Innovation and Creative Problem Solving

Coloring Outside the Lines™ helps participants effectively use their innate creativity to their benefit in both their professional and personal lives. This high-energy, participatory, humorous ‘signature’ keynote or workshop has received outstanding reviews from diverse audiences around the world. Certified Speaking Professional, Jeff Tobe, challenges you to step outside your comfort zone in positioning your product, your service or yourself more creatively than ever before. He provides the insight you require to give yourself the ‘competitive edge’ for which we all strive in any profession. To be competitive in today’s marketplace, you must be creative and innovative. Actually, you must stay ahead of the marketplace. Most people feel they are not the most creative person they know. In reality, everyone is creative each time they question the ‘norm’. Each time they challenge themselves to look at a challenge from a different perspective.

Tobe is not just entertaining-he provides real ‘tools’ to being more creative. The focus of Coloring Outside the Lines™ is on creatively managing change that is inevitable with innovation, as we approach the 21st century. Jeff Tobe believes that it is time to revamp our traditional belief system in business. He encourages participants to “stop looking in our rear view mirrors to see how things have been done in the past”. Instead, he urges you to “look through your windshield to see what is coming down the road ahead in your specific industry”.

What makes you or your business different than anyone else out there? Attendees tackle the issues of VALUE vs. THE PERCEIVED COST of doing business with you, working with you or consulting with you. Tobe offers techniques to getting ‘internal’ and ‘external’ clients’ to buy into your innovative ideas when you do develop them. He addresses the concept of seeing the world through their eyes-from their perspective! Most important, his sessions are upbeat, interactive and FUN!
