Rapid Problem Solving

How fast do you solve problems? 

Effective leaders solve many problems even before people realize that they are problems. 

Because centered, high performance leaders are always looking for ways to improve their processes, revolutionize their designs, and develop their people, they are constantly exposed to hints of resistance. Big problems often give out signals of dysfunction long before anyone notices them. 

As a leader, how will you see these signals soon enough to optimize your impact?

What problems are lurking just below the surface of your most important process?

Who on your team needs additional resources to get the job done?

What skills need additional attention and training to optimize your team's performance?

What will you do today to diagnose a hidden problem?

Use These Four Strengths

What do you think it all comes down to?

When it comes to leadership, and problem solving, I believe that we have the ability to develop four core strengths (five, if you count centering and balancing all four). Developing those strengths helps us accomplish our goals, solve problems, lead and live more effectively.

Create more balance. Create more focus. Identify ways to develop these five core strengths.

How many problems could stand up to you using all of your clarity, courage, creativity, and compassion?

Create Agreements First

The more we disagree on a problem the more our behaviors begin to resemble each other's. Why not take this as an invitation to start creating agreements?

We Are More Than Ready

Our problems are no match for our strengths.
