About this Episode

In today’s episode we explore a brainstorming technique called, “What if…”, a conversation exercise that unleashes creativity, innovation, and new ideas. Bob’nJoyce take on the topic of the seismic change in the workplace resulting from two years of Covid disruption. Many organizations are returning to the old way of work despite worker resistance and resignations. Using the “What if” technique is about creating infinite possibilities by taking a future perspective. Okay, maybe not infinite but more than you might think.

In this episode you will get:
• An actual demo of how “What if…” works.
• Why in our current tumult, the “What if…” technique is needed now more than ever
• Tips on how to synthesize and prioritize the ideas that burble up

“What if…” is an oldie but goodie technique. Our hope is that our conversation brings it back given the current chaos and discontent.
