Not knowing the problem and no knowing the solution is a great  position for a vision caster like a film director to remain in when he is collaborating with artists.

People have a greater sense of empowerment if you invite them into the problem solving earlier.  It really creates a collaborative environment where creativity escalates in an exponential fashion.

I like the idea of entering into problem solving situations with an open mind because it makes me feel humble, light and supported…
