Creativity in Groups

Creativity in Groups

harnessing the hive mind of your own group

WHAT’S THE INTENTION?

To explore what helps a group to work well together, and what it needs to be creative together.

WHY ARE WE DOING THAT?

When we’re brainstorming, we don’t always manage to honour new ideas (no matter how good they are). Shooting down, discomfort and awkwardness are the death of creativity.

Working collaboratively with others requires a set of new tricks.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

More creative and efficient problem solving and increased productivity in teams and groups.

(Caution: the team leader needs to be on board.)

WHO’S IT FOR?

Teams and groups that need, or want, to find better ways to work collaboratively and cooperatively – particularly for when they are problem solving and solution hunting.
