The Five Problem-Solving Styles

There are five problem-solving approaches that people typically employ. They include:

  1. Ego-Oriented
    With this style, the supervisor performs all troubleshooting tasks or makes conclusions by themselves with no input from others. They determine what the situation is, gather background information, generate possible outcomes, choose the final solution, implement the solution, and conduct an evaluation to determine whether the solution actually solved the barrier.
  2. Deferred
    With this style, the supervisor defers addressing the predicament or making the decision. They are aware that a problem exists or a decision must be made, but they choose not to deal with it at the moment. Deferred problem-solving might take the form of looking for a more perfect solution, waiting to see if the complication will resolve itself, or waiting for the right moment to make a decision.
  3. Other-Oriented
    With this style, the administrator has others perform all the problem-solving tasks. The manager recognizes that an issue exists or a decision must be made, but delegates the responsibility for correcting the situation to others.
  4. I/We-Oriented
    With this style, the supervisor includes others in the initial steps of the problem-solving process. They will seek the help of others in identifying the problem, gathering background information, and in weighing possible alternative solutions.
  5. We-Oriented
    With this style, the administrator shares the problem-solving process with others. The manager’s input carries no more weight than the input offered by other people involved in the process.

Problem-solving training programs will help improve your decision-making processes and help you solve difficulties in your company in a more professional manner.

Four Key Factors in Choosing a Conflict Resolution Style

There is no universal best way to resolve barriers or make choices. All five approaches are useful in certain situations. Supervisors and coordinators should consider the following four key factors in choosing the best style for a particular situation:

  • The maturity level of the employees involved in the situation.
  • The difficulty level of the complication encountered.
  • The constraints in a given situation.
  • The need for acceptance of the final solution or decision.

Once the style has been chosen, the administrator and employees can go ahead with attempting to solve the problem at hand. Use the powerful problem-solving courses and games available at HRDQ to improve decision-making in your organization!
