Briefly describe how you used problem-solving skills to resolve a problem you encountered during your volunteering experience. (The problem may not have been one in the organization. It could be one you encountered that had to do with your role or how you were going to accomplish things as a volunteer.)

The IDEAL problem-solving process developed by Bradford and Stein (1993) is implemented by: (I) Identifying the problem, (D) Defining the problem, (E) Exploring strategies, (A) Acting on ideas, and (L) Looking for effects.
