From Conjunction Media:

Build your Capacity for Problem-Solving

Lightbulb Moments

Activate your Genius Mode with live and virtual learning sessions.

Creative Thinking: The ability to generate ideas that are new and useful.

For Businesses who need a thoughtful, independent-thinking, proactive workforce.

For Educational Institutions who want students who create original work, tackling tough problems.

Who am I?

“Creative Dave” Dubczak. I have an M.Ed and a decade of experience in education. I think creative problem-solving can change the world (Seriously, I do). Problems can be roadblocks, or building blocks. What do you want them to be?

Why do I?

Creative Problem-Solving comes naturally to me, but I noticed it doesn’t to many others. So I learned the processes, methods, and psychology, so I can teach it to as many organizations as possible.

How do I?

My workshops teach Divergent Thinking, Delayed Judgement, and conversation systems to elicit the best ideas, recognize they may not start perfect, and build on promising ideas until they are workable solutions.

What is the “Genius Mode?”

Research shows that a person’s ability to be creative can grow, and can improve with regular and intentional practice.

Creative thinking skills are a toolbox of thinking techniques that a person can use on-demand, not a born ability that some people don’t have.

These skills and techniques are usually not emphasized in schools, and therefore not brought into your workforce.

Once a person learns the tools and techniques, and has opportunities to regularly practice, this becomes a Genius Mode they can activate on demand.

Why is the “Genius Mode” important?

60% of CEOs say Creativity is the most important resource in keeping their businesses competitive (IBM, 2010)

75% of people believe they’re not living up to their creative potential (Adobe, 2012)

77% of CEOs say they can’t find the Creativity and Innovation Skills they need (PEW Research Center, 2017)

Companies that foster creativity enjoy a 1.5x greater market share (Adobe, 2015)

50% of customers will pay more for a superior good or service (Adobe, 2015)

“Dave taught an excellent class on the creative process and showed us specific steps and strategies for helping draw out the creative thinking from our students. Due to the socially-distant nature of 2020, Dave taught this class virtually, and he included many small group activities where every voice was heard. This was an active learning class. Each activity built up our understanding of the creative process.”

Kendi, Class Participant

“The class is very interesting and informative. It challenges you to think outside of the box and try new things you have never seen before. Also the tools and techniques that you are given are very useful to adapt to your current units within the classroom, and even get you to create new ones.”

Monica, Class Participant

“I asked Dave to help create a CRM for my real estate brokerage. Our discussion took us in many directions at first, yet as we continued, the focus began to narrow to a place that provided a couple of good options for a CRM and who would be available to help create it and possibly manage the CRM. In addition we landed on four or five innovative ideas of becoming a local expert who people would recognize and learn to trust. David’s system of managing a conversation brought out the best ideas from each individual in the group.”
