Creative Problem Solving

A highly interactive and experiential 2-day programme designed to help future leaders become creative problem solvers and enablers of positive change.

Being a problem solver can help you stand out as a leader. Finding things that aren’t going well and coming up with ways to fix them can be a true differentiator. However, it’s important to realise that being a problem solver isn’t just an ability; it’s a mindset that drives people to bring out the best in themselves and others. Rather than accepting the status quo, true problem solvers proactively shape their environment in a positive way.

In this immersive and dynamic development programme, complemented by our technology to gamify the learning, we explore the results-driven mindset and examine the creative thinking strategies and behaviours that drive effective problem-solving.

Focusing on diversity and the impact of groupthink we’ll look at problem-solving within teams, using De Bono’s theories as a framework for understanding thinking styles and how leveraging different personalities and perspectives can help create more rounded and robust solutions.

Building on the principle that true problem-solvers proactively shape their environment in a positive way, teams will be tasked with identifying and designing a smart solution to drive business improvement and create very real impact. With the buy-in of senior leaders, this can serve not only as an exciting culmination of the programme, but a space for future leaders to influence the business and demonstrate their value.
