SP10 Strategic Problem Solving: A Kinetic Experience in Physical Listening

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Discover strategies for entering kinetic dialogue with others, which focus on our untapped capacity for observing, attending and responding to the environment and other moving bodies via tactile, visual and auditory investigation. We begin with exploring attending, observing and strategic decision-making via processes used by groups ranging from performers to the Naval War College. This approach nudges aside assumptions, accesses unexpected choices, and asks us to consider our accountability for making choices. We explore the politics of choice-making as creative individuals. You will:
• Engage in a process of personal discovery about creativity, communication and decision making.
• Gain new skill sets and strategies that will enhance your creativity.
• Engage in evocative dialogue and reflection to apply the concepts and learning experienced in this workshop.
Movers of all ages and abilities are welcome. This workshop is led by one of the CPSI 2017 Spotlight presenters.
