    Can anyone tell me that name of the person who originated the technique we used yesterday? It was a Japanese name, like Tai bo (now that would make for a fun workshop :) )

    When knowledge is shared it grows and multiplies. So does friendship, care and empathy. Logos & Pathos

    A great meetup last night led by the extremely entertaining and expert facilitator Nicky Hayward Wright. New ideas designed to encourage constructive idea generation were shared with all who attended, with knowledge gained that can be applied in the workplace.

      Thanks for your great hosting. To recap some points from the reverse brainstorming session: Five key areas of this exercise: Quantity beats quality, Suspend judgement; Amplify by using “Yes And” to build and expand; No solutions are allowed; Remember De Bono's Six Thinking Hats: Analytical(White), Emotional(Red), Negative(Black), Positive(Yellow), Counter-factual(Green), Combo/Orchestration(Blue­).

    An invaluable session . Reverse brainstorming is an invaluable tool . The ideas flowed and it demonstrated that it is easier to think negatively, which is what often holds organisations and individuals back . It is really interesting when you reflect, to hear negative thinking in contexts outside of a reverse brainstorming.

    • Nicky H.

      Thanks Bryan for your reflection from the evening and as you have pointed out how often do we hear the water cooler negative discussion - and how good it is to consider we know this is an opprotunity to reframe; i.e. turn the negative into a positve :-)
