SMASH THE BOX is a catalyst for growth! Growth happens by creating a culture of innovation where your group says “Yes And” in meetings, changes the work environment from negative to positive, and shifts the focus from “me” to “us.” SMASHING THE BOX will have a direct impact on your team's culture, morale, productivity, and the top and bottom line.
Audiences will also SMASH the 4 Walls of the MENTAL BOX that stifle organizations and keep them from generating original ideas that have value. Ideas change cultures which change companies and allow organizations to gain a creative advantage over one's competition. The 4 Walls of the MENTAL BOX include:
Strategies- Create a creative plan that matches your business plan
Techniques- Use creative techniques customized for working America
Culture- Create a culture of innovation by smashing the 4 walls of the Mental Box
Idea Generation- Saying “Yes And” allows groups to generate original ideas
