CEO report : the psychology of the unknown : what great problem-solvers do when they get stuck

This CEO Report is about tapping into the psychological thought-processes of how great problem-solvers see, interpret and makes sense of being stuck with complexity and what they do (or fail to do) to progress. To uncover these underlying thinking patterns we administered a rigorous and systematic interview approach from clinical psychology called, Repertory Grid Technique (RGT). Our sample consists of fifty (50) seasoned CEOs /Executives spanning a wide range of industry sectors. Seven (7) inherent latent themes emerged from our analysis as to what are the core drivers (habits of mind) that help executives open up the alternatives whenever they find themselves stuck with complexity.
