Organizations that want to shift their competitive positioning face the difficult task of developing a leadership and management style that reflects the organization’s vision and helps managers achieve that vision. Organisations that pursue excellence and achieve it are often those that build a sense of “community” or positive team atmosphere. Brainstorming and problem solving is a natural process. Problem solving is best done with a proven process. Proper brainstorming and problem solving are techniques to reverse engineer any situation, identify the cause(s) of a problem, resolve it, and prevent it from occurring again. This saves your organization time, money, and resources.

This training course will look at how professionals with a clear understanding of the importance of effective working well with others to create a high-performing team that realizes the importance of continuous improvement, being a solution-seeker vs. a problem-solver and knowing that collaboration is a vital resource.  This course introduces delegates to proven models to separate causes from symptoms; develop a range of potential solutions; walk through a plan to implement and test these solutions and measure the results. In today’s turbulent business environment, it’s not enough to do things differently. We must do different things.

Our highly practical experiential learning method is results-oriented; based on an adult learning concept. This training course uses a range of approaches to learning, including experiential group activities, individual exercises, mini-case studies, role plays and syndicate discussions. Formal inputs are used to introduce underpinning theory. A key part of the learning process is sharing the differing experiences participants bring, as well as experimenting with novel – and sometimes challenging – techniques. The course will reinforce key concepts within an inspiring and engaging learning environment.
