Generating ideas in idea boards

Building better products: Idea boards at work

Having a pool of ideas in front of you is great for rattling up your creative side.

Generating ideas is hard enough, especially in a group setting, but when an organizational system isn’t put in place, it can become time consuming and useless.

Including idea boards to your workflow is beneficial because they can fit to any use case and can be used in many different ways. No matter the purpose, they are meant for keeping all ideas in one centralized place so everyone can have access to all necessary information.

With Great Leadership Comes Great Responsibility

The 6 Leadership Styles Needed for a Productive Team

It is no easy task becoming a leader of a group. Depending on the situation, a leader with certain qualities must know what to do to benefit the entire team. For example, a leader that mainly focuses on building team spirit will probably not be able to handle crisis situations, and vice versa.

When it comes to building healthy and productive modern teams, the 6 Emotional Leadership styles are great to keep in mind, especially when using the correct tools in Conceptboard. In the book Primal Leadership, Daniel Goleman, Richard Boyatzis, and Annie McKee show that great leadership has a direct correlation with emotions, meaning strong leaders can read the emotions of the team and change their leadership styles accordingly.
