Many of us, I'm sure, have attended courses and training that required us to brainstorm a solution or exercise. Brainstorming also plays a large part in achieving success in coaching as well. If you are looking for a fresh idea or approach, grab a pen and paper and set a timer for 5 or 8 minutes. Write down every idea or thought that comes to your mind about that particular issue. There is no dumb or silly idea, write them all down.
At the end of the time, you may find some of these ideas are impractical however you may find that perfect solution as well. Whilst you are motivated and energised from your brainstorming session, write yourself a little action plan about how you will go about implementing that solution.
