This journal has two parts.
Part 1 – Read the article: Find Innovation where you least expect it:
After reading this article, evaluate a problem you recently worked to resolve in your organization.
– Identify which of the 3 “Fixedness Traps” you feel hindered your innovation/resolution
– Describe how you arrived at an outcome and if or how you broke through the fixedness or came to a predictable resolution.
– What suggestions do you have for yourself or work team to move beyond it next time?
Part 2 – Reflect on the what you learned about your thinking processes overall and how you view yourself as a thinker. What do you now understand about yourself and are you setting any stretch aspirations for yourself in these areas?
I work in Financial Aid, and have attached a paper that addresses some of these problems currently.
