Being a leader can be lonely. Whether you’re a “C” level administrator, Division Leader, General Manager or a Solo-preneur, you’re expected to be a thinker. Your day-to-day work places you in situations where solutions aren’t “in the manual.” No, you must generate ideas and solve complex issues from original thought. How do you do that? If you’ve been struggling to describe how you think and you can’t seem to find a method that works, you are NOT alone. In fact, being alone is a problem you need to fix, TODAY!
If you’re ready to learn more about thinking, register for the THINK’ID8 CO.LAB Design Thinking Training @ The Central PA Chamber of Commerce. (Learn More)
If you’re feeling alone in your thinking, it’s time to gather your team and get thinking. If you oversee staff, pull your team together from within your organization. If you’re a Solo-preneur, seek out your trusted friends and advisors. BUT, before you step into that thinking session, you need a plan. Your team is counting on you for several things:
- They need you to have a clear understanding of the problem you are asking them to help you solve.
- They need to know you are not going to waste their time.
- They need to know HOW you plan to organize the group’s input.
- They need to feel secure sharing ideas.
- They need to know you will leave the session with an action plan and that the ideas will not disappear.
- They need to feel engaged in the entire process.
If you’ve read this far, you most likely don’t have an answer to the question, “How do you think?” and could use some help prepping for your next team think session.
The THINK’ID8 CO.LAB is designed to teach you the essentials of thinking and provide a structure for think sessions known as Design Thinking. You may have heard about Design Thinking. The process has been around for over 30+ years and has helped many great organizations achieve their goals. After completing this full-day training, you’ll feel more confident in your abilities to lead a team in the efforts to solve your complex organizational problems and build solutions to new opportunities.
