8 Ways To Turn Problems Into Positivity
Problems come and go but our perspective on them should remain the same. Make a shift of perspective on problems and radically change your day to day leadership.
When leaders approach problems with a positive perspective, teams can see through the immediate pain and push through the problem solving process with confidence and courage. I love John Maxwell’s acronym for seeing problems with a positive perspective:
P – predictors: helping to mold our future
R – reminders: showing us that we cannot succeed alone
O – opportunities: pulling us out of ruts, prompting creative thinking
B – blessings: opening doors we would otherwise not go through
L – lessons: providing instruction with each new challenge
E – everywhere: telling us that no one is excluded from difficulties
M – messages: warning us about potential disaster
S – solvable: reminding us that every problem has a solution
When the pain of a problem arises on your team, take your mind and heart to a proper perspective. Problems can be positives not negatives, blessings not curses. Your team is depending on the right perspective.
