A characteristic of problem-solving efforts is that, as plans are developing and potential solutions are emerging, some people raise objections. This tool is one that has been developed to encourage us to invite those objections so that they can be dealt with constructively, rather than attempting to suppress them and thereby allow them to fester and cause greater problems over time. It is based on the idea that it is understandable, realistic and potentially quite constructive for people to raise objections to proposed plans of action (see ‘Motivational interviewing’).
