Great people are at the heart of any great company. Energized, excited people give corporations that all-essential competitive edge.
In today’s fast paced Information Age, it’s easy to lose sight of human capital.
Mucking About…. is a science-based arts workshop that allows employees an opportunity to step back and make room for inventiveness and innovation. The direct result is enhanced team building, solution based problem solving and accelerated workplace productivity.
Invigorated employees pay untold dividends and can elevate a company’s profile from average to exceptional.
Mucking About… is art-making for the non-creative; it’s circular thinking for the linear mind. Think of it as engaging in a foreign landscape in order to enliven and activate what already exists in current corporate culture.
Expressive Arts practitioner and award-winning author Margaret Macpherson’s ArtSpirit training programs and workshops teach individuals how to transfer gained experience from one sphere to another. By engaging in arts-based activities, participants sharpen critical-thinking skills simply by Mucking About with creative thinking. It’s the right brain, left-brain leap, the one scientists tout as “true innovation.”
Through a Series of facilitated exercises, participants will:
- Re-focus on innate abilities
- Build trust with fellow participants
- Recognize and honor intuition
- Explore spontaneity without judgment or fear
- Engage in different styles of communication
- Push the limits of comfort
- Discover inventive thinking
- Work collaboratively
- Take unaccustomed risks
- Explore empathy and vulnerability
- Rediscover the meaning of work
- Apply creative skills in the corporate workplace
- Return to the workplace more Energized, Enlightened and Engaged
