Diamond communication


When you are stuck with a task, look for possibilities and alternatives instead of limitations.

In the beginning, it is easy to get stuck with thinking “this suggestion is unrealistic”, “the others will shut it down” or “we’ve tried that before”. All that mindset is good for is killing potential ideas.

Instead, think in the shape of a diamond. Brainstorm and voice ALL suggestions. When you have enough alternatives, you can narrow it down to find the best ideas.

With this approach you might end up with different or better final ideas because you are open, and opportunity orientated.

Look for opportunities instead of limiting yourself.
