Your nonconscious brain does most of the heavy lifting when it comes to problem solving.
It addresses the problem in front of you in ways that it’s dealt with similar problems in the past, so the solution that worked yesterday is the solution that your brain is going to bring you today. This can be helpful, but it can also get us in trouble.
In business today, our problems aren’t as simple as they used to be. In the past, most of the problems that businesses faced could be solved by bringing in an expert, consulting the manual or resolving to best practices. Now, our problems have become more complex, and the way in which we need to solve them is much more emergent.
The challenge we face today is this: do we have the right cognitive tools to be able to solve these complex problems in a new way?
At this Lunch & Learn, you’ll be introduced to Your Thinking Toolbox, a collection of strategies and tips we call “tools”, organized by a variety of thinking categories, that help you change your mindset and get unstuck. We’ll be focusing on the thinking category “Problem Solving,” where you’ll learn the brain science behind how our brains work, and how to use one of the tools we’ve developed that gives you a strategy to be able to look at problems in a fresh way, and use the kind of thinking that can create totally new solutions.
What’s on the menu? Chef Justin will be serving a fresh and delicious meal of Grilled Chicken, paired with a salad of Mixed Greens, Pomegranate, Almonds, Grapefruit, Goat Cheese Feta, and a house made Lemon-Basil Dressing. YUM!
