Problem Solving

Faced with a dilemma, we tend to ignore the problem, lower our expectations, attempt to please everyone, avoid taking ownership, blame others, and alternate between contradictory courses of action. This does not reduce our stress, it simply makes matters worse! Our own pattern of thinking prevents us from achieving success.

In this course, students are guided through a practical, step-by-step process to achieve breakthrough solutions in their personal and professional life.

Define the problem before trying to solve

We are all engrossed with problems all the time and the problem-solving course at Sunstone has given me a structure to approach these problems. Defining the problem before solving it, asking the right questions to find effective root causes is something that has not only helped me but I have been able to inculcate this in my team to be more effective problem solvers.

It is a very refreshing course

This course is designed in such a way that real time problems are dissected using a step-by-step guide and analyzed systematically. It is a very refreshing course because it gives a different dimension to the way we approach, define, structure and solve a problem. The concepts introduced in this course are easy to apply to all personal and professional problems.
