TARGET THINKING: Solving Problems
 
A Critical and Creative Thinking Program

 

Easier and faster access to information can help organizations remain competitive but only if their employees are able to use the information wisely.

Unfortunately, when adults are flooded with new information, and pressured by deadlines, information overload occurs. As a result, adults can become defensive and highly selective when choosing information. In other words, they tend to rely on information that supports only their personal point of view - in effect, they develop a "comfort zone" that significantly inhibits their ability to think critically and creatively in a work environment.

How is Target Thinking different


Most creative thinking programs provide in-class 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 - when back in their normal (sometimes chaotic) work environment - it is not so easy to recreate those same free-flowing creative thoughts.

In our program, we will show participants how to use their
preferred thinking style and their own unique personality to master the critical and creative thinking process. As a result, they will be able to call upon their own cognitive strengths to quickly develop new and innovative ideas in any type of work environment.  Equally important, they will learn how to generate highly effective ideas in group settings even when dealing with others whom have different personalities, priorities, and motivations.

Actually, this program goes one step further.  We will also show participants how to effectively communicate and implement new ideas to others inside and outside of your organization.  After all, great ideas are only great if others understand their benefits and know how to correctly apply the ideas in the workplace. 

In this program, each participant will also receive a comprehensive workbook containing all the thinking strategies with worksheets to help them efficiently apply the strategies.  In addition, they will have unlimited online access to their instructor for six months following the training class to receive help with any of the thinking and problem solving strategies.
