Be A Problem Solver

Train the people around you as well as yourself to become problem solvers. When someone in your organization comes to you with a problem, ask them to come up with at least one workable solution to the problem themselves. Ask; "What would you suggest we do?" and better yet; "What do you consider to be our options?" Ask yourself these questions when you run up against a situation. Be a problem solver not a problem finder.
