(An individual walks into an always open office door.)
A problem without a solution is still a problem. The most troubling aspect of being presented a problem without a solution is you have now introduced another problem to me. YOUR PROBLEM!
So my advice to you is obvious. (At least I thought it was.) Use the oldest, most cliché rule before you go to present anyone a problem…BRING POTENTIAL SOLUTIONS with you. It is much more refreshing than the alternative…which by the way is normally just bitching and moaning.
(An individual exits as I want to close my always open office door. As usual, I won’t. I guess that’s MY PROBLEM)
Amen to that Phil… I hate it when someone comes to me with a problem and then looks blankly at me when I ask what do they think should happen…….
Funny how they are the people you meet years later still in the same position whilst others have moved pasted them….
We luckily have a great team over at CBS…don’t have too many blank stare days. Thank goodness…but there is always someone that forces you to write.
Keep up the good fight
Now I feel bad….. I use to always do that to you
Naaaa…I liked our office time. We would actually brainstorm fun ideas and always came up with something unique and exciting. Not even close Mike!
