What Is a Brainstorming Session?

A brainstorming session is a group activity where team members exchange ideas to find the best solution to a specific problem. 

It’s a creativity technique used to explore different perspectives, discover new ideas, spark innovation, and promote teamwork.

Successful teams have been relying on it for generations. Thanks to technology, remote teams can now apply it in a virtual environment and recreate the feeling of an office room. 

Share ideas in a fun and productive way and discover new options to move forward.

In order to do a brainstorm, you should do the following:

  1. Define the problem statement and objective.
  2. Share context before the session for preparation.
  3. Guide the discussion with a clear agenda and deadline.
  4. Summarize the findings and take relevant actions.

For brainstorming sessions to be as effective as possible, you should create an atmosphere where everyone can share their ideas without fearing judgment. 

With that in mind, it’s important to push everyone to generate as many ideas as possible – regardless of how crazy they are! Avoid censoring or criticizing ideas and instead evolve on existing ideas. 

Here’s how to do that:

  1. Set up a brainstorming session in a meeting room and invite teammates to join.
  2. Share your screen or open an interactive whiteboard to start sharing ideas.
  3. Connect any app or document that can help make the brainstorming more effective.

Why are brainstorming sessions Important for Your Team?

When you get stuck in stale thinking patterns, it can be challenging to get out of that rut and find solutions. The more you try to get out of your head, the deeper you may fall down the rabbit hole – sometimes unable to see a solution staring right at you.

That’s why teamwork is essential. After all, two heads are better than one. Gather your colleagues, and you’ll get the creative juices flowing in no time.

That’s the core purpose of brainstorming: it allows teammates to get their minds together and freely propose multiple, diverse ideas. It encourages open communication and collaboration, improves critical thinking, and helps unlock the team’s creative talents.

Whether you’re working on new product designs, developing an app, or looking for new ways to improve marketing, a brainstorming session is your way to go. It can inspire you to think outside the box and complete every project with flying colors. 

But if you’re using old conferencing solutions as a remote worker, brainstorming sessions won’t as engaging as they could be. 

With Kosy, on the other hand, you can have them every day!
