Intentionality: Tying together activities to address tough issues
113 Tackling Nagging Problems with Purpose, Outcomes and Intentionality
We all have those nagging problems that lurk in the background, the ones you know you should tackle but never seem to have time. In reality, they are often the ones we really don’t want to undertake, or worse, we’ve made them “unsolvable”, working around rather than tackling them. This class provides a much needed break to really examine these issues. Participants take a step back to identify the roots of the issues, re-frame them as necessary, and then identify alternative strategies to reduce roadblocks, sequence steps, identify stakeholders and develop flexibility in addressing tough issues. The class is about creating a mind-set for tackling problems and knowing whether you’re making progress or not. Be prepared to be challenged, and encouraged to think in new ways.
