Breakthroughs with Creativity Consulting
Consulting is giving specialized advice people or organizations. It differs from coaching in that the coach assists on a one-on-one basis to help clients find their own answers. Shaqe consults businesses, non-profits, schools, universities, and health care facilities to discuss the creativity and innovation needs of an organization.
Often an organization will look at development from a business or educational perspective, rather than a creativity perspective. By looking through the lens of creativity an organization can achieve breakthroughs that sometimes can be thought of as unimaginable. Shaqe uses a process-oriented approach that unfolds possible forms of innovation that may lie dormant within an organization.
Organic and Systemized Process
Shaqe uses an organic and systemized process to evaluate and work with an organization. First, by identifying the problem areas, which can lead to insight to the creative needs of an organization. Second, by looking at the employees and management who can play a key factor in the role of creativity in the organization. Thirdly, the philosophy, products, and services, which play a key factor in implementing innovation.
Consulting with Shaqe is process-oriented, and involves looking at where the organization is currently at, and then looking at its future goals. She uses a scaffolding technique to assist and monitor the kind of changes that can occur. An organization may not at first know what kind of change would be effective, but the process-oriented approach allows for the direction to unfold.
Benefits are Far-Reaching
Creativity consulting can benefit an organization from a broad and specific perspective. It provides the organization with many “aha” moments that create innovation. It benefits the organization through a broad approach by fine tuning the vision, identity and branding of the organization.

Some of the specifics that creativity consulting can generate are: idea development, and or new products or services or new strategies and approaches focusing on innovation. Shaqe utilizes a teaching format to educate about creativity, so that management and employees find greater initiative, excitement, new viewpoints to problems, and a know-how to tap into individual and group creativity.
