ALIEN Thinking (with Cyril Bouquet)

|

If you want to generate ideas like no one else, you need to think like no one else. You need to employ ALIEN thinking – thinking unlike anyone around you. It’s easy to slip into ruts and assumptions, especially when confronted with the pressures of daily work. However, by employing a few well-tested techniques, you can elevate above the fray and connect dots that others may not even see.

In this episode, Cyril Bouquet is here to share the core principles of ALIEN thinking and to help us learn how to approach our projects and problems through a new lens.
