Systematic Problem Solving

SKU: 4124EF

Regardless of your industry or organization, the challenge of making tough decisions and solving problems is ever-present. You can help teams make more impactful contributions to the process by arming them with a problem-solving model that uses type preferences as a framework for ensuring a thorough process. This activity requires small, dominant-alike groups to work on either a real-life issue that the team needs to address or a case study example (provided as part of the activity resources). Each group will apply the problem-solving model to consider the issue from various perspectives and to gain insight into how type dynamics impact problem-solving styles. Participants will gain an understanding of what key questions to consider during the problem-solving process to facilitate more comprehensive decisions.

Objective: To demonstrate how the systematic, sequential use of the Sensing, Intuition, Thinking, and Feeling functions contributes to group problem solving.

Time Frame: 60 minutes
