    Creative Teams: The Key to Unleashing the Artistic Brilliance of Your Employees

    Presented by Jonathan Michael Bowman, J.D

    Approved for 1 HRCI general credit and 1 SHRM-SCP and SHRM-CP PDC

    More than ever before organizations need to tap into the creative genius of their employees in order to stay competitive. The question is, “How can leaders accomplish this?” The answer is by using a Creative Team. A Creative Team is a group of employees assembled to accomplish a project through the use of the team members’ creativity and ingenuity. Jonathan has used these teams on many occasions to bring about innovation, increase productivity and start new initiatives. In this powerful presentation, he will detail what Creative Teams are and reveal how they work. More importantly, he will show you how you can start Creative Teams in your organization and use their brilliance to bring about innovative success.
