Blame Placing versus Problem Solving
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
When a group or even pair of people encounters a problem, the first instinct is to find out who is to blame, who made the mistake, or who caused the problem. Somebody or something is to blame and everyone feels less uncomfortable � except the person blamed.
But what does blame accomplish?
The empowered group abolishes blame as an activity. When a problem arises, the people involved talk about how to solve it, not who to blame. The individuals involved examine their part in the situation to determine if they contributed in any way. The group asks what systems broke down, what circumstances existed that contributed, did lack of knowledge or training play a part? Everyone understands that there are usually several causes.
The group looks for ways to do things better, not ways to point the finger. They generate ideas about possible solutions in response to all of the causes. Groups that are intimidated by a fearful environment will emphasize one solution, usually the fastest solution, rather than a solution with 4 or 5 components. An empowered team creates a learning atmosphere where everyone looks for ways to correct mistakes, and not feel ashamed or singled out.
Many business crises arise because the organization was not willing to look at early signs of difficulty. The empowered team must search for problems continually, not wait to be hit with them. The organization that empowers people must trust individuals with hunches, must seek out problem areas aggressively, and must be open-minded.
It is difficult for an individual to stop trying to protect him or herself, becoming defensive, and avoiding acknowledgement of difficulties. Nobody likes to hear bad news or be confronted with potential problems. Yet, that is exactly what is required to survive in today’s environment. We need to develop the ability to face problems, mistakes, and weaknesses with courage. We need to be able to admit a mistake so we can determine the causes and find ways to resolve those causes. We need a climate that celebrates the recognition of a problem or mistake as an opportunity.
As a supervisor or manager, how do you influence people’s mindsets toward problem solving and away from blaming? How can you help to change this cultural characteristic? Challenge yourself to stretch behaviorally.
Do you seek all the causes of a problem? Do you acknowledge factors such as fatigue or boredom as contributory causes? Are you open-minded to solutions that help or just want the employee to do better next time? Are you mindful of mistakes or problems you have caused? Have you considered to which part of problem you contributed? Have you concluded the employee’s intent in this situation? Do you push to reach the first and fastest solution? Are you falling back onto usual responses or solutions? Can you let go of your ideas about what happened and how to best resolve it?
With each of your responses, ask yourself, "Is this a usual response for me?" If yes, change it. Force yourself to think of 3 or 4 possible solutions. Go past the first one. Find an assumption you have made related to this topic and change it. Assume your solution is wrong and think of a different one. Separate your preferences from your observations.

RAISE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
It’s now been seven years since the federal hourly minimum wage was raised to $7.25. Since 2009, the cost of living has risen by 11 percent—but many workers are stuck with the same paltry paycheck. #RaiseItDamnIt
The cost of living has risen by more than 10 percent since 2009, but millions still rely on the same minimum wage.
