If there was ever a time when the world needs to think out of the box, it is most certainly now!
“Think out of the box” is a common phrase used to encourage creativity or new thinking. But what exactly is “the box”? And how do you think outside it?
Thinking IN the box isn’t inherently bad. It’s unconscious patterns of thinking and delivering current results, which often serves us well. Yet, when we want to innovate beyond current output, the ability to think “out of the box” becomes crucial.
In this session, participants will explore in-the-Box and out-of-the Box thinking, and gain clarity on when and how each can be optimal, depending on circumstances and the desired outcome. Participants will discover how changing their inner thinking, shows up on the outside, and can impact the world around them. Our motto? “Change the Box, Change the World!”
This event is free and open to all who wish to participate. We encourage you to share the event information with others so they can experience the professional development opportunities TOC has to offer!
