HOW TO SURVIVE A WORK BRAINSTORM

  1. Say all of your ideas out loud. Be judged.
  2. Keep your ideas to yourself. Implode.
  3. Make a suggestion based on someone else's idea. Um, hello. He just said that.
  4. Add "Mhm" and "Sounds good" where appropriate. Die slowly.
  5. Inception your idea into the team leader's mind while she's sleepi- I mean, leading a brainstorm.
  6. Wait for the perfect moment to say your best, crafted-by-elves, forged-in-gold idea. Congrats, you're the hero.
