If you're in a leadership role and struggle to get big ideas from your team, I recommend you try this approach and observe what happens (if you do and wanna share your story, please send us an e-mail).
Just be aware you have to GENUINELY want to hear the answer and be willing to dig as deep as possible. The question is:
“What's the thing you believe we should be doing that we're not doing?”
I love this question for two simple reasons:
1: People on the front lines (analysts, assistants, coordinators) have great clues on the problems and potential solutions. But they're either unsure how to prove it or feel reluctant to bring it to the leadership.
On the other hand, companies hire me to help them figure out where the problem is and what to do about it asap. Interestingly, they always have at least 50% - or more - of the answer.
This question helps me unveil what that is exactly.
2: It helps me understand the gap between what each person on the team judges as the most important thing we lack (as well as putting my own judgment in perspective).
Usually, there are significant differences between the answers from Marketing, Product, and Sales teams. Sometimes they say the same things using different words, which is a great sign they're aligned.
I don't take the answers as gospel, of course. Instead, it serves as a compass for me to understand if I'm heading in the right direction.
With the answers, you can now investigate further and bring the answers for debate before choosing in which baskets you'll put your eggs.
