Who should attend

The course in Essential Analytical Skills is for emerging leaders or those new to management who are:

  • Junior to mid-level managers
  • Recently promoted to a supervisory role
  • Aspiring supervisors or those preparing to take on a supervisory role for the first time
  • Supervisors with a basic knowledge of management and leadership principles wanting to brush up their critical thinking, analytical and project management skills

About the course

What sets a successful supervisor apart, taking them from being a “manager” to acting as a “leader”? It’s in the way that they think and leverage information to solve problems. A leadership mindset calls for critical thinking, human reasoning and applied analytical thought processes to synthesize data and make informed decisions. To be that successful supervisor is to change the way you think.

That’s exactly what Essential Analytical Skills helps you to do. This course grounds you in the principles of critical thinking and human reasoning for informed problem solving and decision making. The course provides you with the strategies and techniques of critical thinking, how to best utilize thinking and reasoning in the operational environment, methods for leveraging data analytics and turning that data information into the action of effective problem solving.

What You’ll Learn

Problem Solving

  • Understand the nature of problems in the workplace — what they mean, why they occur and what’s at stake if they’re left unsolved
  • Master the 6-step MindLeap Problem-Solving Model to overcome your cognitive blind spots and create tangible solutions to the real issues you face every day
  • Utilize tools and techniques like Fishbone Diagrams and Is/Is-Not Analysis to help pinpoint the most economical solutions to complex problems

Critical Thinking

  • Recognize and manage your own cognitive biases and protect against biases within your team and workplace as a whole
  • Grasp the fundamental nature of cause-and-effect and how it’s the secret blueprint to solving the most confounding issues
  • Avoid cognitive pitfalls by understanding the dangers of assumptions and heuristics, and how they can negatively impact your ability to think critically

Data Analytics

  • Apply analytical thinking to improve decision making, team performance and your problem solving skills
  • Use basic analytics and the MindLeap Problem-Solving Model to investigate complex business problems inspired by real-life case studies
  • Craft analytics-driven solutions to issues in the retail, distribution, and manufacturing sectors
