Creative Thinking

CPD Approved

According to LinkedIn Learning, creative thinking is the most important skill in the world… and there are a number of reasons to support this idea.

Course Description

Put simply, creative thinking means ‘thinking outside the box’ or in other words it means thoughtfully approaching something from a new perspective. It’s a way of developing an original idea or overcoming a challenge – and that’s something that anyone can benefit from, whether you think of yourself as a creative person or not.

Creative thinking can be applied in many different ways. For example, it can help you:
