Consent-Building Clinic #72: Recorded September 2015
It’s obvious what you should do!
We know exactly what the project you’re working needs . . .
We’ve been guilty of jumping to solutions — and your public is guilty too — because it is composed of people just like us!
But how do get them not to rush to a solution?
Yelling “S L O W DOwwwwwnnn!” rarely works.
Yet, you need some kind of speed bump to keep people from such rash thinking.
Before we get into HOW to Prevent Your Public from Jumping (to Solutions), we have to ensure you “get” WHY this matters.
- Have you ever been to a doctor that tries to push a certain treatment or medicine on you, before even really assessing what’s wrong?
- Maybe it was your car mechanic, that was so sure you needed that new transmission to stop that awful sound?
- Perhaps it was you and your spouse determining a better parenting approach to address your child’s troublesome behavior?
Whatever the problem, it’s human nature to want to FIX what’s broken, rather than stew in the discomfort of the problem itself.
But that’s your first mistake.
If you, your team, or even your public fail to fully understand the problem.
Not only will your team will be blamed when the solution the public jumped to fails, but for the time, energy, and resources wasted in the process.
You’re Headed for Trouble. . .
Crazy but true — they’ll blame YOU — for not stopping them from jumping!
Ironically, the ONLY solution you should jump to is to listen to this presentation.
In this recording, we discuss in detail the problem of jumping to solutions, and how your team can handle and prevent it.
