As a business owner, one of your responsibilities is stimulating creative thinking among your staff to ensure the continued development of fresh perspectives and strategies for achieving short-and long-term goals. People are your organization’s most important resource. But like any resource, it is only useful if you can tap into it and put it to good use. How much effort do you really put into encouraging your people to come up with ideas and to follow them through to a successful implementation?
You need to make the best use of your people and harness their natural creativity and genius. Your people need to focus the power of their brain and apply the knowledge, expertise, and experience they have to address the challenges the face. .
Unfortunately, this situation just doesn’t happen as often as we would like. It may seem contradictory but, people need a structure or process to follow in order to help them be more creative as well as productive. Such an approach is brainstorming.
Brainstorming sessions are a proven group approach to generate ideas relating to a specific subject matter by allowing the participants to voice their ideas, no matter how strange, weird, far-fetched, or impossible they may seem. This process generates a large number of ideas in a short period of time and allows you to whittle down the ideas that warrant further analysis and possibly implementation.
