The full CREATE CSI suite of programs

This online learning train the trainer course focuses on Program #1 and Module #1

CSI1.1: Harnessing Creative Intelligence (CQ) skills for a competitive business advantage. 

CSI1.1 is the first model in the CSI Suite and Program.

This CSI1 TTT and accreditation course is only available for licensed partners. (Please contact us or see options below)

CSI1 CORE course TTT Accreditation

CSI1 is all about facilitating leaders and or teams to understand CQ attributes  (CSI1.1) and then goes onto look at what blocks creativity (CSI1.2)  and what can be done about it.  (CSI1.3 and CSI1.4)

This CSI1 Train the Trainer courses will take a new facilitator through the steps and content needed to be able to run a CSI1 session (workshop/webinar).

During the TTT session and along with learning the content the facilitator will also be asked to create a proposal, (based on the client's needs) AND chose the best slides from the extensive PPT slide deck, videos, worksheets and Miroboard. (face to face and digital options) 

Taking this CSI1 TTT online course can replace the face to face 3-day train the trainer to some degree. However, this does not mean less time can be invested by the facilitator. The beauty of online learning is that the facilitator can self-pace and go back over at any time material they need to be reacquainted with. 

Inside this course, it will walk the trainee through the process and introduce when to open the CSI1 PPT slide deck and CSI1 apps (Padlet & Miroboards). 

This course comes with

  1. A full flow by way of online content to walk the facilitator through what is needed to learn the material and deliver it (this online course)
  2. A PPT slide deck,  complete with comprehensive leaders notes, references and case studies.
  3. Digital and printable workbooks
  4. Padlet (digital) and Flipcharts (face to face) 

The online course can then be complemented as needed with more targeted training, coaching, feedback and support from our directors.


Inside this CREATE suite is a whole ecosystem of blended learning opportunities. Including participants doing an advanced assignment. This course is a great prequel to any design thinking and our CSI2 courses.


If you are interested in licensing this program please contact TIRIAN.
