Course details

What does it take to solve a problem? Sometimes technical skills and knowledge are enough to help you find solutions - but what do you do if you come across a problem you’ve never had to solve before? What happens if it’s a problem you’ve never even heard of?

This is where creative problem solving becomes your best friend. You might not think problem solving is its own skill, with a distinct set of techniques and benefits, but learning how to think laterally and creatively is one of the best assets you can bring to your workplace, no matter your role.

Technical skills can help you solve specific problems related to those skills - but problem solving skills empower you to think outside the box and find a range of solutions for a variety of issues. So in this course led by Ioannis Pantelidis, you’ll get started developing a varied creative toolkit to help you tackle all sorts of problems you might face.

  • A four-step process for identifying solutions
  • How creativity can help you recover from failure
  • The role of creativity in the hospitality industry
  • How to find, and use, creative inspiration
