Creativity & Innovation Training Webinars


Creativity and innovation go hand in hand. Fostering a culture where employees are both empowered and expected to use creativity helps produce innovation in thinking and outcomes. Yet these two concepts can be hard to actually teach and measure. HRDQ-U offers a range of creativity and innovation skills training webinars that will give you the tools you need to cultivate a workplace of intellectual freedom and exciting ideas. Learn how you can keep your organization relevant, engaging, and competitive.

Why Do Creativity and Innovation Matter?

Providing a space that encourages employees to innovate, think outside the box, and bring their full selves to work keeps teams from becoming stagnant, prevents processes from becoming stale, and promotes constant improvement. The freedom to be creative is good for employee retention, good for productivity, and good for your bottom line.

Why Do You Need Training in Creativity and Innovation

The majority of standard management training courses don’t include training in innovation and creativity. Leaders must hone their inventive leadership abilities and adapt to the new difficulties that continually arise. Creativity innovation training webinars can bring the following outcomes:
  • Introduce a framework for creative problem-solving to offer you a vocabulary and strategy for controlling the innovation process.
  • Develop a high-performing creator and innovator’s mentality.
  • Learn to produce, assess, analyze, and apply original and creative ideas.
  • Train your complete brain to think quickly: Combine left-brain reasoning, analysis, and planning with right-brain creativity, artistry, and intuition.
  • Discover useful methods and tools to encourage individual and group creativity.
  • Establish a setting that encourages innovation, cooperation, and creativity.
  • How to convey your ideas to stakeholders to gain their support.
  • Create the foundational concepts for your unique problems and the implementation techniques for them.

How to Integrate These Values

If you’re serious about encouraging creativity and promoting innovation, you’ll also want to “walk the talk” on an organizational level. This means embedding these values at every level of your company, from job descriptions and evaluation strategies to the physical space you provide your employees.

Here are some tips to foster creativity in the workplace

Create space for sharing. Both figuratively AND literally. People are most creative when they have the opportunity to engage with and be inspired by other people and their ideas. Make time and opportunities for sharing knowledge, interests, and ideas to get the creativity flowing. And create more physical spaces to foster these kinds of conversations and collaborations by expanding gathering areas, turning old offices into casual conference rooms, etc.

Promote flexible working options. No two people work the same. So, no two work spaces should really look the same. Providing opportunities for employees to work remotely or on schedules that work best with their brains helps energize their minds and sets them up for creative success. Consider implementing different types of work settings in your office as well. Providing options between cubicles, quiet rooms, couches and lounge areas helps employees move around throughout the day depending on the work they’re doing and find inspiration and creativity where they need it.

Codify creativity in policies. Let employees know that creativity and innovation are expectations of their roles, not just “nice-to-haves.” How can you do that? Update role descriptions to get it in writing. Add it to performance objectives to incentivize it. Of course, there is no uniform benchmark for creativity. But measuring it in a way that assesses employees’ willingness to be nimble and collaborative is a way to get at that idea.
