‘How to be more solution-focused in my world of work’
- by Dieter Weinand: http://futureoflearning.com.au/speakers/dieter-weinand/
This is the second Blog Post in the series of the Future of Learning 2015 Conference of The Institute of Learning Professionals. As part of the Expert tables we choose a few interesting topics.
Below are my key takeaways:
- Role play of questions about the problem and questions about a potential solution
- NLP practices included, analyse a person’s behaviour
- Problem questions: interviewees seem more stressed/uncomfortable and look away more
- Solution questions: Interviewees relax more, smile and laugh more when they answer
- Conclusion: Do not stick to the problem as you have the solution and you need to work towards that even when it is just in little steps.
- Often companies get stuck on these problems as it is ‘The way they have always done things’.
“Find out what works and do more of it”
