Featured Class
Problem Solving and Stragetic Planning

Have any of these situations ever happened to you? You’re tackling a problem only to realize it’s the same problem you previously “solved”. You feel overwhelmed when it’s time to make a decision because there are so many options from which to choose. You’ve come up with what you believe is a fantastic solution to a work-related issue only to have your boss tell you that your idea won’t actually solve the problem.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Think through situations both logically and creatively to arrive at sound conclusions and decisions
  • Develop creative attitudes and learn to see all problems have opportunities
  • Establish appropriate criteria for making a decision
  • Brainstorm ideas that address the real goal
  • Test how sound your ideas are in relation to the goal and criteria
  • Evaluate your ideas objectively
  • The next class is on January 8, 2018. Please register to join us on this date. More >
