Problem solving has an atmosphere. The conditions of that atmosphere will determine the life or death of those efforts. For solutions to emerge there needs to be a free-flow of information from a myriad of directions and voices. There needs to be a sense of safety even when the content being discussed is stormy.

Conversations include sharing by all and listening by all.

There is an old proverb that says, “A fool finds no pleasure in understanding, but delights in airing his own opinions.” Another guides us stating, “Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed.”

Another key atmospheric condition for this work is trust. Trust is at the heart of who we are, as Entrusted Foundation. We work to cultivate an atmosphere of trust that allows for the kinds of honest and detailed conversations that must happen to find true answers.

There is power in availability to possibility in the midst of trusting relationships. Such is the atmosphere Entrusted Foundation works to cultivate. For those who enter the conversations having difficulty believing that true solutions can be found, we help foster growth in them being able to believe.

Just because we haven’t known doesn’t mean we will never know. Entrusted Foundation believes we can come to know the answers needed for designing solutions. If we stay in the conversations and explore together long enough revelation of new possibilities will happen.
