‘The arts are emerging as a role model for business and government organizations because the arts excel in areas where managers struggle the most: chaos, diversity, ambiguity, envisioning the future and the ability to dare to break molds.’ -Wall Street Journal.
Art Thinking Lab is committed to helping businesses use creative and visual thinking to bring a new dimension to finding solutions to the big problems and uncertainties that characterise the current business environment. We are artists who understand the potential to enhance creative thinking and find new ways to inspire and drive growth, catalysing improved teamwork and better decision making.
Our approach provides space for reflective thinking that is rarely afforded within the business context. It allows teams to understand the present context and lean into the future with greater clarity. In so doing, it strengthens empathy between team members and with clients, providing an essential platform for improved effective decision making.
In his well evidenced change leadership model, ‘Theory U - Leading from the future as it emerges,’ Otto Scharner (MIT) describes how this reflective space that he calls ‘presencing’ allows what is intangible to become tangible, allowing us to untether from the old and lean into the new, the future that wants to emerge, the future that leaders and beneficiaries of our Art Thinking work will disrupt and shape.
Outcomes and insights from our work with our clients include:
Reinforcement of the significance of the whole team sharing and living the purpose and vision of the organization
Better understanding of the importance of greater shared and facilitative leadership roles
Insights into the value of establishing a more creative culture, where creativity and creative thinking are part of ‘the way we do business’
The necessity for open collaboration to be facilitated at all levels within the organization
The importance of empowerment on individuals within the organization, to increase the level of autonomy that individuals and teams can take.
The power and significance of a more effective shared visual language, to help teams to bring more vision to their work with clients internally and externally
Highlighting barriers of ownership to collaboration within teams and, through heightened self-awareness, equipping people with the ability to overcome this.
‘Most original thinking comes through collaboration and through the stimulation of other people’s ideas.’
Sir Ken Robinson – Internationally renowned thought leader in
creativity and innovation.
