Business is full of making rationalised decisions to problems that arise. Those that can think logically, weighing up opportunities against possible effects quickly and effectively will be the most successful. This is a challenging and highly practical course that goes far beyond standard
team building and lateral constructive thinking.
We explore the process of decision making and think about how our brains work through possible outcomes. This knowledge then informs how we approach problem identification and solution. We propose an effective process for solving problems and making informed decisions that can have wide reaching positive effects on our professional lives.
We also look at what happens next and how we can consciously learn from the decisions that we make. Making a bad decision always hurts but sometimes good things come from it if we have learned from it. The most successful people are those that actively learn from their mistakes.

The old ways are the best ways!
I’ve recently had the privilege of revisiting some tools and techniques that I first learnt way back in the 1980’s working for a Dupont manufacturing division.
