Critical Thinking 

As leaders and managers we need to quickly diagnose problems and deal with them effectively and efficiently. Unfortunately our brains struggle to break down problems into manageable chunks, and we get tangled up in unforeseen issues. We also find it difficult to think creatively and this hampers our ability to come up with novel and useful solutions to key business issues. This workshop provides you with a number of really useful tools for breaking down problems, developing solutions and taking decisive action.
