Creative Thinking at UWE this week…

Posted on

Aspiring Top LeadersThe Aspiring Top Leaders Innovation Workshop took place this week, here at UWE. The workshop focussed on how to generate and develop novel and useful ideas, while working in diverse groups.

It was a great day, full of enthusiasm from our fantastic participants – many of whom form our current cohort on the Aspiring Top Leaders programme, in partnership with NHS South of England and NHS Trust North Bristol. The workshop was lively and thoughtful, and was made all the more interactive with the use of ‘real’ problems from our guest clients – Claire Shepherd, Promoting Organisational Learning Project Manager from the Royal United Hospital, Bath and Steve Boxall, Head of Capital Projects at the Royal United Hospital, Bath. Claire and Steve worked with all our participants on two relevant and ‘live’ problems. The groups used these client briefs to apply divergent/ convergent thinking creative tools and to think about what helps and hinders creativity.

Thank you to all those who participated, shared their experiences and their creativity. Thank you also to Claire and Steve, for their time and enthusiasm, and to Dr Rob Sheffield, the workshop leader and our facilitators.
