Getting Off Your But!

It was a meeting that occurred a few years back that brought my attention to something profound. I was with a client brainstorming a group of interrelated challenges that were ongoing in her life.

About 15 minutes into the discussion, I became aware of a pattern to the talk. I would hear her share something that for me pointed to an obvious solution. I would make a suggestion. No sooner did I make the suggestion in an attempt to get the brainstorming going, then I'd hear something that rang a familiar unnerving bell.

I had heard this tolling before. It was almost a decade earlier that I was in an undergraduate class during a supposedly instructive class on brainstorming. The instructor, a professor, had just explained to the class what brainstorming was about and how we could benefit our co-workers by using it to solve problems.

He emphasized the importance of never shooting down any idea offered by the participants because it would discourage further creativity and sharing. He suggested that a much better way to brainstorm is to be open to what everyone had to offer, no matter how our preconceived notions might judge them.


Do you find this concept "provoking?" Care to read more? Want to take action that will "provoke your success?" This and fifty-seven more chapters designed to provoke your success can be found here.
