- Successful thinking techniques to promote new ideas
- From the very first moment, Bernhard Wolff inspires passion for new ideas and stimulates his listeners mentally to full speed. To achieve this, he uses his toolbox of successful thinking techniques: the participants will not only experience the baffling effects of pictures in their heads, but they will also invent new products and services using creative associations and resolve problems by changing perspectives; they will question assumptions, unlock new opportunities, think outside the box, generate ideas and look at the future. With much humour and in cabaret-style, Bernhard Wolff will make them aware how much of the way they act is influenced by patterns of perception and behaviour. For those who can smile about their habits, can also break with them!
- Key factors in creating an innovation climate
- Wolffs’ motto reads: All members of staff are creative, if they are allowed to be! Whether such creative resources are allowed to manifest themselves depends primarily on the famous “climate”. However, what does such an innovation climate look like, where people are allowed to be actively involved in the thinking and creative processes? And what are the requirements for the necessary intrinsic motivation? Bernhard Wolff provides an overview on the basis of the scientific findings by Harvard Professor Teresa M. Amabile, and this causes him to discover surprising similarities between the cartoon character Vicky the Viking and the reality of many companies
- The many opportunities for creative communication
- Even if many people work together, collective or “swarm” intelligence is not necessarily activated! It depends on our attitude, and the way in which we communicate whether the creative spark can make the leap, and fan into flame the innovation process. Based on his experience as a creative director and conference host, Bernhard Wolff reveals the opportunities for creative communication and explains how to put them to good use.
