 Everyone has problems in life and many times they linger for a variety of reasons. The problem may be too painful to deal with or seem too big or complicated. In some cases, the problem exists within us.

One of the tasks I have in working with clients is to identify the problem in their organization. There is a difference in “perception” and the real problem. It helps to use the “Three Bucket List.”

Bucket #1 – Is the problem people?

Bucket #2 – Is the problem processes?

Bucket #3 – Is the problem platform (facility or product, location, website, marketing)?

This procedure is critical because I have seen managers find good people, but there were problems because they had poor processes. By deciding which bucket the problem belongs, half the battle is won.

If the problem is people, what can you do?

  1. Admit it. Denial can be dangerous.

  2. Ask for help. Wise counselors are important.

  3. Action will be necessary. Don’t expect different results until you take the appropriate action.
