You Can't Read the Label of the Jar you are in.

A Director in the theatre, like any team leader, occupies a unique position.

He or she is invested with all the authority. But the director is not the boss. This person doesn’t sign the paycheques. They don’t have the authority to fire anyone. In fact, the director is most often an independent contractor hired for one production only and has no responsibility for the long-term health of the organization. Yet the Director’s perspective is the most valuable.

Because the Director’s most valuable job is to stand outside the jar, and ask questions about what’s going on inside the jar.

The best theatre directors don’t tell the actors how to act. Or tell the designer how to build the set. Or tell the playwright how to write the play. The best directors I’ve ever met merely ask insightful questions of others, pushing an already-high performing team further and deeper.

Everyone in the business is expected to bring their A-game to the table. The expert director probes and prods and queries them until it’s an A++ game.

Sound familiar? It’s strikingly similar to the work that any leader, coach or facilitator does on a day-to-day basis with any high performing team. When I am fcilitstor for an organization I’m often the last knowledgeable person in the room. But my persistent questioning, my attempts to understand, force everyone to question their assumptions.

If you chose this card it suggests that you value the outside eye. You know that even the most high-performing team can’t see the forest AND the trees at the same time.
