5 Tips on Better Brainstorming

  1. 1. TIPS ON BETTER BRAINSTORMNING5
  2. 2. 1.DON’T JUDGE TIP     Welcome  unusual   ideas   If  all  judgement  is  suspended,  the  good  ideas   are  more  likely  to  flow.  You  never  know  where   ideas  will  come  from,  so  the  key  is  to  make   everyone  feel  comfortable  enough  to  speak   out,  even  if  their  ideas  are  unusual
