We all suffer from a profound case of “Idea Surplus Disorder” at Filament — and we think that’s a good thing. Here are some of those ideas we’d like to share with you.



Use I like, I wish & I wonder to start meetings better

We've been kicking off our meetings lately with a simple exercise called "I like, I wish, I wonder" that helps participants share the things they'd like to get out of our day(s) together.  On a half-page card, we ask everyone in the room to complete these three prompts:

I'd like if we did ...

I wish we might ...

I wonder if we could ...

After everyone captures their thoughts on their cards, we go around the room and share -- often asking the person who volunteers first to select the next person to share.

It is a wonderful way to identify expected outcomes and amazing possibilities from a room full of people in about 15 minutes.

Give it a try to open your next meeting and let us know how it works for you!
