Problem Solving Techniques

Outline (1/2 day session)

We are all faced with problems. Some are relatively easy to solve, others are more complicated. Often we jump to conclusions about what is the right solution without knowing the full facts. We allow our feelings and prejudices to interfere with logic. This intensive workshop will give you a simple process to make sure you have the information you need, know how to use it, and can arrive at the right solution in a way that is logical, concise and easy to understand.
