Problem Solving and People Solving: Learning to Lead
Faced with repeating, entrenched and complex personal and technically complex events,
managers must constantly wrestle with the on-the ground challenges that define their
working environment. Critical to the study of management, these challenges are most
often likely to emerge in highly resource-constrained contexts – there just isn’t
enough to go around – and managers have to dig deep to solve all of the problems that
emerge and reemerge, and that define professional success and failure. Where does
the juice to solve these problems come from? The only place that the power to be great
comes from – the only place it will ever or could ever come from – is from you, and
only you. The magic – the power – comes from you..
