Since the business launch, I have gotten a lot of questions...how is this different from what you did before? etc. My favorite response is, "That's top secret!" heh heh heh!
- Warn them what they are about to do is something they never have before - this scares them a little.
- Put them into a creative environment that is outside their comfort zone. (I call this creative waterboarding)
- Challenge them to solve a problem that (in their current roles) they have no control over.
- Watch them implode, then explode. Result? Amazing new solutions and ideas.
- Reward them with food.
