Full-day | On-site Course:

Critical Thinking in a Complex Business Environment : This session uses real life and case study examples to emphasize the importance of critical thinking and strategic leadership.  We will examine the reasons that humans are not hard-wired to do critical thinking, or strategy.  We will then explore what needs to be done to make it part of a high-performing leadership portfolio. All managers will participate in a three-round game theory exercise designed to teach scenario analysis, interdependencies and strategic course correction.  The room will be divided into 5 teams who will compete throughout the day to ultimately crown a winning business strategy.  The goal…get the money NOW!  We will then apply these principals to your leadership challenges in small working groups.
