Gaylen Paulson
Gaylen Paulson, Associate Dean and Executive Director of Executive Education Programs, UT's McCombs School of Business Dr. Gaylen D. Paulson immediately engaged EWTG members and guests during the June luncheon by challenging them to solve the following problem. Dr. Paulson, a University of Texas McCombs School of Business Associate Dean and Director of the Texas Executive Education program, spoke and interacted with the group about creative problem solving. He encouraged the use of creativity to find better solutions, as well as emphasizing the need to spend sufficient time to understand problems for which solutions are being sought. Members and guests were reminded that children are normally creative because they have no preconceived notions and have great imaginations. He said successful creative problem solvers usually have some common traits, including producing a greater quantity of ideas (some good, some not so good) that result in an overall higher number of good ideas. These creative people also are not limited in the range of solutions they consider. He also noted that many creative people have the common hobby of gardening (when the brain is being stimulated but almost in the background, where "ah-ha" moments can often result). Dr. Paulson explained the importance of spending time defining and understanding problems - why there is a problem, why it is happening -- before jumping to solutions. He suggested that being around whiners can even be a good thing at times because it can help to surface problems that can then be better defined with a little digging. He spoke about innovative breakthroughs made by people who are close to a subject area but not the expert in the field. Dr. Paulson provided the example of the development of Pringles potato chips, suggested by someone with the hobby of pressing plant leaves. Using one activity to creatively inform the possibilities for innovation in another field is most often how he believes advances are made. He also warned that good solutions can sometimes be the barrier to great solutions, and warned against suffering from "cognitive arthritis" or not being open to change. The McCombs School executive consults and provides executive training programs to a wide range of private and public entities. He graciously provided a certificate good for a two-day executive training course to the luncheon attendee with the birthday closest to June 22nd.
