How do you know the difference between a symptom and a problem? It can be difficult, if not impossible, to tell the difference. Sometimes problems present as symptoms, and symptoms present like problems.
What might be different if you looked at everything as a symptom? Product defects, a drop in team productivity, absenteeism, and everything else you are currently labelling as a problem. What if they are all symptoms of something not going right.
When you look at everything as a symptom, it means you are more likely to look for the problem causing it. When you look for the problem, you are more likely to create lasting solutions.
With a lasting solution, I’m willing to bet you will find more success than addressing the symptoms.
You’ve got this.
