What makes you more employable in 2010 #9 Problem Solving

Today we are discussing trait #9 Problem Solving, to make you more employable in 2010.

Problem solving is a skill that enables you to tackle issues in a rational and systematic way. It is a strategic-thinking process that involves attention to detail, setting goals, evaluating alternatives and finding suitable courses of action to resolve issues.
Improving individual’s and group’s abilities to “solve problems” and make decisions is recognised as an important skill in every profession and indeed all fields of life.

As a professional, you might want to handle your team more effectively, get promotions, buy a home or improve your communication skills. It is almost certain that, while working towards your goals, you will come across some barriers. At that point, you can engage in any number of problem solving processes to help you achieve your goal. Every time you use a problem solving process you are increasing your problem solving skills.

We at SMStheJob believe that problem solving skills can be improved by practicing simple exercises.

Problem solving is a task oriented process that needs collaboration and positive attitude. Doug Staneart in this article has meticulously explained how we can get creative solutions for our problems.

When you face a problem, how you react is an important skill and that is one of the criteria employers use to consider who to hire. It is considered that management roles are a process of solving problems. If there were no problems then there would be no need for management. If you want to reach a managerial position you should have expertise in making decisions and solving problems.

Time for some home work:

Read “Demonstrate your problem solving skills in the Interview” by Frank Traditi co-author of Get Hired NOW! Then grab a friend or family member and practise these skills (if you are too embarrassed to ask for help, practise in the mirror until you have your confidence to try with another person!).
