Top Tip before attending Thabiso's session - Thabiso says "Just show up with an open mind, be willing to trust the process...and bring 2 sets of post it notes"

Presentation details...

Did you ever experience a brainstorm session that got stuck in a discussion? Clashes between creative and critical people happen all the time, sometimes these clashes happen within us.  Fortunately there is an easy way to prevent this. Funnily enough, the solution comes from the Walt Disney Studios. 


Walt Disney is known as one of the most outstanding and most successful business leaders of the 20th century.  Like Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft, he not only influenced our way of processing information, he also changed the way we perceive reality. The secret of his nearly unlimited creativity, which was unconscious to him, has been moulded into a model that can be applied to any personal and organizational planning operation. 


The Circle of Creativity was developed by Robert Dilts, based on the successful strategies of Walt Disney.  The approach was developed through individual interviews with friends and colleagues of Disney. 


Thabiso Mailula will be presenting a process derived from the Disney Model, which he calls the Disney Model with a Twist, as this process has been modified for the business context. 


Disney Model with a Twist is a model for effective and creative development of personal and professional plans.  It helps you to transfer an idea into the input for a plan with structure connected to your values.
