LEARN ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
WHAT WILL THIS WORKSHOP COVER?
We’ve adopted a definition of strategy as a coherent reaction designed to surmount a high-stakes challenge facing the company.
While solving strategic problems the leader will utilize the Strategic Problem Solving Model, which will be introduced and practiced during the workshop.
We will be delving into what happens in the mind of a person making a difficult decision. It would be great if in such situations our minds were not clouded and our thoughts lined up clearly. Unfortunately the reality is different. Our thoughts are influenced by emotions and various cognitive limitations.
This often results in making rash, not always optimal decisions. This is why overcoming one’s myopia and cognitive limitations is any leader’s key challenge.
During this workshop participants will learn the key tools that will guide their thoughts and facilitate controlling them.
LECTURE AND COMMENTARY
The theoretical basis for our workshop is the Strategic Problem Solving Model. It organizes how to view and manage difficult problems. However, in order to fully be able to utilize this model it is important to learn and consciously develop the Strategic Competencies.
The Strategic Problem Solving Model
In the course of the workshop participants will study the Strategic Problem Solving Model. It consists of three stages. Challenge Diagnosis, Solution Design, Cohesive Action.
The Model falsifies the most widespread and erroneous approach which concentrates on solving problems through direct action without clearly defining the challenge ahead.
It is very important to learn ones strengths and weaknesses in the process of solving complex strategic problems. This is the reason why each manager should work to develop their strategic competencies if they want to think and act like a strategist. This workshop is based on six key Strategic Competencies developed by our company:
- Interpretation of the situation
- Questioning the status quo
- Building cooperation
- Creating leverage
- Anticipating the future
