Creative Problem Solving and Action Learning

The aim of this module is to facilitate participants to reflect on the concepts of critical thinking, emotional intelligence and action learning, which when used interchangeably can be of significant benefit to them as a leader/manager, their staff team, organisation and service users.

On completion of this module participants will be able to:

 Discuss the role of the manager in relation to problem solving.
 Identify models for problem solving and creative thinking.
 Give examples of how thinking strategies can be applied to human services.
 Explain the factors involved in generating high quality information for decision making.
 Describe how action learning could be used as a tool to promote learning and improve performance.
 Reflect on their ability to problem solve and action areas for development.

The module has the overall objective of facilitating participants to reflect on the process of problem solving and its relevance to their circumstances so that they can further equip themselves with key skills that can be applied within any setting of the labour market.
