One of my close friends and outstanding leadership colleagues has created a new, interactive leadership lab. He’s remodeled a house into an inspired space reserved for teams and leaders to pursue creative thinking.

The leadership lab has sleek, custom working tables that can expand or contract based on team size. Flat-screen monitors, whiteboards, an outdoor picnic table, and a large deck– all designed for solution discussions, brainstorming, and breakthrough ideas.


  1. When was the last time you pulled together some key people to brainstorm new ideas?
  2. Where do you feel stuck as an organization?
  3. How can you set up a brainstorming session to allow great ideas to come to the surface?
  4. How can you challenge the status quo– let go of the egos and bust through creative thinking?

Final reminder: Actress Katharine Hepburn remarked, “If you obey all the rules, you miss all of the fun”.

Here’s to your creativity and brainstorming!
