GENERATING IDEAS, INPUTS, SOLUTIONS
TO ACHIEVE NEW HEIGHTS OF INSPIRATION AND CREATIVITY



Get other people's inputs in order to go beyond your thinking or perspective. Using models and examples of how things have been done well is a key principle of creating success.  Accessing the wisdom of another (who is, indeed, wise, as opposed to just well-meaning and fairly informed) is another key.
                        
                        Networking For Advice - Asking advice of others rather than seeking anything
                             directly from them.  People tend to "enroll" themselves in contributing further to

                             BusinessWorkResources.)
