Unlock your problem-solving
potential with the creative,
analytical and critical thinking skills
you will develop on this exciting
and stimulating workshop
Most people, once they leave the formal education system, do not focus on any further learning or on continuing to develop their thinking skills. As their careers progress, they become more expert in a few things, but less capable in dealing with or understanding things outside their domain of expertise. Research shows that most people only use a fraction of their cognitive abilities yet the ongoing exercise of the brain function can reduce mental debilitation throughout life.
This challenging, but entertaining, course revisits many of the thinking skills that lie dormant in the average person. The course explores various kinds of individual and group problem solving approaches and various thinking styles.
Delegates will go away with a fresh outlook on organisational problem solving, and be motivated to expand their cognitive horizons.
• Learn to describe the problem-solving process
• Identify various problem-solving techniques and apply these in solving business problems
• Understand thinking models and practise exercises to help in thinking outside-the-box and generate a larger solution space
• Understand creativity and blocks to creativity
• Arrive at objective, well-reasoned decisions in a reasonable time
The course delivery comprises instructor-led seminars interspersed with extensive practical exercises for both the group and the individual
Students will learn by experience and practical exercises. To complete the course, delegates are required to attend the full course and actively participate in the exercises, discussion & feedback. Assessment of competency is done by the course facilitator. The mechanism is observation.
The course is designed to be completed in the full 2 days. There is no homework. However, if delegates take up the challenge of the course, they can expect to spend at least half an hour a day, for the rest of their lives, honing their problem-solving and thinking skills!
