Chad J. Willett bridges the gap between the arts and business to help audiences maximize their creative potential with one of a kind keynotes (see website for additoinal keynotes) and breakout sessions. Programs include:
SMASH THE BOX
Audiences will SMASH THE BOX through inspiration, improvisation, changing their inner dialogue and breaking down the walls that stifle our creative abilities. Stories of inspiration include Steve Jobs, Marissa Mayer, Tina Fey and Jeff Bezos and how they embodied the 5 phases of SMASH THE BOX and the dramatic results this way of thinking had on their career and companies. Audiences will ignite their spontaneity and imagination by learning the art of improvisation in the workplace. Next, members will become aware of the words we use sub-consciously (stream of consciousness technique) and how they impact our ability to create in the workplace. Finally, audiences will break down the walls that stifle our ability to be creative: Placing false limits on our selves, worrying about what can go wrong, seeking a guarantee and our endless pursuit of perfectionism.
Once the “BOX IS SMASHED” audiences will:
* Develop “on the spot creativity” to attack business problems of all sizes
* Discover fresh approaches for reinvention and growth
* Build a culture that defers judgment and embraces bold ideas
* Add to the bottom line by re-imagining processes, driving efficiencies and improving operations
