Creativity is the most fundamental of human qualities, a unique trait of our species and the most important asset we have. It enables us to plan a future, to imagine what’s possible and to imagine requires creativity.

Combined with your brain’s 80 billion neurons you’re already geared to have a creative advantage in life, so how can you use this to be your best self?

The Creative Advantage is a deep dive into the science that fuels creativity. It explains how we can rewire our brain, understand our motivators, modify our behaviours, boost our skillset and instill habits to give us an advantage in this rapidly changing and competitive world.

By demystifying creativity and demonstrating that it’s a learned skillset, it provides practical ways to tap into creative problem-solving techniques to incorporate into the everyday life choices.

With creative insight comes increased confidence to change your personal circumstances and in doing so the world around you, giving you understanding, knowledge and an advantage in all aspects of life.

This is a self paced course that you can do in your own time. 

This online program is designed as a self-paced format and includes:

  • Over 5 hours of video that correspond to each step in The Creative Advantage Program Model,
  • a Program Booklet (120 pages) that includes a comprehensive summary of each video transcript, source references and additional resources, and
  • a Practical Guide that includes 23 activities to reinforce each step in the program model.
