  18. 18. Creative Leadership THE LEADERSHIP CHALLENGE Traditional leadership models often lack the skills to drive innovation. An effective leader can see the whole, tell a story, synthesize information and inspire a team. They’re resourceful, can come up with great strategies and take nothing for granted – the current way of doing things may not be the best way. This takes creativity. THE PYE SOLUTION We provide a framework for understanding the demands of Creative Leadership, giving participants strategies and a toolkit of powerful skills to develop these capacities within themselves and in facilitating groups. AS A RESULT, YOU WILL LEARN TO: • Expand your creativity. • Develop more effective ways of communicating. • Skills to lead meetings and group sessions that encourage participation and new ideas. • How to promote engagement, original thinking and risk taking. 16
  19. 19. CREATIVE TEAM BUILDING THE TEAM BUILDING CHALLENGE A team that pulls in different directions is no team at all. Weak communication, disconnect, lack of trust or respect, the fear of being judged and feeling unseen or unheard are common complaints among employees - and yet strong teams are the key to high-performing companies. THE PYE SOLUTION Creative Team Building creates a safe and supportive community allowing participants to develop the key characteristics of high performance teams. AS A RESULT, YOU WILL LEARN TO: • Increase the self-awareness and confidence of team members. • Strengthen listening and communication skills. • Promote the ability to think on your feet. • Encourage full participation in group processes. • Build trust. • Create a more harmonious and collaborative team environment. 17
  20. 20. FACILITATION TRAINING THE FACILITATION CHALLENGE An underestimated skill, poor facilitation fails to tap into the creative potential in your organisation, leading to frustrated employees who feel their contribution has been overlooked. Good facilitators are able to bring out everyone’s voice, improving team sessions, building trust, rapport and openness. THE PYE SOLUTION We teach powerful techniques for running more engaging and participatory team sessions, meetings and events. Our creative facilitation trainings help you hone your skills as a facilitator, as well as equipping you with simple techniques to create an environment where people feel engaged, heard, alive to their own ideas and are willing to take risks. AS A RESULT, YOU WILL LEARN TO: • Create fun, engaging and participatory sessions and meetings, step-by-step. • Lead activities that spark your team’s creativity. • Create a space for dialogue about issues that matter to your business. • Set up a safe environment for creative exploration, ideas generation and risk-taking. • Generate ideas. 18
  21. 21. EVENTS DESIGN AND CONSULTATION THE EVENT CHALLENGE How do you inject creativity into your meetings, conferences or work environment? How do you engage participants or employees so that they feel part of something important, valuable, entertaining and relevant? THE PYE SOLUTION We can help you design sessions for your gatherings to build deep group connections and create a more impactful and productive event. • We work closely with the organisers to bring in creativity, community and team building. • Our seasoned facilitators can guide participants through experiences of self reflection and group development. • Our team can help you animate the space so that there is less talking from the podium and more opportunities to actively connect. 19 “PYE’s participation in our company’s two-day conference allowed participants to truly connect with themselves and others.
