If you always think the way you always thought, you’ll always get what you always got (Michael Michalko:2006).
The first step to innovation is the ability to think beyond conventional paradigms using non-traditional (creative thinking). Creativity is an attitude, a lifestyle, a culture at work.
Improving my Business
How do I get my workforce to 1) be creative and 2) nurture innovation? Our kriːeɪˈtɪvɪti SHAKE UP prəʊɡram is the oracle. We understand that learning about creativity and knowing the design thinking model is not enough to foster true workplace creativity. Creativity is an attitude, a lifestyle, a culture at work.
We would like to see a workplace where its creative culture leads to actual innovation in the business functioning and ultimately result in capturing new untapped markets. This is only possible if the business is willing to put behind its conventional paradigms and allow a new business to emerge.
For a new business to emerge we should learn how to think differently and allow each person’s different ideas to be integrated and synthesised to make newbox connections.
To construct a NEW CREATIVE CULTURE, we would assist to transmute your current workplace expertise into CREATIVE EXPERTISE. Your CREATIVE EXPERTISE will allow you to:
- Divert existing problems into opportunities for innovation and growth.
- Rekindle productive workplace relationships.
- Infuse work enthusiasm and morale.
- Inspire divergent thinking and turning ideas into practice.
- Different strategic thinking.
After completing the kriːeɪˈtɪvɪti SHAKE UP prəʊɡram, we expect learners to be able to Take advantage of CREATIVE EXPERTISE to construct a NEW CREATIVE CULTURE for INNOVATION.
The shake up is delivered in four phases as follows:
- Vuka ufunde elearning (½ day): All learners to complete the eLearning and assessment before the kriːeɪˈtɪvɪti shake-up day.
- Perceptum adhibere (½ day): Foundation learning.
- The shake-up (1-day): Discovery learning, problem statements, divergent thinking, ideation techniques, creative brainstorming, etc.
- Strategy and innovation (1-day): Recap, reflect and implement strategies to achieve innovation.

Becoming a genuine customer centric business is easier said than done. A top-down approach is called for where all managers get actively involved in manging and continuously improving the customer service function. This is a critical skills programme for all levels of management.
Without customers, we do not have a business, and without a business, there is no reason for any company to employ staff. This is why it is critical we focus all our efforts on delivering products and services that consistently meet all customer expectations.
The overall performance outcome is to implement a customer centric culture with the understanding that everyone has a role to play in creating exceptional customer experiences.
A practical workshop where you will:
- develop an overall customer-centric strategy, while thinking like an engineer,
- design and implement continuous improvement strategies, and
- learn to conduct customer service coaching (optional).

It was extremely professional, most enjoyable, Kobus. He captured our attention. Of all the courses that I have attended (which has been many) Kobus’s course was the most gratifying and exceptional.
Kobus, as always, is one of the best facilitators I have ever had. He always unlocks thoughts and processes what I would want to implement but shows in the course the way to do it.
To change the perception, initiate change in your own department. To implement the changes, you would like to see in your own departments. Be customer centric, aligned with the bank’s brand and strategy.
