The Problem Solving Model

Problem Solving Styles – You solve problems every day. Often, you are “under the gun”, stressed and very short for time. Therefore, when you run into a new issue or decision you have to make, you may react with a conclusion that appeared to have been successful before. It is not difficult with this specific tactic to get stuck in a circle of solving the same problem over and over again. In this session we will exhibit various problem solving styles which can be more productive in the workplace.
