Event Sponsor

Complex problem solving, creative thinking, critical thinking and collaboration have all been identified as key 21st Century skills. However, the education system has failed at preparing employees to exercise these skills in the workplace.

In this training, participants will develop their thinking skills and creativity, and acquire the structured process and tools that increase their ability to engage in solving complex problems.

Learn creative problem-solving skills and tools that can be used to address everyday challenges as well as complex problems.

  • Know when and how to engage a team in critical thinking vs creative thinking.
  • Practice asking provocative questions that engage employees in problem solving
  • Develop the ability to identify what type of thinking is most needed for each challenge. Do you need information and expertise or ideas and new options? Or do you need to test potential solutions?
