When problems occur, it is human to find fault. Which department, team or person created this problem? If you stop with finding fault, though, you have not accomplished much.

The problem with finding fault is that things are not always what they seem on the surface. Most likely, you have reduced the discomfort of admitting you have a problem.

Knowing the source of a problem is good information. However, there is a gap between assigning fault and finding solutions. You need to keep digging if you want to find solutions to problems.

Do you have: A lack of sufficient levels of trust? Insufficient focus on improving and learning together? Too many tight deadlines leading to exhaustion? Misaligned expectations?

There are, of course, countless reasons a problem happen. If you stop with assigning fault for the problem, you’re unlikely to fix even one of them. Cross the gap and find a real and lasting solution.

You’ve got this.
