#4 Idea Stormers: How to Lead and Inspire Creative Breakthroughs

Idea Stormers: How to Lead and Inspire Creative Breakthroughs
Every organization needs a steady supply of fresh, relevant ideas, but traditional “brainstorming” is often ineffective. Ideation techniques, on the other hand, which use a rich palette of proven stimuli-rich, creative problem-solving methodologies, can generate a wide range of implementable options — not to mention true breakthroughs — for virtually any creative problem or business challenge.

Drawing on his work leading high-stakes ideation sessions at over 300 organizations, the author explains the how, what, and why of successful ideation processes and provides a framework for when and how to apply them. The featured creative problem-solving techniques include triggered brainwalking, the worst idea technique, question assumptions, problem redefinition, directed wishing, and many more.

As importantly, Idea Stormers includes real world stories that demonstrate how the creative problem-solving techniques were applied to solve a wide range of business challenges: from strategy to sales, marketing to culture change… and the creation of new products and services valued at over $3 billion.

#5 Lawyers as Peacemakers: Practicing Holistic, Problem-Solving Law by J. Kim Wright

Lawyers as Peacemakers: Practicing Holistic, Problem-Solving Law by J. Kim Wright
This is my favorite problem-solving book, because it addresses the biggest misconception that people have of lawyers: that they are untrustworthy, argumentative business people who are only after your money. In reality, the vast majority of lawyers joined the industry to help people. The legal system can be complicated, and what people don’t know can end up hurting them.

Apart from that, this book also touches on some new ways for lawyers to approach their practices, and it helps them refocus on achieving the best possible outcomes for their clients’ cases.

#6 Business Improv by Val Gee

Business Improv by Val Gee
As the marketing director of an employee training company, I tackle problem solving differently than other leaders. I see it as more of a preventative measure, because through education and proper training, employees should be able to solve a wider range of problems on their own. In this way, our office culture and business model focus heavily on the employee, working under the assumption that most roadblocks can be avoided at the bottom with the right training.

I like this book because it also focuses on the employee. It’s a fun and engaging way to empower your workforce and give them the confidence to make informed decisions that help your company run smoother on a daily basis.
