In the sentence below, should we use the preposition "of"? Or rather nothing at all? Thank you.

In the video, we present one possible solution of how you could go back to...

Context:

We’d like to present you our idea for a possible campaign. A campaign which shows that mistakes were also being made at the top management level. However, the important thing here is how we handle those mistakes. In the video, we present one possible solution of how COMPANY could go back to their goal.

  • This is why we need context. The sentence seems to be going south starting with "how", but can't say for sure without the rest of it. – Hot Licks Mar 30 '16 at 21:43

    It's terrible wording, and "solution" is probably not a good word to be using there. – Hot Licks Mar 31 '16 at 0:52

If, per your comments, you insist on a rewording as close to the original as possible consider:

In the video, we present one possible solution that illustrates how COMPANY could go back to their goal.

But I think @EdwinAshworth had a point:

In the video, we present one possible solution. One that will allow COMPANY to achieve their goal.
