Imagination Club Workshop on: “Exploring the Dark Side of Creativity”

Facilitated by: Jeffrey Baumgartner

Creativity is not always pretty. Research has also shown that it has a dark side that includes links to mental illness, reduced humility and dishonesty. (Read more here)

In this workshop, we will explore the dark side of creativity and, especially, its relationship with lies, deception and other forms of dishonesty. We’ll do this in a handful of individual and group exercises as well as a role-play activities.

The aim of the workshop is not to turn you into a better liar, but rather to help you learn to use the link between creativity and dishonesty in order to be more creative in your thinking, story telling and approach to solving problems.

Workshop on: An Experiment in Social Psychology

Facilitated by: Andy Whittle

Using Icebreakers in workshops to help people get to know new people without awkwardness.

Based on an article by Susan Krauss Whitbourne.

Nearly everybody, at one time or another, has participated in a workshop, and has without a doubt, experienced an Ice-breaker of some sorts.

Usually it is an exercise in getting to know people’s names and as a gentle warm up prior to starting the workshop.

Sometimes though, they serve a higher purpose. In this workshop, Andy would like to take you on an experimental journey through 10 Ice-breakers that have a Social Psychology value in that they can tell you a lot about the other people and at the same time a little about yourself.

Just what will these icebreakers reveal about you and your team?

Come along and join in the fun as we take a magical tour through your mind and find out what makes you tick. We’ll also gain insights into how and why your peer/work group functions the way it does. (And enjoy the Ice breakers for what they are at the same time).
