About This Class

Building creative and innovative teams requires a great deal of thought.

Some of the tips I am sharing here could be taken during the initial recruitment process to focus on the strengthening of any existing teams. Other tips include the easing-in of new members into the teams.

Usually managers just decide to recruit a new team member the old fashioned way, by asking a few bog-standard questions and based on the recruiters feelings the applicant may or may not get hired.

In this class I am sharing 12 ideas of how the approach of recruiting and building a stronger and more creative team can be challenged in new and more innovative ways. They may not always be the way many people would approach their creative team building strategies, thus the title of 'controversial ideas'.

With an open mind and your new-found interest, do join me in this class.
