Thinking Tactics helps managers, business owners, and other professionals to get more mileage out of their thinking time.
Professionals are paid to think--to figure out what the company or the client should do. Whether they are managers or engineers, lawyers or marketing specialists, they solve problems for the business, make business decisions, and dig up facts the business needs. They are the brains of a company. When their thinking gets stuck or slowed down, the business gets stuck or slowed down.
When an organization bogs down, management can assign a Six Sigma team to analyze what's happening and reorganize the work. But when a thinking process bogs down, only the thinker can analyze the mental obstacles he faces. No one else has access to those mental processes.
In Thinking Tactics, thinkers learn to become their own mental efficiency experts. They learn to identify mental obstacles and to surmount them with confidence.
In the morning session, Concentrating the Power of Your Mind, you will learn:
** How to use small chunks of time for big thinking tasks
** How to break through the two most common thinking blocks in three quick steps
** How to spot when you're floundering, then get your work back on track fast
In the afternoon session, Getting the Thinking Job Done, you will learn:

** The secret to making large, amorphous projects fit in limited schedules
** The #1 thinking tactic that helps perfectionists turn in good work on time

Most people solve thinking problems in an ad hoc manner. In Thinking Tactics, they learn a flexible system of practical techniques--a system that ensures their thinking gives the best possible results in the available time.
