About Decision Making Training Sessions
A sharp mind is a powerful tool wherever it may find itself in, especially in a workplace environment where quick thinking, attention to detail, creative and maverick solutions, and deciding things on the fly are immensely valuable and have near-infinite application no matter what field they actually end up in. Part of the core strength of the workplace in its entirety is the fact that its composed of so many individuals with their own agency, lived experiences, and specialisations; not a lot of oversight is needed to manage them all and as long as a robust system is in place to properly utilise their combined effort, it will always result in a stable and reliable flow of work effort hence a steady flow of goods and/or services.
Having a sharp mind in the workplace isn’t easy though as the constant strain of work and labor and doing the same things on repeat over and over again tends to dull the mind. Things that the workplace needs such as standardisation and routine are the mortal enemy of a sharp and creative mind, and the spirit of competition while not in of itself not a bad thing can manifest itself in an unhealthy manner and cause undue strains for the workplace as well.
The strength of the human mind and the need for sharp and creative peers within the workplace is a challenge to all that operate under its huge and sometimes intimidating machinery. However, no matter how challenging it may be keeping a sharp mind and having good wits is most certainly a possibility even in the workplace so long as you know what you’re doing. Here at Paramount Training and Development we have a program specifically to help professionals from any walk of life keep their wits about them in the workplace through this Decision Making Training Course.
Part of the reason the workplace is constructed as it is – which is to say many different people, doing many different things, with some or very little oversight as to how they do things – is primarily because of individual agency and the fact that everyone has an idea and a solution and some of these are so maverick and so out there that despite some initial doubts, it can and does actually work. The workplace however is like a rough surface that can sand even the sharpest mind down to near dullness. There are ways to overcome this issue however, as Paramount Training and Development offers a Decision Making Training Course to keep workers’ wits about them and allow them to meet the demands of the common workplace.

Have sharper memory and be more retentive
One of the chief components adversely affected by the strains and stresses of work is memory. As most of the equations, processes, and relevant information present in a person’s mind are stored in a person’s memory, it can be easy to see how memory loss can adversely affect a person’s ability to perform their duty in home or at work. Thankfully however there have been great leaps and bounds done in the study of the human mind, and as such many methods and strategies have been developed by experts and researchers in the relevant fields of study to improve one’s memory. Such methods and strategies have been incorporated in our training module to assist participants in retaining and even expanding their capacity of retention.
Be more creative
Creativity is the lifeblood of the artist in their profession. Creativity allows for the capacity to think outside the box and create new and better solutions using oblique or otherwise obscure ideas and methods in order to solve old problems, and perhaps find new ways to solve these problems more efficiently or do so in such a manner where it begins to generate an byproduct that can only benefit its creator. This capacity for maverick thinking and creative problem-solving is nothing but a boon to the workplace, even if its initial appearance makes it seem too complicated or absurd to actually work. This module offers participants new methods and strategies which allow them to exploit their own inner creativity and allow them to apply their own unique ideas as they see fit to where it is both most appropriate as well as where it can be most beneficial in the context of home and work.
Become participants and critical thinkers
Our minds are at their most active and therefore at their peak performance when doing or performing new and unique tasks or when making valued judgments using relevant information on the fly. Teasing the brain with problems that have multiple facets that need to be individually analised in order to make a valued judgment later on allows many neurons to fire and stay active, thereby strengthening the brain. While introducing new experiences to the brain such as new tasks that it must perform in a sequence can induce a similar effect as solving a multilayered question but with the added benefit of creating new connections within the brain that may prove beneficial even outside the field or performance that they were originally created for. Participants will be exposed to such new experiences and be made to solve such problems, as well as be given programs tailor-made to ingrain the attitudes of exploration and experimentation into the participants which will allow them to maintain this beneficial pattern of behavior long after the end of their training.
Promote adaptation and dynamism in problem-solving
While some problems in the workplace are certainly recurring problems that one may end up facing, other problems and their subsequent solutions may not be as rigid. For example, one problem that most manufacturing businesses are faced with is where to find raw materials to make their goods from. Normally there would be a supplier that can constantly provide that solution, but what if that supplier goes out of business or is otherwise made unavailable? In the Decision Making Training Course, participants are encouraged to find simple solutions for some problems (in this case, finding a new supplier), and create maverick ones for others (find suitable substitute materials); this promotes an attitude of dynamism and adaptation which will be key in finding solutions in the long-term.
