We often fall in love with the first viable option. This makes sense. We want to support each other’s ideas.
The problem is, group consensus often leads to the safe choice. This potentially leaves better solutions off the table. This is because generating bold new ideas uses a different part of the brain from assessing risk and narrowing ideas down.
Let’s encourage each of us to be open and give non-traditional and risky options. Let’s unearth as many options as possible. Hold off on any commentary or analysis. Only after we’ve scraped the bottom of the barrow, let’s narrow down to 3 possibilities.
What alternative choices might we consider?
Thanks for caring!
