社會學家 威廉薩姆納 William Summer 提出「群體內偏好 In-group Favoritism」，認為人們天性會組成群體，並會偏愛與自己有共同點的人事物。這會導致大多數團隊會議很難跳脫原有框架，我建議大家練習兩個方法：
When I was leading a corporate innovation workshop, a supervisor asked me that everyone discussing proposals together at the meeting often found that some colleagues can always break through the framework, but most people still go in the existing framework Looking for the answer, it is difficult to break through the existing framework, what should I do?
Sociologist William Sumner proposed “In-group Favoritism”, who believes that people naturally form groups and prefer people and things that they have in common. This will make it difficult to break away from the original framework for most team meetings. I suggest you practice two methods:
The first method is to deliberately discuss with people with “different opinions”
On key issues, after convening a few original team members who are familiar with the field, you must also find a few people with different opinions to brainstorm. The specific method can be that you first use them within 3 minutes Briefly describe this topic, and then ask them to question this topic and raise the problems they see. At least 10 questions must be collected, and from these questions, select “You never thought about it” or “No one has ever thought about it.” Finally, we will find innovative ideas and solutions to overcome the challenges with the members of the team who are familiar with the field. If we do this, we can effectively listen to “negative” feedback and opinions, and rethink and rethink When defining problems, there are often new inspirations out of the box.
The second method is to deliberately learn from people who “do not understand” or from the “young generation”
Usually the opinion leaders of existing teams are experienced seniors, and the advantage of experienced seniors lies in their rich experience. At the same time, the potential crisis is that it is difficult to get out of the box because of too much experience. At this time, if we can learn from young people , Understand the perspectives of young people, and ask people who are unfamiliar with or do not understand your topic. If you do so, you can effectively stimulate the thinking of different generations, and you can also rethink the hidden problems that are too familiar and overlooked. There will be new inspirations out of the box.
So, why can’t we get out of the framework? Simply put, if you want to think beyond the framework, you must deliberately look for people with “different views” and learn from the younger generation or unfamiliar people.
Good morning, everyone, I encourage everyone to practice thinking that breaks the framework more often, so that you can cultivate your own creative and new thinking ability.
