What is a Debate Club session?
Discover stronger ideas by challenging each other.
Vigorous, honest debate has its place in a healthy creative process. This recipe is for teams that already have a strong sense of shared purpose and trust.
How do you run the Debate Club session?
Use the following sequence of tactics:
1. Fame vs Shame
Encourage subjective judgements and good-natured debate.
2. Crazy Eights
Generate lots of ideas. Pick one to take forward using Invest Your PipCoins.
Two groups; one focus on positives with Like, Wish, Wonder, one look for problems with Concerns, Confusions, Conflicts. Then debate your idea.
4. Like/Not Like
Refine your idea through comparison.
Confront questions like “why should anyone care?” before you get too comfortable.
6. Angels and Demons
Have a vigorous dialogue about the forces that might cause failure or success.
