to issue-bust: the ability to correctly identify and successfully
address any problem that is blocking or limiting progress.”

Perhaps more than any other breakthrough thinking technique,
issue-busting shows you how to replace the reality you’ve got with the future you want.

Whatever it is that you’re looking to transform – your business, your career, your relationship or your life – issue-busting will show you how. A robust process that produces instant results, it works whether the problems you face are chronic or acute. Issue-busting is a skill you’ll find yourself using all day, every day, for the rest of your life.

If you’re hired to issue-bust for a living, you could be forgiven for thinking you have little to gain from learning this tool. In fact, senior execs, scientists, engineers and other types of professional problem-solvers consistently benefit the most. Being paid to get results, they quickly realize the power of a process that enables them to raise not only their game, but everyone else’s too.

Issue-busting extends your problem-solving skill-set beyond your subject-matter expertise to provide a process you can use in any situation to produce measurable, immediate results.

If you had told me we would transform the way we tackle issues in under three hours, I would have said that was impossible. We left the off-site with a real skill to take back to the workplace and use day in, day out. People are buzzing. Fantastic!
