Creative Emergence Process: New Ideas and Solutions

Michelle JamesMichelle James supports individuals and organizations in cultivating their signature processes, models, frameworks and approaches — their original emergent offerings. Using the natural principles of emergence with creativity, she developed the whole-brain, whole-systems Creative Emergence Process. It's used for drawing out that which is calling to emerge — new ideas, solutions, directions, strategies, services, products, processes, etc. As CEO of The Center for Creative Emergence, Michelle does this through consulting, facilitating, workshops and creative emergence coaching. Michelle's background includes organizational development, marketing communications and the media. She is an abstract painting artist, a performer of improvised plays with Precipice Improv, and a CoreSomatics® Movement and Bodywork Master Practitioner. She recently established Quantum Leap Business Improv — business improv theater for leaps in thinking, being, and innovating — and founded the Capitol Creativity Network in Washington, DC.
