A workshop to help entrepreneurs work more effectively with the seemingly limited resources available for new ventures. Creativity with Constraints uses storytelling and creative templates to challenge the way entrepreneurs approach problems and is now available for other organisations.
Entrepreneurs have limited resources to work with
I draw on my own experiences of running small businesses and embarking on new projects to show how I have challenged my own assumptions about what is possible in managing a business career and personal life.
Visual tools help us see our own limiting assumptions
We use visual template to help participants recognise everything that they thought held them back from a successful enterprise. Many entrepreneurs cite lack of money, lack of time and family commitments as problems, but these very limitations can be the source of innovative solutions for meeting business needs without compromising on other aspects of their life.
The creative storytelling template helps embed each person’s personal learning and to make changes to the way they run their business and life
This workshop was initially designed for Catalyst, innovative business skills course for social entrepreneurs in Western Australia’s Midwest. Read what entrepreneurs in WA’s midwest thought about this program here.
It is rare to have someone who is all of: creative, professional, curious, wise, creative and offering something unique. Rachael is all that, and was willing to both design and improvise to meet needs of participants. The bespoke workshop session she delivered as part of ‘Catalyst’ continues to be talked about by participants and seems to have contributed to significant positive changes in some of their lives and enterprises.” (Andrew Outhwaite, Executive Officer, Pollinators)
