Problem Solving

Better Questions → Better Answers

Open ended & Disarming
“Why” asks for reasons but often gets interpreted as “justify yourself”
“How” address process
“When and Who” are specific fact finding
Neutral without judgment. Curiosity > Judgment.
Beginner’s Mind.
Teams will give you their best if you don’t think you’re ideas or approach is already the best.
Can’t fill a cup that is already full.

Turn Anxiety → Asks + Actions

Anxiety is a smoke alarm set to highest sensitivity because we are disconnected from which room has the fire.
Asking ourselves and others without judgment to find the real issues.
Momentum is powerful. Freeze is not same as Pause & Reflection.

Problems are Puzzles

Problems are puzzles whose solutions must include people, processes, and perceptions.
