1 – Collaborative Problem Solving
We all bring very diverse ranges of experience, education, backgrounds and knowledge to the table. These are
powerful forces for addressing problems. However, we don’t always capitalise on these strengths and our
diverse views often lead to unproductive sessions. We have all been in meetings that fall into this category.
“Diversity though invaluable, is often divisive”.
How then do we fully incorporate this valuable yet potentially disruptive diversity, and use it in a positive and
productive manner?

2 – Strategic Problem Solving
As the world becomes more complex and change accelerates, we must strategically step back and make
greater sense of what is going on. We are then in a better position to make the best and context-appropriate
decisions to deal with our issues and opportunities.
How then do we start to make sense of a complex and shifting world so that we can then act with greater

3 – Creative Problem Solving
The application of creativity about is often at odds with business imperatives. However correctly applied
creativity is focused and addresses specific business needs aligned with organisational strategy.
How can we be more creative and generate new ideas and concepts to deal with the many issues and
opportunities that face us going forward?

In these sessions participants will listen to real-life case studies, practice and take away some practical tools
and methods to assist in 1) Constructive approaches to improving collaboration, 2) Looking at problems from
multiple perspectives so that the best possible interventions can be chosen & 3) Generating new, focused
ideas to help with those issues we struggle getting traction with.
