Effective Problem Solving and Decision Making

Thu 14 Mar 2019


Do you recognise any of these problem solving approaches in yourself: not looking before you leap, leaving it to fate, letting someone else decide, putting it off until tomorrow or acting ‘on a hunch’? Or simply feeling overwhelmed and not knowing what to do? If so, you may find it useful to learn a more planned and rational approach to problem solving and making decisions.

This short session will focus on how to break down a problem and work towards a justifiable and confident decision to achieve the best outcome you can. It will focus on work-related scenarios however the key principles are applicable in all areas of life.
