In this rapidly changing world we are constantly faced with challenges both at work and in our private lives. What can we do to ensure that we make the most effective decisions possible?
In this highly interactive session Mike and Jon will share the challenges they have faced, discuss different approaches and models they have used, and explain how these helped them to choose the right decision for them.
The event will start with refreshments from 6.00-6.30. It will then be delivered in an interactive way using a combination of: direct input, small group discussions and a chance to try out various models in small groups. The second part of the evening will provide people with an opportunity to discuss a challenge that they are currently facing and to receive ideas from other attendees on how to tackle it.
Delegates should bring with them a current “real” problem which they would like assistance with.
Facilitators: Mike Sinnett and Jon Colman
