Brainstorming asks you to come up with thoughts and ideas that you may not even know you had.  These ideas may turn out to be a bit off the wall, crazy even, but they are ones that can be built upon and added to.  Brainstorming techniques can help you come up with very creative solutions to a problem, create new opportunities, or improve the quality of work or services that you offer. 

 

The key to successful brainstorming is to leave any and all criticism at the door.  The goal is to open up all possibilities, and criticism will put a halt to the process.  One very successful brainstorming technique is to have an interactive group brainstorming session.  By enlisting the help of others you will bring in the experience and ideas into solving your problem, creating a solution, or creating an opportunity.  Group brainstorming may cause some people to bottle up their ideas instead of share them for fear of criticism.  These group sessions need to be monitored closely so that criticism is not a part of the process.  Ideas need to flow freely, and you may find a better solution with the group than you would have relying on just yourself. 

 

A great brainstorming technique to get your creative juices flowing is to do brain warm ups.  The first warm up is to participate in an opposites match.  On the left side of a paper write down 15 every day words, not related to the topic or subject at hand.  Give yourself 5 to 10 minutes, however long you may think that you need to think of and write down 3 opposites of each word.  Don’t pause too long on one particular word, the idea is to wake your brain up, get it warm and used to thinking of ideas quickly.  If you are working in a group, have one person say the word out loud and everyone else make a list in front of them.  Perform the match several times so that everyone has a turn reading a list out loud and participating in the opposites writing. 

 

Another great warm up is to play a word game.  There are hundreds of popular word games to choose from.  One of the most popular games is to run through the alphabet.  If you are working with a team, the first team member says a word that begins with the letter A, the next a word that is somehow related to the first, but begins with the letter B, the next C, and so on.  If you are working by yourself, write the words down on paper as quickly as possible. 

 

Using brainstorming warm ups before your actual brainstorming sessions can really help to get your creative juices flowing.  Thoughts and ideas will come quickerFind Article, and more freely.
