If you’ve been in business any length of time, you’ve probably had to overcome a challenge or two along the way. One of the biggest challenges a business has to overcome in this day and age is the fact that so many people—including the most desirable hires—are choosing to work remotely.
If you’ve worked in an office that promotes teamwork and collaboration for any length of time, then you already know the benefits of brainstorming. But if you’re new to working in a group and you haven’t yet done a brainstorming session, you might be curious what the benefits actually are.
We’ve all attended brainstorming sessions, some that generated useful ideas and some that flopped. The point behind a group session is to gather input from multiple people who can play off one another’s suggestions to come up with new concepts. But how can you make sure your session is successful and a good use of everyone’s time?
The benefits of hiring creative people are widely known. Creative team members are better at innovation and problem solving. Creative people thrive on challenges, and they’re constantly on the lookout for new ways to contribute and make things happen. They’re excited by progress and seeing a vision come to life.
Collaboration is more than throwing a group of people together to work on a project. Collaboration is an understanding that it takes the whole group to achieve the shared vision. Each person is dedicated to their fellow team members and motivated to make a contribution.
