Albert Einstein said, “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” In leadership you deal with problems all the time. But effective leadership is found in the proper way you go about solving them. If you try to solve problems with the thinking that created them you are not going to succeed. Problem solving is an essential leadership skill and it requires a smarter level of reasoning. As you encounter the problems and challenges try and do so with a new way of thinking, seeing and sensing. It’s only as you break away from the thinking that got you into your mess that you will begin to work your way out of it. Think different. Think new.
