Change is essential for growth, and organisations must grow in order to sustain their competitive advantage. While it is essential, change is not easily embraced by many people.

PEOPLE MANAGEMENT   PROBLEM SOLVING & DECISION MAKING
It is commonly acknowledged that it is the people who work in any organisation that are its most important assets. It is therefore crucial that the people, the most vital of any organisations resources, are managed properly at all levels and within all functions. This two day workshop equips managers at all levels with the tools and skills to become better and more effective ‘people’ managers benefiting not only themselves and those who report to them, but also the wider organisation as well.

  Why is it that some people find it easy to solve tough problems with simple solutions while others find this feat nearly impossible? You’ve no doubt looked at solutions to problems and said, “I should have thought of that.” But you didn’t. The answer is not just creativity, although that certainly helps. Rather, the power to find these creative solutions lies in our ability to search for and find facts that relate to the situation and put them together in ways that work. For an individual, facts and knowledge can only go so far. By tapping into the knowledge of others (staff, colleagues, family, or friends), anyone can expand the range of available solutions.
