Take people outside and a fresh perspective arises.  Immediately you step outside, it becomes less easy to control the environment through which you pass, and your brain and body immediately become receptive to multi-dimensional stimuli. What is clear from scientific research is that the apparently simple process of putting one foot in front of the other, stimulates many of the organs of the body, and especially the brain.  This combined with breathing sustains us and helps us to think creatively (Oppezzo & Schwartz 2014).

When registering you will be asked to provide an example of a situation of when your thinking has been unclear or of a problem that you currently face. The workshop is offered in English and Spanish – please indicate your preferred language when booking.

The facilitators are Samantha Reis and Andrew Stuck, who in 2016 graduated from Cass Business School‘s Centre for Creativity with Masters in Innovation, Creativity and Leadership. Andrew coined the concept of walking creative, set up as part of the Museum of Walking, while   Sam is a yoga teacher and develops guided meditations.

Taller personalizado que se realiza a pie, diseñado para personas que quieren ganar claridad mental y practicar técnicas creativas de solución de problemas que permiten una mejor toma de decisiones. En el taller, habra espacio para la reflexion individual y la colaboración con otros.

Una vez las personas se encuentran al aire libre, nuevas perspectivas florecen. Inmediatamente, se vuelve mas difícil controlar el entorno, y el cerebro y cuerpo se vuelven mas receptivos a estímulos multidimensionales. Lo que es claro de la investigación científica, es que aparentemente el simple proceso de poner un pie en frente de otro estimula varios órganos y especialmente el cerebro. Esto, combinado con la respiración nos ayuda a pensar de manera creativa (Oppezzo & Schwartz 2014).

Durante el proceso de registro al taller, se le solicitara que provea una situación en la cual su proceso de pensamiento no ha sido claro, o un problema que actualmente esta confrontando. El taller sera ofrecido en ingles y español. Por favor indique su idioma de preferencia.

Los facilitadores del taller, Samantha Reis y Andrew Stuck, realizaron la maestría en Innovación, Creatividad y Liderazgo del Centro de Innovación de la escuela de negocios Cass Business School.
