Mike did a great job. The team enjoyed themselves and took some useful tips & tricks on board.
"I thoroughly enjoyed the creative problem solving course. The trainer was very knowledgeable regarding the topic. A mixture of activities were undertaken including a group activity at the beginning, partner discussions, a Powerpoint presentation and discussion of the various topics from the work book. It was good that the trainer requested information about the goals of the participants at the beginning of the course and followed up several times during the course to make sure that the learning goals of the participants were being met."
Individual Course Participant
"Michael was an excellent trainer/facilitator. I have already commented to colleagues about him and the course, which I found most valuable. Everyone from those starting in a job for the first time, to experienced senior managers/CEOs would benefit from this course I feel. Highly recommend."
"Lynne did a great job in taking our class. Used really easy language and also related herself easily to our examples of problem solving."
"It was a great course. the training was practicable based with example, very interactive and engaging. Everyone was participating. The training was well paced and interesting."

In the past few decades, psychologists and business people alike have discovered that successful problem solvers tend to use the same type of process to identify and implement the solutions to their problems. This process works for any kind of problem, large or small, in any organisation in New Zealand.
This Creative Problem Solving workshop will give participants an overview of the entire creative problem solving process, as well as key problem solving tools that they can use every day. Creativity can be learned and fostered as a professional skill, and can provide individual inspiration as well as being a useful team building tool.

When you want a tailored learning experience targeting exactly what you want without bringing everyone physically together, the best choice is a Live Online Class run by PDT.
We tailor the content and activities to be specific to your current needs and the needs of the people and run the course in our usual activity-based workshop style training, however, the participants can all be offsite, or some can be in the room with others offsite.
Unless you have a preferred tools we use 'Zoom for Education' that includes enhanced collaboration features such as One-click content sharing, real-time co-annotation (people can work together in activity files), and digital whiteboarding, we also include things like live polls and group chats so you virtually have the same collaborative learning experience of attending a course in a room with other people.
We have delivered these 100's (if not 1000's) of times, and get great outcomes. We achieve great outcomes because we keep our learner centric approach - just because it’s delivered through a screen to some or all participants doesn’t mean it needs to be less tailored or less personalised.
You still have an expert trainer who talks to you prior to the session and tailors the delivery to use your terminology, ensure activities are relevant and directly applicable and ensures an engaging learning experience that provide people with skills and techniques they can apply the very next day.
A hybrid class is with some people connecting online, and some people physically together in the same room.
We provide the Training Management Centre which is an information hub before, during and after training.
