Webinar Overview:  Art Thinking: How to Carve Out Creative Space in a World of Schedules, Budgets, and Bosses

Anyone from CEO to freelancer knows how hard it is to think big, let alone follow up on that big idea, while under pressure to get things done. Amy will share with you practical principles, inspiration, and a healthy dose of pragmatism to help you navigate the difficulties of balancing creative thinking with driving toward results.

You will:

Learn how to adopt a mindset that looks at problems, situations, and issues differently.
Learn how to integrate art and the tools of business to protect space for open-ended exploration and manage risks on your way to success.
Move from saying “Wouldn’t it be cool if . . . ?” to realizing your highest aims, helping you build creative skills you can apply to all facets of business and life. Warm, honest, and unexpected,
Reimagine your work and life—and even change the world—while enjoying the journey from point A.

Amy will remind you that if you are making a work of art in any field, you aren’t going from point A to point B. You are inventing point B. You are breaking new creative ground!

Join Amy for a refreshing and inspiring discussion on creativity in the workplace and beyond– that will draw on art, psychology, science, sports, law, business, and technology –all to help you land big ideas in the practical world.
