As an alternative to separating critical and creative thinking, some creative-problem-solving techniques focus on either reducing an idea's disadvantages or extracting a flawed idea's significant advantages and incorporating those advantages into a different idea.
Creative-problem-solving tools typically consist of software or manipulatable objects (such as cards) that facilitate specific creative-problem-solving techniques.
I was leading a team that just were very difficult.
Be aware of who is with you, where it is, what is happening. The best way I can describe this technique is using an example I once experienced.
Allow yourself to dream that anything is possible - no limits, no barriers, no restraints. But note down or tell a trusted person what you experienced and you will be able to make sense of what your right brain has just told you. It seems brighter and brighter as you get closer until you emerge in brilliant sunshine, on a gently moving stream in a beautiful, quiet meadow. - Is it a case of not seeing the wood for the trees?
You may not immediately understand what you have seen - as our intuition often speaks in symbolic terms. Consider the problem issue - and describe it to someone else using the best metaphor you can think of. He asked me then why don't I lead them with a bunch of carrots. Remember the key parts; remember as many details as you can; remember who is in the film; remember how it makes you feel. You get to stand up and move to the room in the middle. In this middle room, there is another film playing. While talking to someone who knew this technique, I described the team (I was really angry, I have to admit) as being like a bunch of donkeys I had to drag forward. I said because I couldn't push, I didn't have the strength.While logical, systematic answers are great, our brains are capable of so much more. When you enter the house there are 3 doors, one left, one in the middle and one on the right. But I was to recognize my own shortcomings in the situation and recognize the point when I didn't have the strength to lead the team.Our intuition is non-structured, non-judgmental and free-flowing and has apparently a multitude of the power of our logical thinking abilities. A 30 second conversation using a metaphor lead to 3 great key points and an overview. They never talk in clear language but more in a symbolic nature.Many of the techniques and tools for creating an effective solution to a problem are described in creativity techniques and problem solving.Creative-problem-solving techniques can be categorized as follows: A frequent approach to teaching creative problem solving is to teach critical thinking in addition to creative thinking, but the effectiveness of this approach is not proven.To qualify as creative problem solving the solution must either have value, clearly solve the stated problem, or be appreciated by someone for whom the situation improves.If a created solution becomes widely used, the solution becomes an innovation and the word innovation also refers to the process of creating that innovation.For so many years, instead of creative problem solving techniques, I relied solely on defined structures and set systems to come up with solutions. You are invited to sit down and watch a film on a huge screen in the room. The team needed me to show them the way and motivate them.However as I got older, I realized the pure power that my right brain had to offer. If they didn't like carrots I was to find some other way of motivating them.
