Facilitating Idea Generation Sessions

This 4-hour workshop is practical and hard-hitting. We don’t waste your time with a lot of filler material just to make it longer and therefore appear to have more value. We focus on quality, not quantity as we teach you how to facilitate PrOp Idea Generation Sessions.

You will learn how to maximize the effectiveness of idea generation sessions by integrating the PrOp Idea Generation Process into the session and using the PrOp Idea Generation App as a tool for idea generation, evaluation, and refinement. Included with the training is a toolkit which was developed based years of our facilitating idea generation sessions.

Description

Are you tired of unproductive brainstorming meetings?

Become a highly effective idea generation session facilitator. Have you been asked to lead brainstorming sessions for your organization but are uncomfortable because you have not been trained? Have you led idea generation sessions but felt the results were disappointing?

We’ve facilitated idea generation sessions for leading Fortune 500 companies for 20+ years and want to teach you the skills, tools, and tricks we’ve honed so you can make your next idea generation session great instead of disappointing!
