of independent reviewers, ICSC certified. The completion of the Portfolio is a key requirement to the achievement of the Certification standard. It is also a tangible outcome of the program that can be used by the participant to share their knowledge and expertise.

Faculty and Coaches

All our faculty members and coaches hold a Master of Science degree in Creativity and Change Leadership from the International Center for Studies in Creativity at Buffalo State College, SUNY.

Creative Problem Solving

Why Creativity Matters?

Today leaders live in a world of complexity and ambiguity where they often deal with ill-defined problems (i.e., problems with no single solution path), new or changing situations and gaps in information. In our fast-pace, constantly changing business world, facilitating productive change is the main focus of leadership:
because leaders essentially bring about change, creativity is considered today a core leadership competence.

Complex problems, novel situations and new opportunities faced by today’s leaders cannot be approached through routine solutions: they require creative thinking and creative problem solving skills.

What is CPS?

Creative problem solving skills can be effectively developed by applying the Creative Problem Solving model (CPS), the core methodology of our program.

CPS is a comprehensive thinking framework built for developing creative solutions to problems. Originally conceived by Alex Osborn and Sidney Parnes in the 1950s, CPS is based on over 60 years of research and practice. Through alternating phases of divergent and convergent thinking, CPS provides a process for managing thinking and action, while avoiding premature or inappropriate judgment. It is built upon a flexible framework that is capable of incorporating many thinking tools and approaches that can be effectively applied in the business context.

How is CPS applied?

Developing New Products & Services

CPS is used to generate ideas and develop concepts for products and services to meet the needs of new customers and expanding markets.

Building and Aligning Work Teams

CPS is used to diagnose problems within existing work teams and to develop solutions resulting in more cohesive and higher performing teams. To boost team effectiveness, the use of CPS is combined with FourSight®, a leading assessment tool designed to create powerful teams at work.

Clarifying Vision & Strategic Direction

CPS is used to explore organizational vision and values, clarify strategic directions, and commit to action plans to achieve the desired results.

Creating a Culture of Innovation

CPS is used to identify and pursue opportunities for organizational growth and develop a leadership coalition to support a culture of innovation.
