School Leadership Reimagined - The Problem IS the Solution

EPISODE 103

The Problem IS the Solution

Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want to Miss:
  • Bosses tend to make problems go away (or ignore it altogether). That doesn’t actually solve the problem and can actually make problems fester and metastasize.
  • Leaders look for solutions. The problem is, without really understand the problem, most solutions become temporary Band-Aids at best and utter wastes of time, energy, and resources at worst.
  • Builders find ways to turn problems into solutions. Doing so helps them really understand their problems and solve them once and for all.

There's a distinct difference between the way that bosses, leaders, and Builders look at their challenges. Bosses tend to avoid problems altogether. Leaders tend to look for solutions, often without really understanding the problem. But Builders know that in most cases, the solution lies within the problem itself.
