Manage episode 282371004 series 2332153
There are so many problems these days that emerge on a near daily basis. Yet it is impossible to solve them all. So how do you decide which are the right problems to solve at any moment in time?

In this CareerCast, Kristen shares her insights, perspective, and actions based on her vast and deep experience on how to identify the right problems to solve and how to do it.
