      Hi Dan,
      Another great episode!

      Tina description of “frame-storming” reminded me of your discussion of “Clarity” in TO SELL IS HUMAN, where you write “clarity – the capacity to help others see their situations in fresh and more revealing ways and to identify problems they didn’t realize they had.”

      It seems to me that what she calls “frame-storming” could be a very useful tool for developing clarity around any type of problem.


    2. Interesting concept of frame storming. It is not easy to fall in love with the problem. I agree with Dan we try to jump to solution mode immediately that’s me as well. However this is good food for thought and for this to work we need to be more deliberate in coming up with solutions to solve problems. Good one.

    3. The big idea here is that your first solution to a problem is not likely to be your best solution. This is why working to better understand the problem and its environment is key. My father was a very creative person, but as I watched him deal with a situation, I saw that he spent way more time studying a problem than he did implementing the solution. This allowed him to come up with solutions that were much more elegant that wouldn’t have happened had he just implemented the first thing that came to his mind. Also, can’t wait to summarize your new book at my blog.
