  1. Overcome “Critical Thinking Bias” and Boost Your Collaborative Capability Donald J. Minnick, Ph.D. Interpersonal Skills Laboratory, LLC 281.923.1270

  2. Design for a New Wheelbarrow

  3. The Itemized Response Method of Responding to Ideas X “The stupidest Idea I’ve ever heard…” “The greatest Idea I’ve ever heard. I agree 100%....” Our typical “first response” To a new idea

  4. A Study of “Divergent Thinking” ……. Most people: 10-15 uses “GENIUS” level: 200+ uses 92% 65% 34% 12% What happened…???

  5. How Critical Are We..? Category of Individual- / + or neutral comments Secondary school teachers 25 / 1 College professors 22 / 1 Mid-level managers 18 / 1

  6. The Itemized Response Method of Responding to Ideas Sample Lead-Ins: “That’s a terrific thought!” “What I like about your idea is …” “That would be good because …” “What I find especially helpful in what you’re saying is…” “Stretching for The Pluses” • Probing for the pluses: • “What are your thoughts behind ….? • “What are the benefits that you see of … • “What would that do for us….?” X “The stupidest Idea I’ve ever heard…” “The greatest Idea I’ve ever heard. I agree 100%....” Our typical “first response” To a new idea

  7. The Itemized Response Method of Responding to Ideas Identify Your Concerns ….. invite suggestions to overcome your concerns “Stretching for The Pluses” • Sample Lead-Ins: • “What I’m concerned about is …” • “We have to deal with how to…” • “How could we overcome …” • “I wish we could also …” • “I think we need to further think through this part of things…” Identifying Your Concerns X “The stupidest Idea I’ve ever heard…” “The greatest Idea I’ve ever heard. I agree 100%....” Our typical “first response” To a new idea

  8. The Itemized Response Method of Responding to Ideas “Stretching for The Pluses” “Building” Identifying Your Concerns X X “The greatest Idea I’ve ever heard. I agree 100%....” “The stupidest Idea I’ve ever heard…” “Threshold of Acceptability” Our typical “first response” To a new idea • Building Make the original idea more useful by creatively exploring: • Modification; Additions / Expanded Applications Sample Lead-Ins: “Building on your idea, we could…” “Good point and we could also use that to…” “That idea triggered a thought for me. What if we…” “What your idea could do for us is….”

  9. Let’s give it a try……… …..Imagine any problem where there might be some significant value for collaboration…. 1. Gather your own ideas…. Make some notes to yourself about your idea…. 2. Discuss the problem with your group… being careful to use: “Stretching for the Pluses…” “Identifying your concerns…” “Building…” 3. After you’ve had some time to “solve” the problem….. we’ll hear some report outs and compare notes on our solutions….

  10. Design for a New Wheelbarrow

  11. Example “Builds” on the Wheelbarrow Design… • Good for going over rough terrain – bottom won’t drag • Can rig a trap door, drive right over the hole and fill it without having to dump it over • Make wheel rotate….easier to turn • Have double wheels (like the back of a tricycle) for stability • Have extendable handles and make it also serve as a work-out device • (chest and triceps)

  12. For organizations: (families, groups, teams, and companies…..) … that want to encourage creativity, innovation and involvement…. Eliciting what is “desirable” –CONTRIBUTING …. and capturing what is “desired” –THE QUALITY IDEA…. Sometimes it really is as simple as “language” …. …….just the way we talk to each other
