Think Like a Genius® Workshop

What is it?

The Think Like a Genius® process realizes human potential through purposeful play.  It provides a better way to:

  • Brainstorm and express ideas
  • Invent and innovate
  • Create and share new knowledge
  • Solve urgent problems
  • Set and achieve goals
  • Discover and apply people’s creative genius, which enables us all to realize our potential

The TLG process helps people “give form" to their thoughts, feelings, ideas, knowledge, and experiences by creating symbolic models in response to an important or urgent issue they want to work on.  When you make a model, you show what is on your mind and make your intangible thoughts as tangible, touchable and as real as possible to help communicate them. 

The symbolic models provide the key information and knowledge you need in order to “mine” them for ideas and insights by asking basic, insight-provoking questions.  A picture is worth a thousand words. Using common building materials, people are guided to make and explore the meanings of their models.  When you make a model, you show what is on your mind and make your intangible thoughts real.  The model serves as a kind of common language to bridge people’s worlds, passions, and personal interests.

The Think Like a Genius® workshop develops capacity in any environment.  It is designed as a two-day workshop to help establish new behaviors that further individual aspirations and those of the organization.
