CREATIVE PROBELM SOLVING
Problem Solving

In the past few decades, psychologists and business people alike have discovered that successful problem solvers tend to use the same type of process to identify and implement the solutions to their problems. This process works for any kind of problem, large or small. This training program will give participants an overview of the entire creative problem solving process, as well as key problem solving tools that they can use every day. This training program is designed to focus on the development of creative problem solving skills as a management competency toward achieving the organization goals. Problems are encounters by everybody, whether it is serious, urgent or growth as a catalyst towards success. This training program will teach you how to adopt problem solving skills to help develop your management skill by recognizing self-potential and contributing creative solutions to your organization. In this training program we will define “problem” and other situations that lend themselves to the creative problem solving process. We will introduce the concept of solving problems using a creative process. The creative problem solving process involves creativity. The problem solvers come up with solutions that are innovative, rather than obtaining help to learn the answers or implementing standard procedures. The creative problem solving process is at work anytime you identify solutions that have value or that somehow improve a situation for someone. This training program introduces common mental blocks to productive brainstorming, as well as techniques for dealing with the mental blocks. It also presents some ideas for stimulating creativity. The creative problem solving process requires creativity. However, many people feel that they are not creative. This is the sign of a mental block at work. Everyone can tap into creative resources in their brains. Sometimes, it just takes a little extra prodding. Creativity is not something to be turned on and off when needed. The potential for creativity is always there. We just need to learn how to access it. On-site training can be arranged in as little as 30 days depending on the requested dates.
