Workshop: Brainstorming, Work, and Creativity

When I lead the workshop, “Brainstorming, Work, and Creativity: Thinking Outside the Box,” I ask participants to tape into their innate creativity and use this skill to draw connections between interests and their career paths. We start by writing in response to creative writing prompts and then brainstorm real, tangible ways to connect the dots and even draw new ones. I recently led this workshop for the fifth time to a group of Smith College alums in the D.C. area.

I love leading this workshop because the participants always bring a varied personal and work history that leads to a great discussion. Everyone leaves with a list of possible steps to take towards specific, personal goals.

Are you interested in bringing a workshop to your alum, professional or social group? I’m available to lead these workshops according to your needs. They usually last 2-3 hours and I find that they work best with about ten participants. We can hold them in someone’s home or in an office or classroom.

Here is the description:
Right brained or left, it doesn’t matter - being creative is essential in the current economy. Access your inner poet and your muse with poet /entrepreneur, Chloe Miller, who will lead us in a discussion of how to connect creativity with business planning and the generation of concrete ideas. This is a hands-on, interactive, process-driven voyage of discovery. Be prepared to roll up your sleeves.  Bring writing materials.
