Training Overview

Making decisions can be very challenging. However, we are all required to make them daily. Moreover, the decisions we make invariably have an impact on others and the outcomes of activities that follow.

This becomes even more challenging when decisions have to be made as part of a group where individual differences may have to be set aside and collective or long-term impacts taken into consideartion. Equipping individuals with the correct tools to engage in momentary or thought-driven decision-making is consequently vital. 

This training course is designed to help participants apply a range of critical thinking and related techniques to make meaningful timely decision.
