How to make problem solving in groups more creative and meaningful?
  • Description

    "When we get together in groups to solve some problems or discuss some issues, we often forget to ask the basic questions: the what, the when, the why, the who, the how type of questions. And this is because nobody wants to appear as an amateur, expertise is more welcome. Your reputation is an important currency and nobody wants to gamble on it."

    "When you leave the amateur side of you outside of the room and you appear with your expertise, it's like throwing a party and take away all the drinks and you have that party with just red meat on the table. You can guess that that party is not going very far, something gets stuck somewhere. And that's where a lot of groups get stuck cause no juice, no party."

    "(...) group imagination and meaning, creativity are starting to bubble up and coming alive. And that I bet is something that you want. I bet that you want more people in your groups to show up in those meetings and problem-solving spaces with best creative-selves, motivated and with the best ideas. But that's not what always happens. Because money stays in the pocket unless you decide to process to get this money out."
