CA Career Briefs: Reframe a Problem

CA Career Briefs

Did you know?

According to Forbes 2013 job skills list, 9 out of the 10 most in-demand jobs required complex problem solving skills. Employers want to hire employees who have the skills, tools and experience to find unique solutions to the problems they face. Learning to reframe problems is one strategy that will encourage students to look at a problem from different perspectives and to use their imagination to unlock an array of novel solutions. While reframing problems takes effort, attention and practice, it will enable students to see the world around them in a new light as they work to find innovative solutions in the workplace and in their personal lives.

Do this…

  • Ask your students questions about how they go about solving problems.
  • View video.
  • Distribute Student Activity, review directions and complete.
  • View this additional video if you want more on Tesco fresh approach.

Get Real!

For additional problem solving strategies, suggest students stop by the CACareerCafe.Com and try the online lesson- Solve Problems.

...you can practice reframing by seeing the world from others’ perspectives and by asking questions that begin with Why?
