Brainstorming is a great way to generate ideas. And it’s not only for writing papers or giving presentations, it’s great for meetings. If you have a meeting waiting right around the corner and you were thinking about winging it, reconsider. Lifehacker advises not to brainstorm during meetings, but instead be the golden employee and come prepared with ideas that are ready to be presented. Avoid wasting time gathering up ideas when you could be working as a team to build on the different ideas and knock out the bad ones. Another benefit to brainstorming is that it puts your team ahead of the game and results in quick and short meetings. The next time you have a meeting, instead of checking your Twitter five minutes before, pull out a sheet of paper and brainstorm great ways to identify and accomplish goals.
