Course Description

Two very different behaviors often optimize creative thinking for innovation: high-focus work and restorative activities. Without rest, we are unable to focus. When we lack interaction and collaboration with one another, we often miss out on new ideas and fail to execute them. Organizations that value and design workplaces supporting high-focus work and restorative activities improve employee innovation, creativity, and well-being.

This 1-hour course educates participants about the connection between space design and the capacity for innovation.

  • Understand the difference between creativity and innovation.
