As a leader, problem-solving is a critical skill that you use every day. But have you ever found that the stress and anxiety that comes along with trying to solve a problem can actually make it all worse? If so, you're not alone.
Those who can't let go of their dependence on concrete, countable information often find it difficult to see solutions that don't fit into what they already know. This kind of singular focus not only wastes energy, but it also stifles innovation, creates frustration, and ultimately leads to poor performance and health outcomes. This is a serious problem, not just for individuals, but for entire teams and organisations.
So, as a leader, remember to take a step back and trust in your exceptional mind to work on the problem, even when you're not consciously thinking about it. This can lead to better solutions, improved innovation, and ultimately better performance and health outcomes for yourself, your team, and your organisation.
