FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
QUESTION: What is a Peer Power Think Tank?
A think tank is a brainstorming process to help look at an idea from a variety of angles, thought processes, and experiential lenses. It brings a group of people - often from very different walks-of-life, and with a variety of life experiences - together to explore and examine how an idea can be shaped and what problems might be encountered. Brainstorming allows for ideas to be developed in depth in a short period of time.
QUESTION: How will the “Think Tank” be structured?
The day will comprise of a blend of large and small group activities; however the majority of time will be spent in 2 small 4-person brainstorming groups (participants will differ in each go around).
Each group of 4 will have 1.75 hour to listen to and brainstorm each other’s ideas (5 minutes to present idea / ask and 20 minutes to brainstorm; then next person, and so on). This will be done 4 times within each group; once for each participant.
Throughout the day their will be opportunities for networking and one on one brainstorming / feedback on your idea as well during breaks, group feedback sessions, and wrap up activities.
QUESTION: I’m scared to present my idea to the group. What if they aren’t supportive?
Group guidelines, confidentiality agreements, and brainstorming best practices will be established and agreed upon before we dig into the actual work of the day. These will establish a variety of means by which you can frame your positive comments and ask questions those critical questions that probe into ideas and build a stronger foundation for growth.
