The Facilitator's Guide provides step-by-step instructions for administering the profile and, optionally, leading a workshop based on the companion Creative Style Profile. The Profile is designed not to tell participants IF they are creative, but HOW they are creative. It is not a test of creativity but an exploration of where their creative strengths lie. The Facilitator's Guide gives you the tools you need to score the profile and contains suggested scripts, individual and group exercises and activities, as well as overhead, handout, and flip-chart masters.
