WS3: Harnessing “models’ of excellence” generative thinking patterns

Workshop Introduction

Walt Disney’s ability to take something from imagination, engineer it and turn it to a concrete expression, that has been creatively and positively impacting peoples’ experience until nowadays, encapsulates a fundamental process of ingenuity. His innovative approach would employ a systemic flow of thinking and organizing information around generating, synthesizing, refining a successful outcome. His approach manifested a creative strategic thinking model.
Modelling being the foundation tool of Neuro Linguistic Programming makes it possible to map successful thinking strategies of people with special talents like Walt Disney. The system of NLP explores initially sophisticated approaches and demonstrates into simplified steps the sequence of such peoples’ mindset in order to design, organize, perform and excel in ventures.
The basic premise is “patterns of generativity & success can be modeled and recreated”
The modelling methodology combines :

  • an analysis approach for depicting what strategies people use, what is the difference that makes the difference in excelling and
  • a step by step synthesis approach to process and recreate the states, mindsets & behaviors that contribute to exceptional outcomes and results.

The scope of the presentation is to examine success factors on models’ of excellence thinking processes, discuss processes, critical phases & steps that account for high performance and framework key transformational concepts for entrepreneurial plans connected to own vision, mission, values and strategies.
