Unleashed: Where are you going?

 Are You Unleashed?

 The strategy and work session could always use more color.  Unleashed is the Oishii way of thinking about thinking. For us, Unleashed in a work session means using the mind productively, creating something tangible and useful. Unleashed means an open mind free from the clutter of judgements, cynicism and anger. Unleashed allows the shapes the unformed intuition and impulse into words. Go wild. Get unleashed…Where are you going?

Impromptu Innovation

 

 Inspiration often comes without a scheduled meeting.

Need to invigorate your work routine? Try crashing the office lunch table.  Greg Lindsay (greglindsay.org) has written extensively on workplace productivity and noted recently that researchers at the MIT Human Dynamics Laboratory concluded that workers who had chance conversations, unintentional meetings and casual office conversations were more productive than those who worked alone. Informal communications, as opposed to structured meetings, allows conversations, thoughts and ideas to flourish. In turn, these conversations can have a replication effect throughout the workplace and can foster “serendipity,” moments where ideas become action.

 

Now get up, and find someone to talk to!
