Coffee Break Training: Company Officer Problem-Solving   [open pdf - 383KB]

"A CO [Company Officer] is responsible for accomplishing many things. There are two critical skills that help with completion of tasks: knowing how to allocate the proper resources to solve needs and to determine if you alone, or others, are needed to solve a problem. As a CO, you have many opportunities to learn about leadership and management. Electing to take courses or workshops helps to build your skills and knowledge. Research using the Internet also provides a no-cost alternative for updating your knowledge. When faced with the need to solve a problem, you have choices, as to who can best handle the situation. It is the CO's responsibility to identify and solve problems that can be taken care of at the company level and to inform management about other critical problems that require upper level attention."
