Brainstorming: Less Storm and More Brain

Brainstorming: Less Storm and More Brain

Many innovation drives are centered on the process of brainstorming. The technique was originally developed and propagated by Alex Osborn in 1953 in his book Applied Imagination. In essence brainstorming is where a group of people come together and...

High-quality piece Gert. I agree with the recommendations on brainwriting and method 635, followed by an incubation period. You will create less behavioral inhibition to sharing ideas as well as commenting on them or adding to them, particularly by less assertive people.

Good post Gert Scholtz. I was lucky in my advertising career to have only ever had to get involved in a few of these things. Creative people are hired because they are self-contained brainstorming sessions. The most people I ever brainstormed with was one. My partner, and even then not always. The few that I did attend were exercises in futility, or designed to involve the client and keep them happy. Thank God there were goodies on the table. The best clients I ever had where the ones who always said these four words...."You're the creative expert".

Thanks a bunch, Kevin 鈥 for your praise, but even more so for your linkage: intention + perception 鈥> behavior 鈥> (work) environment. Which all flows into, and creates, the cultures we inhabit. Understanding the physiology at play here is so important, and so overlooked!

WHy should answer from a balanced holistic approach: 1. You have to make money unless you running a charity. Otherwise its not a business its just fun extracurricular stuff. 2. You must serve their needs or wants otherwise there is no market. 3. The price must be fair and reasonable otherwsie they the market cannot afford it. 3. Take away all the risk.

Self awareness has many definitions and they seem to gather around specific ideals. For me self awareness is the ability to look inside one's self and determine the absolutes that drive their behavior. Resolve the absolutes into their conscious selves and explore new behaviors from the same absolutes. Behavior is what we experience at the pinnacle of a situation without, sometimes, regard to the absolutes that may drive the behavior. This is challenging as we have recently determined through social media that our behavior should align with our goals. When in fact success is derived from our absolutes that determine behavior in our seeking goals. Self awareness is a dark journey of unwinding what our behaviors represent within our belief structure and then determining what that structure will be from that point forward. Self awareness is the process of declaring emotional bankruptcy and wiping the slate clean. Great discussion.

In my experience, self-awareness has more to do with SQ, rather than EQ, although any kind of intelligence is bound to contribute to it. SQ is the so-called spiritual intelligence, having to do with our sense of morality and transcendental perception.
