Problem Solving Techniques You Can Apply In Your Coaching Business

Nov 10, 2022

Problem solving is not only a valuable skill to have as a business owner but for life in general. It's important that we know how to solve problems and different problem solving techniques. However even knowing all this there is still one thing we must remember.


One of the most important things for you to understand as a business owner is that you will always have problems. This is a good thing though because this shows that you are alive because having problems is a part of life.


Some people come to me and say “Once I make X amount of money then I won't have any more problems.”


The reality is you will always have problems.


The problems you have now will be different from the problems you have when you make more money. No matter what stage you are at right now, it's important to learn how to effectively problem solve and how you use your brain, which is the most valuable tool you have for solving any problem.


Let’s get into the 3 steps of problem solving in your business:


1. Identify the root cause of the problem


We have to look at two big things when determining what the root problem is. First is looking at the data or numbers and second, what is going on with your own feelings.


Some coaches only want to look at one or the other when they start looking for their problem. They only look at the math and the data and are left with all the emotional baggage that stops them from moving forward.


On the other hand some just go straight emotional and say that It's all in your brain and it's all in your emotions, etc. But this doesn't give you any tangible solutions to solving the math problems and therefore the business cannot grow.


It’s important to approach your problem with a combination of data and emotion in order to find the right solution.


2. Understand how businesses work and how our own brain works


Understanding how your brain works is going to help you solve problems dealing with your emotions or drama problems while business knowledge is going to help you solve math or data problems. This is going to help you find out what the root cause of the problem actually is and apply the right solution to that problem.


3. Troubleshoot like an experimenter


Troubleshoot like someone who's running tons of experiments, like a scientist. In your business, what you want to do is pretend you’re a scientist and look at the problem objectively before making a hypothesis. You are no longer one who is attached to the outcomes of these experiments, you’re just running them.


Practicing this and maintaining this mindset will help you identify precisely what is your actual problem for you to be able to solve it and prevent it from recurring.
