Presented by associate professor of management, Jennifer Mueller. During this time of disruption (e.g., Covid-19, social unrest), we need creativity now more than ever.  Yet, some people assume creativity is reserved for geniuses and not something just anybody can do.  In this seminar, we will learn that anyone can be creative. We will identify and learn to use two strategies proven to bring more creativity into your everyday experience so that you can:

  • Change your thinking to improve your physical and mental well-being
  • Identify new problem solving opportunities in your life 
  • Lead creativity in the workplace and recognize creative solutions when they come your way
