WORDS @ WORK: The Creative Problem Solver with Catherine Graham

The Centre for Spirituality at Work invites you to:

WORDS @ WORK: The Creative Problem Solver

Saturday, Apr. 19, 2008.  Earlybird fee: by Mon. Apr. 14
10:00 am to 4:30 pm
At the Toronto Grace, near Yonge & Bloor, Toronto
At work we are challenged regularly to "think outside the box".  How often
do you try to do this, but with less success than you would like?  Today,
marvel over the experience of thinking through the box. Discover
well-reasoned, adaptable and imaginative tools for problem solving with
metaphors, transforming your challenges and releasing stress by using words and images. 
The result of creatively linking your left brain (analytical)
and your right brain (imagistic) is insightful and practical information
that emerges organically as you engage "whole brain" thinking.  A past
participant claims: "If you have half a mind to solve a problem, it's not
enough! Catherine Graham's training has given us techniques to combine the
strengths of both the analytical and the creative halves of our minds to
develop innovative, lasting solutions."
