Decision Making and Problem Solving Training

This Decision Making and Problem Solving training course looks at decision making and problem solving in the modern workplace.

"Again and again, the impossible decision is solved when we see that the problem is only a tough decision waiting to be made." Dr. Robert Schuller

Problem solving is the essence of what leaders exist to do.  A leader must never view a problem as a distraction, but rather as a strategic enabler for continuous improvement and opportunities previously unseen. As leaders, the goal is to minimize the occurrence of problems – which means we must be courageous enough to tackle them head-on before circumstances force our hands. ( Glenn Llopis)
