About This Class


Welcome to Rocking Your Next Brainstorming Session!

I am sure that at some point in your career, you have been either invited to or hosted a brainstorming session to come up ideas. Ideas to either solve a specific problem or to create a new product or service or for something else altogether. 

Most brainstorming sessions don't work. They either don't get the creative ideas that you expect to come up with or nothing happens after the brainstorming, which leads to a feeling of fun but wasted time.

But it need not be like that. I've hosted more than 200 brainstorming sessions and what I have learnt is that these can be the most productive use of our time, if done well. Not only that, they can also be personally fulfilling for the people who participate as they feel creative and alive during the process. 

So, I will share the simple yet powerful tips that helps me rock the brainstorming sessions that I host, so you can rock your next brainstorming session.  

Topics covered in the class include:

  • How do you prepare for your next brainstorming session
  • How to start a brainstorm
  • How to ensure that no one hijacks the entire conversation
  • How to get introverts and extroverts to contribute equally
  • How to help the participants get more creative ideas
  • How to end a brainstorming session 
  • And much more

With the right preperation and with practice you can become a rockstar in running brainstorming sessions and helping your team get extremely productive and creative at the same time. 

While experience of having run a brainstorming session will be useful, you can learn everything there is to learn with no prior experience as well. 

See you in class,
