Learning to collaborate creatively brings about changes, and change requires the involvement of those affected. As a coach for creativity, productivity and innovation, I utilise workshops and trainings to facilitate this process. Workshops focus on experiential learning, while trainings focus on knowledge transfer.

Workshops and trainings are beneficial for teams that can develop together in this way, as well as for functional groups tasked with sharing acquired knowledge with the teams. The specific approach that makes sense for your own company can be clarified through preliminary consulting.

Creativity and Team Culture

Employees and teams play a crucial role in driving innovation. Their creativity enables companies to adapt and remain competitive. The way employees communicate and collaborate is an expression of the company culture, which can either foster or hinder creativity.

For example, teams may impede their creativity when employees withhold their ideas out of fear. Original ideas often incite initial irritation and may be ridiculed or criticised. However, companies cannot neglect innovation, given the increasingly rapid changes in the market.

Teams can nurture their creativity by developing an understanding of creative processes and embracing failure as part of the journey. They can also foster psychological safety, establish mechanisms for generating new ideas, and encourage idea-sharing across hierarchical levels.

Promoting creativity, productivity, and innovation in teams is primarily a cultural matter, in addition to providing resources and support from leadership. It benefits from open communication, trust, strengthening of self-management, and establishing an engaging meeting culture.

Mindset and Methods

One effective method for strengthening teams is retrospectives. In addition, creative teams can benefit from practices such as daily stand-ups, transparent roles, clarified delegation, Kanban, and the Consent Principle for decision making. Creative projects can also benefit from premortems, postmortems, and so-called braintrust meetings.

The effectiveness of brainstorming in teams depends on various factors. As a consultant, I therefore prefer techniques like the SCAMPER technique, Brainwriting according to Sakai, the 6-3-5 method according to Rohrbach, the Six Thinking Hats method according to de Bono, and the Walt Disney Method by Dilts, among many other inspiring tools.


Last but not least, storytelling. It can be used to develop leaders, inspire employees, facilitate cultural change processes, gain support, and captivate customers. Even in customer service, storytelling can help solve problems and build trust.

Feel free to schedule a free ☕ Intro Coffee, to clarify further questions. I am looking forward to the collaboration!
