As budgets tighten and the environment for creative, social and not for profit businesses gets harsher, it’s tempting to focus all your effort on delivering tasks and making ends meet. Whilst that’s important, you might miss the vital ingredient which can help you work smarter, with increased innovation and greater sustainability – your creativity.
At Generate, we firmly believe that creativity is an innate and under used human quality. How often do you doubt that you have it, or enough of it, or even the time to exercise it?
Creativity is a muscle which can be strengthened and add power to what you can make happen in the world.
Blending research into creativity, psychology and innovation with our many years experience working in this area, we have evolved Creative Dynamics: a simple model which helps teams and groups to understand their creative strengths and blocks.
The model helps people first understand their personal relationship with creativity. Next, they explore and practice tools, mindsets and skills which can help them harness their creative potential and overcome obstacles – together.
- Understand your creativity and how it shows up
- Discover your strengths, preferences, blockers
- harness your creative potential
- Collaborate and explore how to improve your creative mindsets, skills and overcome obstacles with peers or colleagues
- Co-create and sustain your learning together
Let us work with you to make more impact with your creativity now and develop sustainable skills for your future work.
Join us in this interactive voyage of creative discovery!
We are planning to run this workshop, Creative Incubator, in early 2018 in Bristol and are seeking a creative or social enterprise partner to work with us. Please get in touch if you’re interested.

Where does it come from?
Creative Dynamics is rooted in the Gestalt cycle of experience (sometimes ‘cycle of awareness’) and supported by research in other theories and stories around creativity and the creative process, neuroscience and other knowledge we hold from coaching training. The model was tested in a pilot workshop in 2016 and feedback from the participants helped to refine the model.
