Solving……I Got 99 Problems

Parks and recreation professionals are challenged on an almost hourly basis to solve problems for the benefit of the community. These problems may range from how to provide services to an underserved community (without any additional resources), to developing a plan for implementing a new park design.  All of these “problems” present challenges to the professional. Using problem solving techniques and creativity will allow the professional to develop solutions on behalf of their community. This session will detail problem solving techniques and how to implement this process in their daily work flow.
