Thinking-Outside-the-Box Workshop

So much more than the competition!
And, at a great discount for Web site Visitors

For more than 10 years, Our Customers have looked to Business Basics as a trusted developer of lean management tutorials, seminars, courses and training materials. Training options that help improve the spirit and performance of individuals, teams, organizations and companies.

One of our Customers saying it better than we can:

"Thank Bill for the "Free-be". I can already see where I can apply much of it to my office operation. By the way, I did not just buy the "Thinking outside the Box" program I bought the "Performance Measurement Training Package" of which "Thinking Out-side the Box" was part of. The total program has been reviewed and re-reviewed many times already and many parts used to train some of my staff. Thanks for a great product."

Thinking-Outside-the-Box e-Book: What and Why?

Thinking-Outside-the-Box refers to the capacity of individuals and businesses to see any situation from fresh and new perspectives.  Moreover, it refers to the capacity of individuals and business to act highly effectively on these fresh and new perspectives.

Thinking-Outside-the-Box continuously requires individuals and businesses to challenge and expand their way of thinking. Thinking-Outside-the-Box provides ways to generate and implement innovative ideas and solutions to address difficult (and even not so difficult) situations.

This is what sets us apart from our peers in today's extremely demanding way of life.  Thinking-Outside-the-Box is not a luxury, it is a necessity!

Thinking-Outside-the-Box can be used to ensure optimal effectiveness in Decision Making, Problem Solving, Strategic Planning, Personal Growth, New Product Development, Conflict Resolution to Artistic Inspiration to name but a few. In effect, it can be used for every conceivable (and inconceivable) situation.

The reality is that everybody can cultivate and improve their Thinking-Outside- the-Box skills.

If you've ever said, there must be a better way... there is!

Do you want to optimize personal and company success? If so... you need to identify and master the basics of thinking-outside-the-box.. Many historic, recurring day-to-day problems (perhaps the same problems that plague your operation) can be permanently eliminated by a tenacious execution of new ideas generated by this Thinking-Outside-the-Box Training Package.

Thinking-Outside-the-Box skills are greatly required by everybody. Each and everybody need to continuously challenge and expand their ways of thinking to enhance personal and business effectiveness.  Moreover, each and everybody needs to be able to optimally act on their expanded ways of thinking to enhance personal and business effectiveness. 

However, the truth is that not too many people can say that they are truly Thinking-Outside-the-Box as a way of life. The good news is that Thinking-out- of-the-Box is something that can be exercised and improved.

Ideas, insights, tools and techniques 

The principles presented by the Thinking-Outside-the-Box e-Book are so fundamental that it is applicable to each and every person, whether in an organization or an individual setting.

"I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by a conscious endeavor" 
                                                               Henry David Thoreau

"People are always blaming circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can't find them, make them" 
                                                             George Bernard Shaw

Thinking-Outside-the-Box e-Book: Challenging Existing Concepts

Each and everybody that wants to live optimally, need to challenge existing concepts and perceptions by applying Thinking-Outside-the-Box principles.

We realistically acknowledge that this training package is not the only way to become a more effective and creative person by optimally Thinking-Outside- the-Box. There are other ways to improve one's Thinking-Outside-the-Box skills as well.  For example: You could read books on the topic to get a better understanding and insight, or you could attend a offsite e-Book, or you could learn from colleagues and/or friends who are proficient thinkers, amongst others. All these options have merit and are worthwhile. Moreover, these options do not need to be mutually exclusive. For example, you could do all or any combination of the mentioned options (or you could even do options that have not been mentioned!) to become a more proficient and creative thinker.

However, for those who do not want to spend $400-$600 per person per day (and can not afford time away from the office in attending a worthwhile creativity seminar), or do not want to spend weeks searching the web for usable information, or those that do not have mentors for creativity, we feel that our training package provides a very valuable additional way of gaining an excellent understanding and mastering of Thinking-Outside-the-Box principles, because:

It is easy to follow : It provides a pleasing and very user-friendly presentation, with colorful visuals, 

It is focused: it encapsulates training into focused content. (This is because there are a number of practical exercises and group sessions that are typically done in a physical workshop. With the "Thinking-Outside-the-Box e-Book" you can decide yourself how much time you want to spent on exercising sessions.)

It is proven: It encapsulates time-tested principles that produce powerful results.

It is effective: It can be done at your own convenient time and you do not need to take time off from work.

It is affordable: It is a very cost effective and affordable way to improve your Thinking-Outside-the-Box skills.

It is accessible: It can be used whenever required at the "touch of a button" as a learning aid or refresher.

It is practical: It provides a Thinking-Outside-the-Box toolbox, which provides you with techniques and guidelines to apply your Thinking-Outside-the-Box skills.

Purchasing the training package is completely risk free: we provide a full no questions asked, money back guarantee.

With this creative thinking training you and your company will:

Transform visions and strategic plans into reality

Convert finger pointers into problem solvers 

Minimize day-to-day business stress levels 

Gain well deserved recognition and rewards

Optimize results from performance measurements

Improve speed, quality, and customer satisfaction

Reduce operating costs and improve bottom line

Reach your full growth and earnings potential.

What Bill Gaw has to say about this e-Book:

"This e-e-Book is fantastic, a real-world, presentation on how to stimulate creative thinking and transform it into effective problem solving. It can transform visions into reality and its contribution to a company's  bottom line will be significant. I guarantee it!"

Thinking-Outside-the-Box e-Book

The diagram provides a high-level conceptual view of this Thinking-out-of-the-Box e-e-Book. Use it to ensure that you have a good understanding of the overall structure of the e-e-Book's content.  It is suggested that you print this page for reference purposes.  This e-e-Book is structured into three main topics:

The first topic explains Why Thinking-out-of-the-Box is required. It is very important to understand Why Thinking-out-of-the-Box is required. Understanding why Thinking-out-of-the-Box is required provides compelling motivation for actually using the Thinking-out-of-the-Box techniques.

The second topic discusses different ways to Thinking-out-of-the-Box. Thinking-out-of-the-Box involves a number of synergistic aspects, which are all required for optimal effectiveness. The most optimal Thinking-out-of-the-Box results would be achieved when all four of these aspects are jointly integrated into our daily living. Firstly, it is very important to understand our own personality, passion and creative style. If we understand and align our lives with our personality, passion and creative style, we optimize our ability to Think-out-of-the-Box.

Secondly, we need ways to overcome the limits in the way our mind functions. We need to overcome the established patterns in our minds. This is achieved with the use of idea hooks or idea Jolts, as we call it.

Thirdly, we need to realize that by combining concepts and ideas from different cultures and disciplines, we can multiply our creativity and dramatically enhance our Thinking-out-of-the-Box results. Fourthly, we should never underestimate the power of our subconscious mind, which keeps on solving problems, without us even being aware of this. You have probably experienced those a-ha! moments, when, for example, you are sitting in the bath and a solution pops up in your mind to a problem that you were not even thinking of at the time.

The third topic provides a toolbox, which would assist us to continuously Think-out-of-the-Box on a daily basis. It ensures that we effectively apply the things that we have learned about optimally Thinking-out-of-the-Box. The Thinking-out-of-the-Box “tools” is a set of steps, ideas and guidelines that could be followed to expand and challenge our existing thinking.  Individually, and as a group, we need to be able to optimally Think-out-of-the-Box. The Thinking-out-of-the-Box toolbox in this e-e-Book contains tools for both individuals and for groups.

More often than not, these tools are common sense, and not “exotic”, so to speak. It provides powerful ways for us to see any situation from fresh and new perspectives. Moreover, it provides powerful ways for us to act highly effectively on these fresh and new perspectives.
