Thinking to Break the Box: Asking Fresh Questions

It's as important as ever to bring fresh, innovative thinking to the problems we face in the workplace. Continual change, expanding technology, and competitive forces put increasing pressure on us to create solutions to old and new problems.

How do we expand our thinking? How do we get free of thinking ruts that lead to the same old approaches and conclusions? If we are to think outside the box, how do we break out of it?

There's a mistaken notion that managers and experts are paid to have the answers. Creative thinkers know that it's more helpful to expand the range of questions. Asking fresh questions is an essential break-the-box method.
