The Extra Insight: Getting started on a positive footing is key to excellent results. I use the first 5 minutes to frame the session and set the rules. For framing, review the purpose, timeframe, desired outcome, and next steps. For rules, explain that every idea is a good idea (do not let other participants negate or dissect the idea) and every idea will be written on the whiteboard—every participant’s contribution stimulates creative thinking! The goal is to get as many ideas on the white board as possible during the brainstorming period.
