Beyond Brainstorming™: 3 Steps to Lead Better Idea Discovery Meetings and Enhance Your Impact

Presenter: Marguerite Mcleod-Fleming

According to results of recent academic studies, traditional brainstorming meetings not only generate lower quality ideas than other methods, but they actually prevent the best ideas from surfacing. We have all been in meetings that don't produce ideas that solve the problem at hand. Solving problems and generating new ideas is a critical part of any leader's contribution to their team. In fact, according to Price Waterhouse's CEO report, the skill of "creativity" was rated as the number one most in-demand skillset for employees.

It's time to go past outdated brainstorming techniques and learn new approaches that have been proven to uncover better ideas, especially in team settings.

In this webinar, you will learn an evidence-based system that has been used to generate breakthrough ideas for thousands of organizations around the world. Marguerite Mcleod-Fleming will walk you through a 3-Step process to organize better meetings that will produce an immediate shift in how ideas are formed. She will discuss how a systems-based approach to idea generation focuses creativity to help you make counter-intuitive connections that are the basis for really great solutions.
