7 Ways To Reignite Your Passion For Success

7 Ways To Reignite Your Passion For Success | Leadership | Scoop.it
No matter what or who you’re involved in, it’s tough to keep the fires of passion burning. Why do you think one out of every two marriages ends in divorce? This certainly holds true for a business plan or product launch.
Blake Hawley's insight:

One crucial omission in this otherwise good article is "Know when to change directions."  Too often leaders passionate and in lonve with an idea fail to listen to their colleagues or direct reports, fail to see facts and blindly follow a passion.  Great leaders know when it's time to seek alternatives and have the humility to let go.

Using Brainwriting For Rapid Idea Generation

Using Brainwriting For Rapid Idea Generation | Leadership | Scoop.it

When a group wants to generate ideas for a new product or to solve a problem, you will usually hear the clarion call, “Let’s brainstorm!” You assemble a group, spell out the basic ground rules for brainstorming (no criticism, wild ideas are welcome, focus on quantity, combine ideas to make better ideas) and then have people yell out ideas one at a time.

Brainstorming is often the method of choice for ideation, but it is fraught with problems that range from participants’ fear of evaluation to the serial nature of the process — only one idea at a time. Brainwriting is an easy alternative or a complement to face-to-face brainstorming, and it often yields more ideas in less time than traditional group brainstorming.

I love this article  1)because I am guilty of the brainstorm clarion call and ater effects mentioned - like the author was in my meeting room

2) it is a "spot-on, dead practical, better alternative  - how to!"
