This article from Inc tells how David and Tom Kelley compare creative thinking and risk taking to karaoke.  Tom says, “I am going to get up and sing in front of my friends.  I’m willing to take this big risk because you’re going to get up and sing next.  We’re all in this together…In the karaoke room, a colossal failure is at least as much fun as something that is really good.”  They encourage “rewarding people for trying new things, and being tolerant of failure” in order to create an accepting environment that breeds creativity and ideas.  This article also includes exercises to enhance creative brainstorming with your team.
