Leadership IDS Issues Solving Issues

eye of hurricaneI often remind my clients that an issue is just that… an issue. 

In other words, there is nothing they can’t solve. It’s simply that some issues are bigger and more emotionally charged than others.

People issues usually top the list as the toughest to take on. Many leaders delay addressing these problems because they fear they will be painful and result in unpleasant outcomes. Good problem solving is like reaching the eye of a hurricane.

Enter The Danger

Most of us would not willingly hop aboard a hurricane bound flight. That sounds crazy!

Working through your big issues is like taking a flight through the hurricane. It can feel dangerous, you may encounter strong turbulence, and the outcome could be catastrophic.

But the truth is hurricane flights are quite safe. What begins as very turbulent quickly shifts to beauty and tranquility as the airplane reaches the eye of the storm. Most of the turbulence is in the eye-wall, which must first be penetrated before reaching the eye.

Experience The Tranquility After The Turbulence

Good issue solving starts with the willingness to fly through the eye-wall with confidence that you will reach the eye. The EOS Issues Solving Track™ (IDS™) will get you there:

  • Identify
  • Discuss
  • Solve

Ninety percent of the battle is the willingness to take on the storm. This is true whether confronting hurricanes or getting through your most difficult issues.

Trust the process and experience the exhilaration of getting to the other side filled with beauty, tranquility, and clarity!
