Problem-Solving and Decision-Making

Learn how to become a decision-maker and problem-solver by overcoming barriers and using the problem-solving model.

Most good decision-makers learned their craft the hard way ... by making mistakes. The problem now is that the stakes are so much higher. Turnover of critical positions, employee lawsuits and frustrated, burnt out managers have an immediate effect on the bottom line. Learn best practice problem-solving from the research of scholars and the experiences of executives at all levels. This material will provide practical steps to better workplace decision-making. Discover rules to accelerate positive outcomes and break down the barriers that block successful problem-solving. The topic also provides an analysis of one of today's most difficult management decisions ... termination. How many times have executives struggled with this decision and process only to have co-workers come back with, "what took you so long?" This is a leadership issue. Embracing problems as challenges and timely decision-making are both important components in a great leader's workplace toolbox. This topic is critical for employers who want to create and maintain a culture as a destination company for "A" players.
