How to Gain Inspiration for New Ideas During an Allhands Meeting

Your business needs new and innovative ideas all the time, so how can you make sure you get them? One way to do this is to schedule your regular allhands meetings in a different way, as that’s when most people come up with their best ideas. However, they don’t always present these at the meeting — which means they might not get shared with the team at all. Here’s how to gain inspiration for new ideas during an allhands meeting so that everyone can benefit from new perspectives and fresh ideas.

The Opening Phase

If you're looking for inspiration, a great way to start is with opening phase exercises. One exercise could be asking live multiple choice questions. They can be both work-related and related to people's personal lives. Also, they are designed to get everyone out of their comfort zones by introducing them to new and interesting live concepts. Here are three questions below:

  • What would you do if you were the CEO of your company?

  • What kind of person are you when it comes to stress? (give people two options from which to choose (i.e., type A or type B personality))

  • What is your dream vacation destination?

What should a question look like?

A live multiple choice exercise can be used in two ways: use either a random or a work-related subject.
For example: "What superpower would you choose?" A. flying B. breathing under water C. invisibility when you want to be invisible D. being able to control water

Or: "What do you like most about your job?" Come up with answers related to whatever jobs people are in, for example: A. interacting with other people B. figuring out how to solve problems C. contributing to something that is greater than yourself, in order to make the world a better place
