Manage Change and Practice Innovation by Becoming a Problem Solving Leader
Learn and practice a leader’s most valuable asset: the ability to think and act creatively.
We believe that leadership is the key to building a healthy organization that can deal effectively with change. We teach that leadership is the ability to create an environment that enables everyone to contribute productively. We focus on process rather than procedure, on personal effectiveness rather than prescriptive strategies.
The Problem Solving Leadership workshop has been growing and changing since 1974 to meet the changing needs of people in the workplace. The fundamental principle, however, remains the same: a leader’s most valuable asset is the ability to think and act clearly, creatively, and congruently. This is what we teach.
Develop your own problem solving style
PSL is built on sound principles of adult learning theory, general systems thinking, group process concepts, creativity and congruent human interaction.
The simulations and other activities are designed to involve you totally in the experience of improving your problem solving effectiveness. You will take away an increased awareness of your own problem solving style and an understanding and appreciation of the styles of others. You will see how valuing differences can enhance innovation and increase, rather than constrain, your problem solving options.
Work on issues of most interest to you…and your organization.
We have designed this workshop to be practical and applicable to the modern workplace. Your problems and concerns provide a frame of reference for all the workshop activities. At the end of the workshop, when you review your original learning objectives, you will discover that you have reframed the original problems and gained insight into the actual issues.
What you will learn
- to be a leader while being a member of a team
- to focus your thinking while in chaos
- to make change a productive, creative event
- to build truly effective teams
- to design projects people really want to work on
- to observe exactly what is happening
- to use tools of effective communication
- to handle conflict in problem solving groups
PSL is strictly limited to 24 participants. In order to ensure many perspectives, we only take four people from a specific organization.
