Thinking of creative new ideas on how to help your business progress is harder than it might seem. As soon as the creative block hits, it’s hard to overcome.
Down below, we have given you 3 top tips on the best ways to brainstorm!
1.) BRAINSTORM YOUR PURPOSE
Be sure you have determined why you are doing this brainstorming session and why it is important to your business. Establish what you enjoy doing, what you are good at within work and how you want your business to serve your ideal consumer. It’s imperative you are constantly asking yourself “why?” in order to help you consider the market you are trying to target and how you can evolve within it.
2.) SET A TIME LIMIT
While it may seem like a plausible plan to continue your brainstorming session until ideas are thought of, it is actually a more effective method to set a limit. Having a firm time limit at the beginning of your brainstorm ensures everyone knows that the agreed upon goals must be met by a certain time. This will encourage you and your team to stay on track and feel motivated to accomplish the goals set.
3.) END SPECIFIC
Starting out, your brainstorming session will start out broad and general as you try and get the ideas flowing. While this is expected, it is important you gradually specify your conversation and begin to pinpoint specific areas that need to be improved. It’s important the conversation is steered towards a productive output, where ideas are established that can be put into effect that will improve your business. To do this, avoid sticking on the same topic for too long and refine the best ideas that have been thought of in order to shape and improve these ideas so they can be used as soon as possible.
