Why You Shouldn't Always Suggest a Solution

Why You Shouldn't Always Suggest a Solution | Serious Play | Scoop.it

It's a natural reaction. Everyone does it. You hear a problem and you immediately want to prescribe a solution--the perfect antidote--a master plan that will solve everything. But all too often, you give into the temptation to define a solution well before the full problem is articulated and explored. You're not the only one. Leaders at all levels are guilty of doing this. They hear a problem--the outlines of danger--and they rush to offer their agenda. In their desire to be helpful, they end up setting others on a path that may be costly--not only in resources but also in time. There are a number of reasons why presenting a solution right away has downsides.

6 reasons why presenting a solution right away has downsides and 6 tips to fight that instinct.
