Critical Thinking and Creative Problem-solving - Iqaluit

Today's work environment is increasingly complex and ambiguous. At the same time, our managers and stakeholders are demanding we come up with more creative and innovation solutions to the problems we face. How can you find solutions and make decisions when faced with uncertainty? How do you respond to the demand for more innovative approaches in your process? This workshop will provide you with creative processes and tools that strike the right balance between critical thinking and creative solutions. You'll receive your personal FourSight ™ Breakthrough Thinking Profile and discover how your thinking preferences can enhance or hinder how you and your team engage in the creative problem solving process. You'll be introduced to attitudes and tools that will help you build more creative solutions; the distinct phases of the creative problem solving process; strategies for gaining acceptance of your ideas and when to use critical versus creative thinking.

At the end of this workshop, you'll be able to:

  • Engage more productively in the creative problem solving process
  • Use critical thinking and creative problem solving tools to develop more creative solutions and make better decisions
  • Identify personal actions for continuing the development of your critical thinking and creative problem solving skills
