Purpose: Working in an organization involves two crucial skills – solving problems and making decisions. Yet, leaders often struggle with how to help others become better at these essential skills.
Solve Problems, Make Sound Decisions explores leadership strategies, problem-solving methods, and a complete problem-solving process that leaders can use to teach and guide others through problem-solving and decision-making.
Process: Participants use their real-time business problems to practice and explore specific aspects of problem-solving and decision-making. They also examine a variety of strategies for building these skills in others. Participants come away with a repeatable, teachable five-step process that involves clarifying the problem, identifying ideas, deciding on actions, executing the plan, and reviewing outcomes.
Payoff: Upon completion of this workshop, participants will:
- Be able to explain the fundamental nature of problem-solving and decision-making and their relationship.
- Know various leadership strategies for building others into better problem solvers and decision-makers.
- Be equipped with a five-step process for problem-solving and decision-making that they can use on their own, with individuals, and with groups.
- Learn new methods for brainstorming, creative thinking, and decision-making.
