Given the accelerating pace of change in the world, tools to improve creativity (lateral thinking) are becoming more and more critical to success. Historically, managers and professionals have been trained to plan, organize and control work processes with the objective of improving efficiency and effectiveness – very little energy has been focused on improving creative thinking skills. Lateral Thinking, created by one of the world’s leading experts in creative thinking methods – Dr. Edward de Bono – offers tools and techniques that, when applied, actually increase both the ability to think creatively and the velocity of thought.
The Executive Boot camp is a five-day program is designed to provide high potential delegates at any level in the organization with thinking skills, processes and frameworks for developing business strategy, solving problems, making decisions, leveraging creative thinking and improving communication. Research shows that these skills are among the key differentiates for successful (and unsuccessful) business leaders around the world.
The course introduces a common language and a client-driven approach to achieve the objectives of the program. Due to the intensive and demanding nature of the program, it is conducted either as a residential (or onsite) course or virtually in a series of modules with inter-module “homework” conducted in teams. The Executive Boot Camp is not for everybody – it is a “boot camp” for high-potential middle and senior level leaders – the experience is both demanding and highly rewarding.
