3 Tips to use music in your Virtual Brainstorm

  • SOLO THINKING TIME: Give everyone a prompt, and then 3-5 minutes to write answers on their own. Then share answers one by one. 
  • DANCE PARTY: Get your virtual meeting started off right with 1 minute of boogying. 
  • Even the stick-in-the-mud types that stay seated will experience a little jolt of energy. 
  • VIRTUAL WAR ROOM: Rather than a focused meeting, get people together to do work together in a shared virtual room. Play music while everyone works. Have an interesting idea or question? Speak up and lower the music. Otherwise everyone just groove side-by-side.
