Today you can read another excerpt from: “Now That’s a Great Question”

Does your team ever experience a brain freeze?

You ask your team to think with you about all the items essential to the success of the BIG GOAL/PROJECT you are working on, and suddenly it appears that the whole team has just drunk an ICEE© way too fast!

Here is a question that will melt that brain freeze and turn that ICEE© into a hot drink:

How can we do this in a way that will guarantee its failure?

You will see your team come alive! They will love your question! They may begin talking all at once! You will quickly have a long list of all the ways to guarantee the failure of your BIG GOAL/PROJECT!

Next Question—if we now know what it will take to guarantee the failure of our BIG GOAL/PROJECT, what do we have to do to guarantee the success?

It really is the same list isn’t it? For example, if never asking our customers for input will guarantee its failure, then asking our customers for their input would help guarantee its success!

You also get two BONUSES:

  1. What is the #1 energy drainer in brainstorming? The guy who responds to a brainstorming idea with, “That will never work!” The good news is, that guy will love adding to the list of what won’t work!
  2. You will get a longer list of critical elements you might have missed otherwise.

Will you please do me a favor? Will you let me know how it worked? bob.tiede@cru.org.
