Co-creation rules of engagement

  • Ensure everyone contributes. All voices should be heard regardless of experience, background and role.
  • Aim for quantity over quality. The goal is to generate a lot of ideas — prioritization and viability come later.
  • Think blue sky. Move beyond the perceived limitations of your organization and environment.
  • Promote active listening. When other people are talking, take notes and jot down questions.
  • Build on each other’s ideas rather than knocking them down. Instead of saying ‘no’ try ‘yes, and…’.
  • Share ideas in a visual and engaging way: drawing, acting, building… any action that motivates people to move and try new things.
  • Turn on FOCUS mode. Discourage the use of phones and computers. Respect the time people have blocked and be present.
  • Use simple visuals to transform your space. Posters, easel boards and sticky notes are low-cost ways to create a friendly and informal environment.
