Creative Thinking and Innovation Etisalat Academy
  • Locations: Dubai
  • Duration: 2 Days

Course details

Theories abound about innovation and the brain, but one thing is clear - every man-made object on the planet started with a thought; an idea leading to greater expansion. One barrier to this process of creativity and innovation is not ‘realising' the potential power of our brains. \Ale have this wonderful natural 'computer' with its 100 billion cells, and yet, on average we only use 1 or 2 percent of its capacity. Why is that? One reason is that we are never really taught how to get the best out of our brain. We all of us have the capacity for genius, but it does reguire us to learn how to use our brains -to make a stronger connection with our subconscious and ask some searching guestions.

The course will provide invaluable business and life skills of direct relevance to personal and business achievement.. It will equip you with the tools and techniques you need to make the innovative leaps that can enrich your life and those around you.
