We all know how important is to align the goals before starting to ideate. If your team have different things in mind, the session will be confusing and frustrating. Always make sure you are all on the same page.
We can't deny the influence the space around you can have for the outcome of a creative session. It plays a vital role in how fluent the meeting will be. Don't underestimate it.
We talked to Sven to know how they are using Triggers in their daily work.
Discussions about ideas are essential to moderate. It's easy to lose the focus and end up arguing about personal taste or things that don't even relate to the briefing. So how do you keep conversations on the right track?
It's not easy to comment on other people's work without pissing them off or making them feel judged. Smart creatives know how to use feedback as a powerful tool to grow the quality of their work and inspire others to do better.
Creative sessions are all about good vibes, concentration, right mindset and expertise. These are all very different factors that can be decisive for the outcome. You want to make sure you choose the right people to contribute to your ideation session.
If you know us, you must have realised by now that we love questions. Our cards are full of them. It's not a random decision; we genuinely believe questions are a great tool to open paths and inspire others.
The creative process can be much like a rollercoaster. Up and down and up again in no time. It's impossible to avoid these emotional curves, but what you can do is identify them and fight back.
It's a good thing to fight for ideas we believe in, altho it's useless if we fight for them just because they are ours. When you work in teams to create solutions to a problem, it should never be a personal competition to see who contributed to the winning idea; it's about working together towards the same goal.
It's difficult for people to go from 0 to 10 in no time. That's why we recommend you to prepare some warming exercise before you get everyone to work, especially if you are running a workshop with clients. With these simple tricks, you'll make sure you break the ice and have your team's brain ready to ideate.
