Problem-solving and decision making go hand in hand. You cannot solve a problem without making a decision. However, when you have trouble making decisions, problem-solving can be especially tricky. There are typically two types of decision makers - those who take a rational, systematic approach to problem-solving and those who use intuition, or their emotions and gut instinct, in deciding what's right.
While we're often told to follow our gut when it comes to making important life decisions, it's helpful to approach the topic using both rational and intuitive approaches. Here we lay out a six-step approach for effective problem-solving.
ü Identify the problem
ü Search for alternatives
ü Weigh the alternatives
ü Make a choice
ü Implement the choice
ü Evaluate the results
