Thomas Wedell-Wedellsborg explains how to solve the right problems by mastering the art of reframing.
Have you or your colleagues ever worked hard on something only to find you were focusing on the wrong problem entirely? Most people have. Research shows that 85% companies say they often struggle to solve the right problems. The consequences are severe: leaders fight the wrong strategic battles; teams spend their energy on low-impact work; and start-ups build products and services that nobody wants. As Peter Drucker pointed out: there’s nothing more dangerous than the right answer to the wrong question.
But there is a better way. In this Thinkers50 Big Idea webinar, Danish-born author and thought-leader Thomas Wedell-Wedellsborg explains how reframing is the crucial, underutilized skill you can master to transform your organization, career, and life. In this session you will learn a truly powerful three-step method to help you overcome your toughest challenges.
