Organizations of all sizes are going through unprecedented change. We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them. Understanding and rapidly adapting to the changing landscape are the new success factors. Today’s leaders need avant-garde skills and unique experiences to successfully manage their teams and organizations while planning for the future. The world needs creative leaders, who in the face of ambiguity and uncertainty, create clarity of purpose and drive innovative solutions for impact.
Delivered in collaboration with THNK School of Creative Leadership, the BCAMA is offering an experiential workshop that will help leaders realize their full potential, tackle challenges and accelerate the growth of their enterprise.
This highly experiential workshop, will propel your leadership skills through divergent and convergent thinking and interactive activities.

Leaders come to THNK to reimagine their organizations and bring their teams and ways of working into the 21st century. We call this work creative leadership. Creative leadership isn’t about leaders becoming more creative in an artistic or design sense. It’s about individuals imagining a new future and having the capacity and permission to unlock the creative potential of their teams and organization.
Drawing from the big picture of innovation leadership, the lean agility of the entrepreneurial mindset and a deeply human-centered outcome, the result is a greater sum: transformational leadership that propels individuals, teams and organizations to the next level of business and societal impact.
Sarah McKinney aptly profiled the unique experience of the THNK approach on Forbes.com
“THNK takes time to systematically dismantle participants’ currently held beliefs and mental frameworks while simultaneously introducing new ways of perceiving and solving complex problems. This highly disruptive introspective approach is buoyed by the belief that change must first happen on a personal level before it can be successfully implemented within teams, organizations, business, and society.”
Whether it’s helping scale capacity in some of the world’s most innovative companies like Salesforce, GoPro, ING, Johnson & Johnson, or helping others such as FIFA, Vodafone and PBS move to a new chapter and climate primed for innovation, our partners and their teams leave with greater purpose and armed with the tools and insights for lasting impact.
