3 hours - 1 day in your offices or local venue.

Tailored, in-company Workshops to address specific Business Thinking Challenges

"What type of Thinking Process is required here?"

Break down any Thinking Challenge into simpler thinking steps, then think in the right ways at each stage to ensure successful results and avoid the risk of mistakes.

For example:

  • devise a strategy or plan
  • plan a new project
  • solve a problem, or performance issue
  • make a crucial decision
  • create, evaluate, and plan new ideas or innovations
  • look for improvements: eg to products, services, processes, operations, sales, profits, performance, marketing, selling, teamwork, culture … to cut costs, improve sales, boost efficiency and productivity
  • plan a change or resolve change implementation problems
  • set and plan objectives
  • plan how to deal with difficult conversations, eg resolving poor staff performance
  • design an advertising or sales campaign, website, brochure, exhibition stand
  • make sense of any complex situation, task, or communication
  • work out how training courses can be evaluated for effectiveness.
 

Thinking Traps Audits and Training Workshops

Thinking Traps Audits across your organisation or units 

Diagnostic research/surveys across your organisation to identify the existence of unconscious Thinking Traps (such as various types of bias, fallacy, prejudice, group effects) and devise remedies for their eradication.

Thinking Traps can occur at individual, team/group, or organisational level. In a major EU organisation, one type of bias was discovered (by audit) to be seriously impairing performance and productivity across the whole business. One type of fallacy is common in many large organisations and can lead to £millions being wasted.

Once Traps like these are identified, it is relatively simple to create effective solutions.

Workshops in Avoiding Thinking Traps

Aimed at intact teams or project groups. 3-hour to 1-day training workshops in being aware of the dozens of unconscious Thinking Traps that can deflect rational thinking.

We explain the various types of Thinking Traps, how they can occur undetected, and the group examines how they can be identified and remedied to improve performance.
