Don’t Make This Common Brainstorming Mistake That Leads to Failure

Don't Make This Common Brainstorming Mistake That Leads to Failure

Imagine you’re leading a brainstorming session at your company. You want to come up with growth strategies for your startup, so you gather your team in a meeting room, generate lots of ideas, and choose the most promising one. Many small business owners use that approach, but unfortunately, it often doesn’t work. In fact, it makes your team less creative.

The usual method – where the group generates ideas together – doesn’t work because group members influence each other’s suggestions. Your brain solves a problem by retrieving relevant memories that might lead to a novel solution. When someone else suggests an idea, your mind limits itself to related memories, eliminating ideas you might have considered and impeding the creative process.

An effective group brainstorm circumvents that trap. It includes a four-step process that promotes creativity and independent thought:

Step 1: Think independently.

First, ask each person to generate his or her own ideas before the group comes together.

Step 2: Share all ideas.

Next, ask each person to submit his or her best ideas. Compile them in one document, and then send them to the group via email or a Wiki page. Suggestions that might have been overlooked in a meeting will have a chance to be seen.

Step 3: Review separately.

Before you meet in a group, ask each person to take notes on the other ideas. Have them look for the potential advantages of each idea or solutions to potential problems.

Step 4: Discuss together.

Finally, now it’s time to bring the group in for the brainstorm. Ask each person to suggest ideas that seem the most promising, then debate the pro’s and con’s.

Because each person reviewed the ideas independently, you’ll have a more fruitful discussion. When you do settle on a solution, the group will be more likely to support the outcome.

How to Brainstorm Breakthrough Ideas for Your Business

How to Brainstorm Breakthrough Ideas for Your Business

It’s also a time to reflect on your business and find the spark for your next breakthrough idea.

No clue what that is? To ignite new light bulb moments, start with these idea-generating tactics:

Embrace fear.

Ask yourself: “What scares me?” Then, explore that dark space. What if you overhauled your product and reintroduced it – what features would it have? Where would you invest money if you replaced a major conference or trade show with other lead-generating activities? Even if something is working for you, is there a way to make it better? As for your competition, instead of studying what they’re doing, contemplate what they’re afraid of, too.

Pull the trigger.

First, state your problem or challenge. Then, gather several unrelated items. The ideas don’t even have to make sense at first. The goal is to find ways to connect them back to the product.

Create a massive matrix.

Gather around, get out your big white pad, and create a huge matrix of all the possible ways that you could address a problem or seize an opportunity. Then, recombine those elements in unique ways.

Take time out.

It’s summer. Take a break from your business, even if it’s just a quick getaway or a weekend disconnect. Rest and recharge to stoke creativity and prevent burnout.

5 Networking Tips That Entrepreneurs Need to Know

5 Networking Tips That Entrepreneurs Need to Know

How can you maximize the benefits of attending professional networking events as an entrepreneur or business owner?

1. Have an agenda.

Not all networking events are created equal. It behooves you to research the best of the bunch in your area and decide which might be best for your overall start-up goals. What is your objective for the event? Are you looking to find a cofounder? Are you looking to meet investors? Are you simply looking to get more educated or inspired? Asking yourself simple questions like these before selecting a networking event can help refine your search – and, in turn, get more out of your selections.

2. Work the room.

Consider the law of averages – the more people you meet at one of these events, the greater the likelihood of making networking magic. Spend no more than 5 to 7 minutes per conversation.

3. Take notes.

It’s impossible to remember specifics on every person you meet at these shindigs, so don’t be afraid to take notes. The easiest place to jot stuff down is on the back of someone’s business card. Use keywords to help you contextualize a person’s strengths when you get home and sort through your stuff.

Another option here is to use your smartphone, or bring along a small notebook or pad, for more detailed scribbles – though it’s best to do this in the privacy of a corner or the restroom.

4. Watch what you drink.

Sure, alcohol makes it easier for all of us to meet new people. And, yes, beer and wine are standard at most of these networking events. Still, moderation should rule the day.

5. Follow up.

The most important step in making new acquaintances is following up. Post on social media sites, email, or whatever – just close the loop. You always should follow up with the hosts of the event, too. Organizers frequently have large networks and can connect you with others easily.
