Triviation starts by gaining a clear understanding of the key objectives of your organization. Weeks before the presentation of your Triviation program, an in-depth strategic input session via telephone will establish the key points to address. After careful research and analysis, Gene Jones will develop a unique and exciting program to achieve your objectives.
Using a modified game show format, Gene Jones initially leads participants through a series of questions designed to activate breakthrough thinking toward your company goals. Triviation then serves as a ‘breakthrough gymnasium’, stretching the limits of every participants’ mental abilities by introducing asymmetrical thinking; a non-linear thought process serving as the foundation for breakthroughs in your organization. Once participants are energized by asymmetrical thinking, their attention can be directed towards important business goals.
This innovative program presents and analyzes the nine most essential character traits and skills that lead to productive solutions for the diverse problems and challenges we all encounter during our lifetimes. Mastering and combining these creativity pillars greatly increases each participant’s ability to turn dreams into realities and live a more creative and fulfilling life. The principles of The Nine Pillars of Creativity are applicable to every phase of life…including interpersonal relationships, business ventures, education, health issues, science, sports performance, negotiations & conflict resolution, event planning, food preparation, creative writing, theatre, film, works of art, and all varieties of problem-solving.
Art of the Question sessions teach the process of creating effective goal-oriented questions while also providing criteria to eliminate unproductive questions. This session demonstrates the power of questions to illuminate discovery and refinement of ideas, focusing on the company agenda as revealed in the strategic input session. Questions are used to create insightful conversations that lead to the uninhibited exchange of ideas and most importantly – breakthroughs. Before the Art of the Question concludes, your group will have identified and worked through the core questions to drive your organization’s agenda ahead at an accelerated pace. This is the birthplace of breakthrough thinking!
Brainstorming sessions are where new ideas and answers grow to fruition. Brainstorming sessions can be used to develop implementation strategies as well as idea generation. This is where your roadmap to success is designed. With the room full of minds now working at their highest potential, everyone’s heightened mental capacities are directed towards your organization’s specific objectives. To optimally capitalize on your team’s newly activated breakthrough thinking, we recommend that brainstorming sessions immediately follow the Art of the Question session. Brainstorming and ideation sessions can be directed by Gene Jones or a leader from your organization. This session can include creativity boosting techniques as well as insights into refining, combining and moving ideas into the Action Phase. As participants leverage asymmetric thinking towards corporate objectives, the results are always extraordinary.
