Transitions from preproduction, to tracking, to mixing

Hello! Thank you for doing this Q&A!
I'm curious how you approach each part of the album process to not only get the artist in a good place to get their best performances, but also help to get the overall vision/goals for the album reached?

My whole production technique is based on two goals; First is stripping away everything the artist IS NOT and and highlighting/stressing everything that is unique about them.Second ,I am
always working towards the mix getting what I need to fill the canvas.From preproduction thru all stages I insist that all the players have the freedom to play their parts without any interference.
I always take the time to talk to all the players to get them comfortable with me and the process. For me my main goal is "KEEPING THE EYE ON THE BALL". It is SO EASY for a production
to lose sight of its original goals and the recording to become unfocused.
