Investigate Problems

Empowering team members to investigate problems and define issues changes the traditional leader-team dynamic. By taking an active role in finding solutions, team members can apply abilities in critical thinking, synthesising and validation, so that decision-making becomes a shared effort. This collaborative approach is not only better for finding solutions, it also boosts team morale and cohesion.

What teams will explore

  • Speaking up when there’s a problem
  • Engaging in collaborative problem solving efforts
  • Applying critical thinking to ask ‘why’ and ‘how’
  • Understanding the role of data, fact and logic
  • Using a framework to define a problem

What teams will apply

  • A framework to define problems
  • Ability to share and talk about problems with others
  • Questioning techniques that promote critical thinking
  • Skills in sourcing relevant data and facts
  • Ability to define options for solving the problem

    Our in-person workshops maximise opportunities for robust conversation, experiential activities and intensive group work. This is no ‘death by PowerPoint’ experience – our facilitators are skilled in presenting and leading immersive experiences that get the most out of people. Supported by multimedia, attractive takeaway pages and practical strategies for using back on the job – our in-person workshops build a formidable bridge between exploration and application. We have a 10 person minimum for an in person workshop.

    Our virtual workshops breathe fresh life into the online experience with their almost ‘radio show’ feel. Our expert facilitators use a combination of multimedia, questioning techniques and break out activities to target micro-skills – with a focus on application. Supported by an online platform hosting custom-built workshop materials, participants can be assured of a lively, dynamic session that has a distinct bias to action. We have a 6 person minimum for a virtual workshop.
    This audience includes team members who are developing skills to perform their role with greater capability. The skills are geared toward increasing personal and professional effectiveness and are transferable across different contexts – making them last as they move through their career development journey.
    Thinka believes that every learner needs to walk away being able to do something differently once they’ve engaged in a learning solution. The real power is in every individual applying their learning. Our behaviour-based methods, supported by the latest research, are key to making the steps for change relevant and realistic.

    Thinka supports with methods like storytelling, experiential activities or rich questioning, but ultimately, we know the integration between solution and real world is the most crucial part of the learning experience. That is why we look for ways to ‘build a bridge’ between the solution we provide and what happens back out on the job.

    Whether it’s an application template, a set of strategies, some tips or a ‘how to’ model – we work hard to provide every learner with not just information but the tools they need to make a real difference.
