Protocol: Brainstorming
Adapted from: Evocative Coaching, p. 292

Purpose: To generate as many ideas as possible

What to do:
  • Set a minimum number of possibilities to generate
  • Set a time limit to keep things moving rapidly (if you are brainstorming synchronously)
  • Withhold judgment or evaluation of possibilities
  • Encourage wild and exaggerated possibilities
  • Let no possibility go unsaid
  • Build on possibilities put forth by others
  • Combine and expand possibilities
  • Go for quantity rather than quality
