Teamwork can be hard! Have you ever been frustrated with a team member and how they approach a task? Why they problem solve differently than you? Why some people think “inside the box” and others can’t even “see the box”? The Kirton Adaption-Innovation Inventory (KAI) is a way to look at an individual’s problem-solving style and creativity. This training will enhance your understanding of team dynamics in problem solving and increase group cohesion, effectiveness, and team building.

Objectives:

  • Learn more about Kirton’s Adaption-Innovation Theory
  • Explore your own problem-solving style
  • Brainstorm how this can help you in your workplace and even in your personal life.
