Beyond Brainstorming: Fix Perpetual Dull and Pointless Meetings With Advanced Brainstorming Methods!
Updated: Apr 26
Are you used to seeing;
Dull and pointless meetings?
Same solutions offered by the same group of people?
Do you hear things like;
“Well, that was a waste of time”
“What are we doing?”
“So, what else do you think?”
“Come on guys, let's think out of the box”
“I'm not a creative person”
We learn in our yellow belt certification course that when it comes to workplace problems, the general guideline is that 96% of problems come from the process, and 4% can be credited to the employee. That goes for dull and pointless meetings too! If your employees or coworkers show up to a meeting with an energy drink, sleepy eyes, and a lackluster attitude, we can guarantee the problem isn’t with the participant, but the facilitator!

When trying to get ideas from the team, facilitators have to be much more than talking heads. And asking for ideas out of the blue is sure to be a tranquilizer to the face of employees.
Flat, unproductive brainstorming sessions are extremely common in modern-day organizations. In our online Green Belt course, we learn in the “improve” phase that brainstorming can be spiced up with some very simple techniques and tools.
