What is Go Creative?
Talking about being more creative in the workplace is one thing, but inspiring, nurturing, and sustaining it is another.
Gaia understands that creativity does not have to be confined to the arts but that the arts can be uniquely mobilized in the service of learning.
Research supports this idea, indicating that arts-based education promotes creative thinking and problem-solving skills, and fosters innovative leadership competencies. Arts-based training is already used in many sectors, from law firms to fortune 500 companies, local councils to non-profit organizations.
Consider, Toronto-based intellectual Richard Florida has long noted the correlation between creativity, economic growth, and civic renewal. Further, a 2018 Ipsos Reid survey of 500 Canadian business leaders revealed 88 per cent of these decision makers believe “motivating and empowering employees to be their most creative selves is an important factor in creating a successful workplace”.
Dr. Karyn Purvis shares that scientists have recently determined that it takes approximately 400 repetitions to create a new synapse in the brain – unless it is done by play, in which case it takes between 10 and 20 repetitions.
Workshops are tailored for leadership teams and can host from 6 -100 people. Workshops duration can vary from 2 hours, a half-day, a full-day or a series of full days depending on the depth of your engagement with the process.
Gaia tailors specific exercises to help individuals and organizations flourish. These unique, hands-on workshops encourage cooperation, creative thinking, and long lasting, experimental learning.
