I've done it, and if you've ever got a stack of feedback forms after a presentation, you've probably done it. You go through all the feedback forms ignoring the "Great job" "Learnt a lot" comments and go straight for the form that declares: "That was a load of mumbo jumbo". And then you flagellate yourself.

Four Ways to Make Boring Meetings (read classes) Better with the Torrance Incubation Model

Four Ways to Make Boring Meetings (read classes) Better with the Torrance Incubation Model | Serious Play | Scoop.it

Paul "Torrance pinpointed 18 cognitive skills that are part of the creative thinking process. They include humor, imagination, originality, and synthesizing. For the sake of simplicity, let’s take humor as an example.In what ways might I incorporate humor to heighten my team’s anticipation about our upcoming strategic planning meeting? "

[4 Ways to Incorporate Humor in a meeting/class]

1. One way to incorporate humor is by sending a funny video in your meeting email confirmation:

“Hi All, I look forward to seeing you tomorrow at 10 am at our strategic planning session. In preparation for the meeting, please watch this quick, three-minute YouTube video. Cheers!”

Your team members will quickly realize that the video is Tripp and Tyler’s parody of “Every Meeting Ever,” hilariously accurate with all the usual suspect personalities. You’ll have them surprised and laughing, and at the meeting tomorrow you can open with a confession and that you are turning over a new leaf on boring, unproductive meetings.

Videos are effective to stoke humor but there are so many other possibilities.

2. Another way to use humor is to draw on your own strengths. For example, I can imagine my punster father writing this email to his banking colleagues:

“A wealth manager, an operations technician, and the CEO walked into a bar. Come to tomorrow’s meeting at 10 am and I will reveal the punchline!”

This is setting the tone. It’s what teacher Emily Hyland likes to call “making a pitch.”

3. Another possibility to engage humor and originality is to pose a question:

“As you prepare for tomorrow’s strategy meeting at 10 am, think about the following question: In what ways might we incorporate productive humor into this and future meetings? The funnier your response, the better. See you there!”

Take just 3 minutes at the start of the meeting to share and have a laugh.

4. When you connect humor to the very topic of your meeting, you will get right to the next stage of Torrance's model and dive deeper into the topic.

If you are discussing the development of an online financial portal, your email might look like this:

“In preparation for tomorrow’s development meeting at 10 am, please consider the following question: What tweaks might we make to the product so that customers experience a smile or a laugh during their user experience? The wackier the ideas the better, as crazy ideas can help us break out of the current predictability of our thinking.”

This Is How To Make A Team Brainstorming Session Effective

This Is How To Make A Team Brainstorming Session Effective | Serious Play | Scoop.it

If you want to hold brainstorms that unearth better, more creative ideas, it all starts with the number of people in the room.

 

That’s my first tip for you: Follow the “pizza rule” for brainstorming. If you’re unfamiliar with the “pizza rule,” it’s the idea that if you have more people in a room than you could feed with a pizza, there are too many people in that room to hold a productive meeting.

 

The same rule goes for a brainstorming session: If you’ve got a dozen people sitting around a table, expect a really long list of truly mediocre ideas.

 

So, what else can you do other than bribe a group of two to six people with pizza to unearth good ideas? So glad you asked.

Andrea Ross's curator insight, March 27, 6:21 AM

As a High D/I on the DiSC model I've always loved a good brainstorming session. Nice little article to get you thinking and perhaps change things up a little in the boardroom. Also check out Edward De Bono's 6 Thinking Hats book - fast and effective way to problem solve involving brainstorming that you might also like to read. Have a great week ahead. 

CCM Consultancy's curator insight, April 1, 2:33 AM

Squashing bad ideas could lead people to fear speaking up, missing out on good ideas as a result. But if you’re giving every idea equal due regardless of merit, then you get off-track real fast and end up down a bad idea rabbit hole.
