The problem with old-school team members is not only they can stop their brand/agency from innovating, but, when they hold positions of power, they also scare young talent away. These people are allergic to anything that means changing the way you work or the kind of ideas you produce. If you have one of the dangerous types, these old-school guys can leave your team with boring and irrelevant team members.
Triggers is excellent opening creative paths and making it very easy for everyone to come up with ideas. Even your clients don't have any training; they'll have a great and useful time using the cards.
A goal is the essential part of a team. Without a goal, your team is just a group of people gathering around. There would be no purpose and no clear direction. That's why, before every creative meeting, we advise you to set the goal of the session very clear.
We understand roles are necessary to maintain a clear structure in a team and organisation. But there is a way you can add some fun to it; experimenting with the creative process.
It is a common problem. It could be personality, personal situation, or trust issues. Whatever the reason is, the problem is always the same: not everyone contributes with ideas when brainstorming. Even when it could sound like a huge issue and some difficult to solve, it's not. You just need to introduce one simple step in your creative sessions: first write, then share.
Admit it. We don't know how to listen really. It's a common thing. When someone comes to tell us something, while we are listening, we already think what to answer. It's an automatic mechanism inside of us, and it usually leads to a lot of prejudges and misunderstandings.
Ideating with Triggers cards could be addictive! That isn't necessarily a bad thing (we assure you there are no health contraindications), but we recommend to put a limit on the number of cards you use for each session.
Making sure everyone in the team participates in the creative process is a hard task. We are not only dealing with different personalities, but there are also many factors that could make some people quiet and others too loud.
It's reality. There are days when you or your team will be feeling lazy, unmotivated or just not in the mood of going into the ideation process.
If you have been facilitating the creative process or in charge of a creative team before, you know how tough is to direct them without sounding like a dictator or killing their motivation.
