Characteristics Of Good Problem Solvers

Why the key to handling problems is to be persistent

When handling problems at work, people who are good at finding solutions don’t give up; they know how to be persistent and don’t stop until they’ve solved the issue.

The thing is, all problems can and will be solved given enough time and attention. Good problem solvers know this. That’s why perseverance is such a key characteristic of these types of people. They know that ultimately they’ll be able to overcome whatever problem they face as long as they choose not to give up.

Good problem solvers also weigh out all of their possible options. There is always more than one way to tackle a problem; knowing what the best choice is will help ensure that the problem is dealt with in an effective manner. Besides knowing how to be persistent, problem solvers also know how to be careful.

Another characteristic that makes certain people great at handling problems is good communication skills. A willingness to communicate is essential to addressing problems in a timely manner because the more people that are involved, the more resources you have at your disposal.

Last, good problem solvers have a positive attitude. They don’t complain about the issue and try to wish it away or pass off the responsibility to others. A skilled problem solver will endeavor to come up with a solution and they’ll do so without negativity.

To be adept at handling problems, one must first learn to be persistent; to weigh options; and to be positive. These are the characteristics that any problem solver should possess.
