What’s Shannon’s favorite course right now?
Creativity is an important part of who I am and what makes me happy. Sometimes it can be hard to see how we can use our creativity in our jobs that feel more analytical. An Introduction to Creativity in the Workplace: Find innovative solutions for difficult problems by Compono is an insightful course that will help you use your creative muscles at work to solve complex problems. I love the approach of this provider and it made me think about my work just a little differently.
