'Improvise, Adapt and Overcome’. Three seemingly simple words forming a well-quoted motto, though often difficult to achieve in practice. The speed and pressure of the information age has challenged organisations to build a workforce capable of meeting the demands of constant game-changing
innovation. Those who succeed stay with, or ahead of the curve.

Charged to change habits of mind, 2creatEffects has helped thousands of individuals, teams, and organisations acquire the habits of mind, working practices, and culture needed to thrive. Although our approach embraces knowledge, experience, and institutional wisdom, we encourage challenging the status-quo, embrace diversity of thought, and strive towards making thinking outside of the box the norm. We call this Dynamic Thinking.
