Leadership 6: Solving problems and seeing the big picture

Friday, November 17, 2023 10:00to12:00
 Solving problems and seeing the big picture

In this workshop, participants will be able to identify problems and use problem-solving techniques to find efficient solutions. Participants will look at ways in which problems arise, where they arise, and how problems can be identified. We will discuss an easily applicable problem-solving technique and finally touch upon some cultural nuances in order to avoid intercultural misunderstandings. Through these concepts, participants will learn to see the bigger picture to solve problems successfully.

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:​
• Identify the source of problems​
• Understand the importance of adapting problem-solving techniques to different contexts​
