Dynamic and innovative organizations require leaders at all levels who can think strategically, anticipate issues, solve problems, and make decisions based on new and emerging information while keeping the long-term vision in mind.
In this workshop, you will have the opportunity to work with a variety of tools, applying them to an important challenge or opportunity in your own organization. You will develop greater awareness of your own biases and assumptions that may stand in the way of achieving results. You will learn how and when to apply different types of thinking—systems thinking, critical thinking, and creative thinking—to a problem or opportunity and how to work with stakeholders to make and implement decisions.
Participants will gain the ability to be able to:
Leaders, project managers, team members, and individual contributors whose work has an impact on the organization’s future.
This course has no prerequisites.
You will receive a course binder containing a copy of the presentation slides.
