About the course

Oftentimes, we have problems at work, in our family, and in other areas of our lives. The quality of our solutions and decisions bring either positive or negative outcomes. Life’s complexities require us to be more competent problem-solvers and decision-makers. As Albert Einstein puts it: “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”

We need to go beyond our default thinking, and imbibe the skills, habits and principles of Breakthrough Thinking.
