Target Thinking - Solving Problems

Creativity and Innovation

Target Learning
Do you sometimes...
...Have difficulty thinking creatively under pressure?
...Find it difficult to critically analyze new information?
...Feel overwhelmed with your workload?
If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, you may be experiencing negative stress. This type of stress occurs when you feel you don't have control of the situation - as a result your higher level thinking skills are often overshadowed by your more basic thinking skills (which prevent you from accessing your more complex and detailed memories and experiences).
So, why do some people consistently excel under pressure? For the most part, they develop coping mechanisms using their personal learning and thinking style. For example, they regain control of the situation by structuring information and schedules according to their most comfortable way of thinking.
IN THIS PROGRAM YOU WILL LEARN HOW TO:
* Overcome barriers to critical & creative thinking
* Proactively identify potential problems at work
* Develop flexible & practical solutions to problems
* Stimulate others to think critically and creatively
* Critically evaluate new information from all sources
* Collect & analyze information using multiple perspectives
* Coordinate resources for holistic problem solving
* Communicate and implement your solutions effectively
WHAT MAKES THIS PROGRAM DIFFERENT?
Most creative thinking programs provide activities to help participants "loosen up" - to free their minds and allow the creative juices to flow. However, these activities are always conducted in a controlled training environment - without threat of consequence. As a result, many participants quickly discover, once they are back in their normal (real-world) work environment, it is not so easy to recreate those same free-flowing creative thoughts.
In this program, we will show you how to use your preferred thinking style and your own unique personality to master the creative thinking process. As a result, once you leave our seminar you will be able to call upon your own cognitive strengths to quickly develop new and innovative ideas in any type of work (or learning) environment.

Yes, we can customize and offer this program on-site at a location of your choosing.
