Waingels Challenges-Week 10

Enterprise Challenge

Creative Thinking

Businesses often need to think outside the box to solve problems! Circle Example

So for this week’s challenge I want you to think inside the circle and get creative!

Your Creativity Challenge: 

  1. Print off this circle sheet or draw 20+ circles roughly the same size on a sheet of paper.
  2. Set a timer for 5 minutes.
  3. Turn the circles into as many recognisable objects as you can in the timeframe you’ve got. The picture gives you a few ideas to get you started.

You can do this on your own, or as a group.  Perhaps you might want to get all your family to have a go, then share your ideas. 

Got some time to reflect?...

Look at how everyone tackled the challenge differently. Did some people ‘break the rules’ and combine circles together? Were the rules explicit or did we just assume them?  Who was the most creative? Are those people the ones that always seem to come up with the wacky ideas? Why might these people be just as important as the ones that use logic to solve a problem?
