How do you brainstorm?

I’d love to receive comments as I am starting up this blog. What techniques do you use to brainstrom? How often do you do brainstorming?

are you a wordpress website expert?

We need help with wordpress for a non-profit organization.  We are not expecting free help but need to keep costs reasonable.  Prefer central time zone but it is not absolutely necessary.

 

Ask powerful questions

Powerful questions are ones that dig deeper into a subject and bring up interesting ideas and options.  Avoid asking questions that you know the answer as if you are testing someone to see if they know the answer you have in your head.  There is no new information, ideas or combinations when you are just testing them.  Powerful questions are open ended so that the person answering is free to take the subject in a new direction.

Add the power to brainstorming so that it works

The call for brainstorming happens thousands of times a day, all over the world, and especially in business environments.  Why?  Because to come up with good solutions, better ideas, more effective methods and innovation you want to start with options.  First, before making a decision, you need to know about what choices you have and then to compare them.  Sometimes this process, of necessity, takes place in a few seconds.  Sometimes it requires collection of data or opinions that take a long time.  In any case, more options to compare and you will come up with a better thought out solution, and a better explanation or defense of that solution if asked.
