    3. 3. “Problems cannot besolved by thinking withinthe framework in which they were created.” Albert Einstein
    4. 4. Is this you?• You offer an idea, but you are more often told told why it won’t work, rather than why it will?• You notice that not all ideas in the business are given a real chance to grow.• You are so often busy that you don’t have time to discuss other peoples bright ideas• You hear yourself or others using the phrases like ‘Yes, but...’, We’ve tried that before..’ or ‘That won’t work because...’• There are some people in your business you really don’t enjoy sharing your ideas with.

    6. 6. S Suspend The two-minute pause - every time you hear an idea you practise this drill. Visualize yourself giving the idea rather than receiving it Give out positive energyUN
    7. 7. SU Understand Really try to get inside the other person’s head with open questions: ‘Tell me more..’, ‘Let me understand..’ ‘What else do you like about your idea...?’ Paraphrase what you think they mean, and check you’ve got it right: ‘So are you saying that...’N
    8. 8. SUN Nurture Make it better by ‘building’: So if you think X, maybe we could X and Y Seek value/find an angle ‘What’s the big idea behind this idea.’ Find alternatives: ‘How else could we do this?

Insist that there is only one way to do it.
