How to Break the Mold and Be an Independent Thinker | Alternative Dispute Resolution, Mediation, and Restorative Justice | Scoop.it
Three tips to help you think independently and come up with creative solutions.

Rob Duke's insight:

As mediators, we're hired not just to be the third side, nor to just facilitate the dispute in non-violent or other negatives ways; but, we're also there to help the disputants unlock their own potential to create joint solutions that empower parties (equalize power) and recognize the humanity in the other party's interests.  We should have giant toolboxes with many different types of tools.

(From the article): Take the bird's eye view. 


When you're trying to solve a problem, zoom out to see variables that others might overlook. "Thinking about the bigger picture takes you out of the familiar way of thinking about the problem," Markman says. Ask yourself, what is the purpose of solving this problem? What would happen if I succeed? And how can I find a solution that makes that outcome work?

For example, Thomas Edison saw that houses would need to be wired for electricity if people were going to buy lightbulbs. To send power over long distances, you need a high voltage bulb. Edison was the only inventor who realized this, so he was the one who made history.




Rob Duke's curator insight, August 14, 2013 2:50 PM

It's easy to say: "I don't make policy"; but, creativity can solve problems for people.  When I was a Chief, my unofficial mission statement was: you call, we come, problem solved.  This encouraged creativity and made it difficult to give the excuse that "I just follow orders."
