Dynamic Problem Solving

By Elena Leibbrand and Jeffrey Baumgartner

In this workshop, you will learn an exciting new technique for understanding and solving problems: you will learn how to impersonate the problem.

Using creative thinking techniques combined with the vocabulary of movement, you will learn how to give form to a problem, or any situation in which you need to take action, through physical expression. The aim is to give you another, deeper insight into the situation which, in turn, enables you to generate new approaches and hopefully solutions.

Although you will not dance in this workshop, you will use physical warm-up, movement and body language to express ideas. You will also learn about how your mind interprets situations and constructs solutions.

The aim of this workshop is to give you a powerful new means of approaching, interpreting and solving problems.

This experimental workshop on Dynamic Problem Solving is the result of conversations between Elena and Jeffrey about corporate creativity, anticonventional thinking, dance movement and getting people physically involved in thinking about complex situations. It is their first ever presentation of their idea and so promises to be an exciting and enlightening experience for all. Do join us!


About Elena and Jeffrey

Elena spent some 12 years in the corporate world, the European institutions and working in the highly stressful environment of cruise ships.

At the same time, she immersed herself in social and contemporary dancing for over 15 years, and is training in massage and energy work. Three years ago, she turned around her professional life to become a folk dance teacher and administrator of the dance school Frisse Folk.

She sees immense potential in mixing those two worlds, in "bringing movement into the office".

Jeffrey is an author and creativity specialist. He has written The Way of the Innovation Master, a business innovation book, and The Insane Journey, a controversial science fiction humour novel. When not writing Jeffrey speaks and holds workshops about creativity around the world. He is also the co-founder and co-manager of the Brussels Imagination Club. You can find his web site at
