About this course

According to LinkedIn Learning, creative thinking is the most important skill in the world... and there are a number of reasons to support this idea.

Put simply, creative thinking means ‘thinking outside the box’ or in other words it means thoughtfully approaching something from a new perspective. It’s a way of developing an original idea or overcoming a challenge - and that’s something that anyone can benefit from, whether you think of yourself as a creative person or not.

Creative thinking can be applied in many different ways. For example, it can help you:

  • Resolve a conflict at work
  • Write a more engaging email, report, or blog
  • Organise an activity filled holiday
  • Ask an insightful question during a team meeting
  • Recognise a previously unnoticed pattern

Our CPD Accredited Creative Thinking Training course will help users understand why creative thinking is an important skill, as well as understanding how they can practice their creative thinking. The course can be completed in just 15 minutes and provides a printable certificate upon completion.

Why is this training important?

Business benefits

Thinking creatively is beneficial in  many different areas, both personally and professionally. It’s a skill that’s well worth developing, no matter how you use it. It’s absolutely crucial to the growth and success of both individuals and teams, which is why organisations need creative thinkers. Imagine how much you and your team will flourish as you’re effectively solving problems, overcoming challenges, inspiring each other, communicating and brainstorming new ideas, and infusing the business with fresh and exciting services and products.

As a budding, or established, creative thinker, you’ll be open-minded and willing to try new ways of performing everyday tasks and tackling any new challenges you encounter. You’ll also be using a ‘growth mindset’, which is the belief that you can always improve - even when faced with setbacks. Creative thinkers are often resilient, self-reliant and confident when approaching both new and familiar challenges, which can lead to great personal and professional success and fulfilment.

Being a creative thinker is also great for self-expression, which can help you build stronger relationships and manage your emotions. The more experienced you become with thinking creatively, the easier you’ll find it to share other people’s perspectives and feelings, which can open up exciting opportunities to connect more deeply with others.
