Course Description/Agenda


WHY "CRITICAL" THINKING AND "CREATIVE" PROBLEM SOLVING?

First, let’s begin by acknowledging that you’re smart. So this course has nothing to do with whether or not you’re a brainiac. We completely agree that you’re a pretty sharp cookie … after
all, you’re smart enough to be reading this brochure!

So this course isn’t about raising your IQ. Instead, think of this training like looking at your world in "high definition": We’re going to help you see things more clearly and from a very different
perspective that will lead to new ideas … new solutions … and true breakthroughs for your organization and your career!

This seminar is your chance to see things you simply don’t see when you’re elbows-deep in things to be done and surrounded by people demanding your undivided attention (you know … pretty much every day at work!).

When you attend Secrets of Successful Critical Thinking & Creative Problem Solving, you’ll spend a very important day off the "workday treadmill," and devote a full day to exploring your
challenges from a fresh perspective. you’ll learn how to …

  • Challenge what you "know" to be a fact and see new viable avenues open up before your eyes
  • Uncover biases you probably didn’t even know you had!
  • Develop "detective" skills so you ask ALL the right questions required to reach on-target conclusions
  • Understand how to assess the risks of any situation or solution
  • Generate creative alternatives to the way you do things now

That’s why this training is perfect for you … it gives you that edge that only a few people have: the ability to creatively work through any problem to create on-target decisions that will hold up over time. It’s a critical skill for the workplace that’ll assure you’re always seen as highly valuable … and in high demand!
