Start with a problem you’d like to solve or a future result you’d like to achieve.
What outcome would make a meaningful difference for you?
As an example, let’s say that you’d like to see your team members become more proactive in identifying and solving problems.
Articulate why it’s important to you now.
Seek quality information to base your approach on.
You don’t know the best ways to encourage proactive problem solving, so you check in with your coach or mentor or search for some relevant books and articles.
Identify measures of success.
Ground yourself with an intention.
From the reading you’ve done and discussions with your coach, you design the following practices:
Tell your team members that you’re working to support their proactive problem solving and that you need their feedback to help you get better at this.
Ask them to let you know whenever you do something that either hurts or helps.
Within a few weeks, you’ll be able to tell that you’ve made progress if team members are engaging more actively in problem solving on a regular basis.
You’ll have a newfound appreciation for the creativity of some employees.
