Burnout is real, especially after the many months of monotony we’ve endured in the past year. But for many of us, creativity and innovation are critical to our professional success. How do we encourage the constant generation of new ideas, even when our brains need rest?
 
Luckily for us, innovation is not a moment of sudden, triumphant discovery, inspiration, or insight. It is part of a process that can be consciously detonated in a structured way, and Edwin Garcia of RedBox Innovation will tell us how to do just that. 
 
In this workshop, Edwin will take participants through the basic principles of innovation, including:
  • The concept of innovation
  • The different layers of innovation
  • The main elements to achieve innovation
 
Edwin will also cover the fundamentals of inspiration, including:
  • A working definition of inspiration
  • The idea that “everything is a remix”
  • Strategies to spark inspiration
 
You’ll walk away with a practical and simple model to accelerate innovation within your organizations and across your life.
