INNOVATIVE COMPANIES NEED INNOVATIVE PEOPLE
Creativity Training empowers your organization to unleash innovative people raising your capacity for growth.
Generate immediate solutions to realize opportunities and to solve problems. Did we mention immediately?
Highly interactive activities that strengthen a teams ability to collaborative and creatively solve problems.
The benefits of a creative workforce are far and wide. The energy and engagement they display is contagious and genuine. They refuse to accept that problems must persist. They refuse to not take advantage of new opportunities. They refuse to not embrace thought diversity. The result is more “Adaptability” in the organization that continuously innovates to maintain growth.
Employees are the most valuable asset of any organization. Everyday organizations are striving to maintain a competitive edge and looking for opportunities of growth. In the current environment of rapidly changing technology, social media, and workplace diversity organizations must innovate to stay ahead. Employees trained in creative problem solving simply have a strategic advantage driving innovation.
Group Ignited provides unique and specialized creativity training and facilitation services to organizations seeking to solve big problems, develop a workforce of critical thinkers, or gain new ideas. Creativity is not a mysterious force that only a few select people possess, creativity is a skill that can be learned and implemented “On Demand.” If the solution is not obvious and the issue is costing you time, money, or team productivity then a different approach is needed.
“Creativity is the Most Crucial Factor for Future Success.”

Group Ignited clients include Corporations, Non-Profit Organizations, and Municipalities. The size of the clients isn’t as important as identifying what type of energy is needed to generate ideas or create stronger bonds. We take a custom approach to each client we ignite. Our clients are typically looking for something different.
“As a corporate professional for 15+ years I have participated in several training sessions over the years. Anthony and Nefetari from Group Ignited have been the best facilitators that I have ever experienced. They are professional, diligent, detailed, and goal driven. Their pre-training preparation was great. They took time before to meet with me and my staff to ensure they understood the desired outcomes, and then they went to the conference facility in advance to make sure the space was adequate for the activities they led. During the training they wowed my staff with activities that all enjoyed as it forced us to work together as a team. The creativity sessions they led were thought provoking, challenging, and impactful. My department is better because of this training; for that I am grateful.”

"88 percent of all organizations have either the word “innovation” or “creativity” in their mission statements. Yet, less than 5 percent of them actually have programs in place that teach innovation or creativity and make it part of the culture." -Innovation Network
Children are so creative because they have the benefit of not knowing what is possible. Therefore everything is feasible. This makes for a very exciting world.
Our process is simple yet powerful. Ignite – Connect – Create. Ignite your team with energy. Connect your team to an effective process. Create the environment that allows creativity and innovation to develop. Before we bust out the flip charts, sticky notes, and theory, the energy experience for the team needs to be created.
Call it creativity or just plain crazy, we get butts in the seats. If you engage an outside company, you deserve something different and impactful. Group Ignited designs the environment to deliver an exceptional energy experience to allow your team to stretch their thinking and begin to build breakthrough ideas and stronger bonds.
We call ourselves Group Ignited because we love generating group energy. Experts agree that children innovate and create naturally and are excited to do it. Visions of a childlike workforce running around screaming, playing, and solving huge problems are intriguing. In everyday work situations there are habits and patterns that can unintentionally lead to periods of myopia. To spur continuous innovation and to counter myopia, positive group energy must be maintained.
Now that we are all energized, running around in an inspiring environment the process begins. Breakthrough ideas are not born, they are developed through collaboration. Collaboration that stretches thinking, forces connections, and allows people to think big. We utilize the Osborne-Parnes model of Creative Problem Solving that has been implemented worldwide for over 50 years. The FourSight Thinking Profile is used to explore and enhance thinking styles. We are enthusiastic, prepared, energetic, and highly skilled Facilitators that deliver the tools and techniques your organization can embrace to continuously create and innovate long after we have walked out of your doors.
Everyday organizations and companies are increasingly trying to become more innovative and creative. The pressure of keeping up with competitors, society, and technology places continuous pressure on your people. Often times a group is tasked with the directive “be more innovative” or “we need new ideas now.” Our approach is that we have very little control over how innovative or creative a group is but we have maximum control over the environment that will allow these things to explode.
