How to lead a productive and creative brainstorm

Brainstorms can be difficult to run. The loudest people take over, the status quo seeps into each solution, and you leave with nothing you can use. It doesn’t have to be this way. Let’s explore and design an effective brainstorming method. It’s like a roadmap for taking our brains on an adventurous journey. In just ten short lessons, you will create a personalized game plan for your brainstorms that yield unique, varied, and actionable results.
