When you're stuck on a problem, it often helps to look at it from another perspective. A "fresh pair of eyes" can be all that you need to come up with a great solution.
But sometimes it's difficult to think about what this new perspective might be. You may be so used to dealing with a situation in the same way that you simply can't see any alternative. And, as a result, you may miss out on a better, more efficient, or longer-term answer to your problem.
This is when the Reframing Matrix can help. In this article, we look at how you can use this simple tool to look at problems from different points of view.
