For Business Professionals

It is a grand irony that professional business culture often requires clear communication and dynamic problem solving in an environment that is rigid, normalized, and in extreme cases mentally claustrophobic. While organization, structure, and rules are an essential part of a successful company, by definition they do not foster the energy and brilliance of the mind’s creativity. DSDS seminars define and cultivate individual employee creativity that functions within the operating structure of the workplace and addresses its particular demands.
