What Past Participants Had to Say:

“Creativity continues to be identified by senior executives across business sectors and geographies as a key competency to sustainable organizational success. But how can creativity be unleashed among individuals, teams and ultimately, the entire organization? As a first step, it is important to obtain an empirical diagnosis of creativity in your organization so that you know what action plan to put into place. Along these lines, I highly recommend the IMAGINO® assessment as a tool for understanding and enhancing creativity in your organization and reducing potential obstacles to unleashing the inherent creativity that resides in the hearts and minds of all people.”

David G. Altman, PhD
Executive Vice President and Managing Director, EMEA
Center for Creative Leadership

“I was impressed with and found very beneficial the creativity and innovation seminar held last year. The IMAGINO® assessment tool was introduced together with some useful techniques for unlocking creative thinking in order to become more innovative. The IMAGINO® tool covers incredible, in-depth research and offers numerous possibilities of exploring one's strengths and gaps on the individual level, as well. Personally, this training was truly useful for me, as it gave me new techniques to increase my creativity potential and apply it, especially in my work. The facilitator, Antonija Pacek, was very professional, delivering the new information and techniques in a very refreshing way.”
