Course Description

PPA - Problem Solving with a Growth Mindset

This high energy, half-day workshop is a powerful combination of tools that people learn to use to establish a curious, innovative growth mindset and workplace tools to implement on-the-job.

People learn how to establish a positive outcome orientation, keep things in perspective and then implement new techniques in a collaborative work environment that is experiencing change.

Much more than just concepts, this is a course that provides people with practical tools to use in all aspects of their life. Like the other PPA courses, this course is different from a lot of courses in the same genre in that it is suitable for people of all ages, and all levels of seniority in organisations.

The 'no-fluff' approach that is focussed on practical application through activity-based learning throughout the session ensures that people are engaged, keeps it 'real' and has people walking away with tools and skills that are as powerful as they are simple to implement.

We use secure Video Conferencing with interactive features such as live polling, screen sharing, whiteboards, live chat and breakout sessions. Please discuss your preferred platform, most commonly we use Microsoft Teams, Skype for Business, Webex or Zoom upon request. 

These courses are facilitated in English, and are open to people from different industries in all countries especially across New Zealand, Australia,  Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong - this is a short but powerful learning experience that gives you global collaboration opportunities. Our trainers and processes have been refined to give you a personalised learning experience where it is specifically targeted to your needs.
