The Power of Ideation
Do You Want to Become an Innovator in Your Field?
The world has become increasingly interconnected and complex. As a result, those involved in any business practice must continue to develop and refine skills to understand and address the rapid changes in users’ environments and behaviors.
Are you ready to start pushing the boundaries of innovation? Do you want to help people solve problems—perhaps problems they don’t even realize they had?
In the twenty-first century, people expect more from their products and services than they have in the past. People want innovation. They want to be happily surprised. They want to feel as though the companies and businesses they’re supporting are always thinking of ways to serve them better. They want you to be one step ahead.
How do you do that? By embracing the process of ideation.
Whether you’re an individual person contemplating their future, a company creating a new product, a non-profit looking for new avenues of expansion, or an entrepreneur thinking about their next big investment idea, ideation is an important part of the creative process that’s necessary for any business to succeed.
Join me for my The Power of Ideation webinar on Thursday, October 14th at 12:00 pm CDT to learn about what ideation is and discover how you can use this creative process to jump-start your genius, break into new territory, and get a leg up from your competitors.

Create Space for Something New
Global heavyweights like Google, Apple, and Airbnb have been using ideation and design thinking processes to maintain their status and stay one step ahead of their competitors. If you’re ready to generate ground-breaking solutions by challenging assumptions and moving beyond the obvious, you won’t want to miss out on this webinar.
Ideation is a solution-focused approach to brainstorming and can be used to start a new business, create a new product, come up with new content, or even just broadening your perspective on the world around you. While brainstorming is something that many people are familiar with, ideation takes it one step further by focusing on where a business can add value for their user.
The process of ideation is all about uncovering the missing puzzle piece by widening your scope of understanding. When the ideation process is done well, you’ll find that the piece you’ve been missing could have been sitting in front of you all along.
