Sheridan's Creative Problem-Solving Living Laboratory!

Location - Sheridan College

Bring your challenge to our creative problem-solving living laboratory!

WHAT:
Sheridan is holding a workshop for faculty and staff on the Creative Problem Solving* process. We have a win/win opportunity we think you will be interested in!

Do you have a business/professional challenge or opportunity that you are struggling with? Are you looking for potential solutions? We are looking for volunteer ‘clients’ to bring their challenge to our workshop teams who will gain practice putting their new creative problem solving skills to work in a facilitated living laboratory environment, and YOU will reap the benefit! You will take away with you some new thinking and possible solutions to consider in solving your challenge. (No preparation is required on your part other than being able to state your challenge situation and meet with a small group on a very informal basis to discuss your challenge.)

WHO:
Our ‘clients’ can be anyone who:
- is the problem owner (i.e., you are the decision maker)
- is looking for new thinking (i.e., you do not already have the solution or answer in mind)
- is motivated to work on resolving the issue

WHEN:
We are looking for 9 volunteer ‘clients’ with challenges who are available to meet with your creative problem solving team for an information gathering session at the end of the day on Thursday, January 5th (3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.) and again for a 1.5 hour time slot during the day on Friday, January 6th to participate in the process and hear the results.

SIGN UP BEFORE: December 14, 2016

WHERE:
Sheridan College – campus to be determined (Mississauga or Oakville)

QUESTIONS? / AVAILABLE TO BE A ‘CLIENT’?
