Are Your Employees Problem Solvers? Here’s Why It’s An Essential Skill

by Escaperoom R. Event Planner
Problems and challenges are inevitable in corporate settings. Since you don’t have control over these things, it is important that employees are equipped with problem solving or troubleshooting skills. According to a Forbes article, the goal of problem-solving is to minimize the occurrence of problems – which means that employees must be courageous enough to tackle them head-on before circumstances come into their hands.

            The best way to overcome problems is by embodying a mindset that approaches a problem through the lens of opportunity. This is important as it allows employees to explore other possibilities and acquire learnings to improve existing company practices, protocols, and standard operating procedures.

        Right now, there are many ways to improve problem-solving skills among employees. Games, team building activities, and other collaborative means not only allow employees to strengthen their bond and relationship but also sharpen their capacity to solve problems effectively. Corporate event companies can help you plan with your team building activities.

To further establish the importance of problem-solving skills, here are some ways to achieve it:

Solution-focused means

        You always hear the phrase “step back” or “think twice” when you are confronted with a problem. This is an important method to clear out the negativity inside the mind and allow the brain to think for potential solutions and sort out unnecessary thoughts. If you put your emotions over your ability to think, there’s a lesser likelihood that you’ll fix the problem as emotions drown your capacity to become rational and objective.

Keep an open mind

        Openness is important not only in problem-solving but also in other aspects such as communication, leadership, and conflict management. In problem-solving, openness gives you the capacity to consider all angles and possible solutions. Communication should also be open and transparent because it allows you to listen to all points of view of other people through meaningful dialogues.

        Speaking of communication, it is best to give platforms to practice openness with other employees. You can look for corporate event management companies that offer indoor and outdoor activities that will surely allow employees to talk, share their skills, and do problem-solving. Escape rooms are considered to be one of the best activities for corporate employees. You can check out Escape Room Races as one of the leading providers of competitive, fun-filled, and customized team building activities.


        Indeed, problem-solving is an essential skill. If this is emphasized in the corporate setting, it becomes easy to solve problems and come up with sustainable solutions.
