In-House Training

Developing a community of creative leaders to foster a culture of innovation and fuel top performing teams


Leading a strong, positive culture of innovation and change is the key to success. The OpenGenius In-House Creative Leadership Course will inspire you to unlock your own potential and create super talented teams, performing at their very best.

If you are a manager, senior manager, head of department, director, CEO, entrepreneur or an SME owner, join us and follow a 4-step process for successful innovation and apply a range of creative techniques to change your mind-set. Become an effective leader, adopting innovative strategies to motivate your team and create a culture that engages, inspires and energizes.

Using a combination of key themes from Chris Griffiths’ best-selling book, ‘GRASP The Solution’, and Jan Mühlfeit, Microsoft’s former European Chairman’s ‘Positive Leadership’ book, our Creative Leadership course is carefully designed to transform the way that you think. With demanding schedules, we rarely have chance to assess our leadership capabilities and areas for improvement. On the course, you will be armed with the creative processes and tools to become an effective leader with the confidence to ingrain innovation into your organisational culture and drive change through your teams.

Our course takeaways, such as cutting-edge iMindMap and DropTask software, decision radar, worksheets, check lists and trigger cards, will give you a toolkit to lead and drive innovation forward within your organisation. By the time you leave the course, you will have a clear leadership development plan to ensure positive people, purpose, process and place for effective leadership.
