Course Overview

In just about any industry or any role, we are almost constantly involved in solving problems. We make progress by constantly searching for better solutions.  

Each of us is different and, therefore, thinks in different ways. By better understanding how we and others prefer to think, we can make better decisions, and find solutions which work for the organisation as whole.

In this workshop you will develop the skills to distinguish between relevant and irrelevant information. You will practice solving problems in groups using a variety of established techniques. You will learn good brainstorming techniques as well as how to improve your relationships at work by adapting your preferred thinking style to that of others and in so doing producing creative and highly effective solutions.
