Cutting Edge’s resident brainiac, Sam likes to keep his mind agile by consuming walnuts. Dion is a fan of protein smoothies and exercise. Casey uses giant post-it notes for wild ideas while Steve likes having a whiteboard in his bathroom. At a brainstorming meeting, Marcus has everyone trying “brain cages” to stimulate their thinking. Casey and Steve dream up a new shoe idea that will enable hiking, jumping, and swimming – ideal for triathletes. Sam and Dion favor mind mapping for creative work and Dion leads a mind mapping activity with the Cutting Edge staff as a team-building exercise. Openness, honesty, and lack of judgment are conducive to positive group brainstorming sessions (though Sam feels he doesn’t need group sessions – he can do it effectively by himself).Please note: These videos are designed to provoke discussion and response. They are fast-paced, short, character-driven, TV-style comedies that take a new approach to reaching today's learners. By laughing, discussing, sharing outrage, and reacting to the behaviors on screen, we can use the resulting feelings and thoughts to develop a clearer shared view of how we want our teams to behave and to better manage these types of situations. These programs partner well with the "Switch On" and/or "Workplace Excellence" series, also by Seven Dimensions.This program does not include a quiz. To achieve a completed status in the learning management system, you must view the video in its entirety.
