  • work with teams create breakthrough concepts & ensure adoption
  • manage major transformational change
  • create a culture of wellbeing and lower stress (at college, work, home)
  • generate new products
  • help manage diversity
  • bridge gaps or mediate between individuals or teams
  • optimally solve difficult cross-functional problems
  • improve communications (in all forms, including internal & external)

The KAI Accreditation Course covers aspects of problem solving and creativity as it relates to the individual, working in teams, and leading change. The KAI is based in Adaption-Innovation (A-I) theory, which is the only known theory able to explain how a measurable dimension of an individual’s personality (problem-solving style) is connected to the science of teams and preferences for leading change.
