Is today’s critical thinking gap impacting your profits and aggravating your heartburn? According to a recent study by the Council for Aid to Education, 40% of graduating college seniors lack the complex reasoning skills to manage white-collar work. According to a Wall Street Journal survey, at least one third of college seniors are unable to assess the quality of evidence in a document, make a cohesive argument, or interpret data in a table. Chances are, you and your colleagues are confronting these challenges daily. “Where have we gone wrong?” you might ask. But the better question is “What do we do in our workplace to fix this issue?” This session provides the solution.
DecisioNinjas: Building Tomorrow’s Generation of Workplace Problem Solvers is designed to teach you how to turn those you supervise into contributors who think fast, act decisively and inspire others to do the same. Based on interviews with more than 2700 leaders, managers and business owners, this session reveals the eight attributes top-notch decision-makers share in every workplace. Then we explore how these individuals compel those around them to embrace these attributes in their daily problem solving.
With a new generation of distracted, impatient, and technology-dependent professionals entering the workplace, now is the time to drive day-to-day decision improvement in measurable ways. Join us for this engaging and practical session and walk away with the tools you need to compel those around you to become DecisioNinjas.
