The Power of Personality Workshop

I'm a critical thinker so it's harder for me to come up and voice ideas off the bat but fear this makes me seem like I'm not a team player. How can I work around this?

A couple ways I've found that work for me is, when possible, to ask for the information in advance so you can mull it over and come prepared with questions. Or if you don't get things in advance of the meeting, to just say at some point during the conversation, "Can we do a follow-up in couple days? I'm really excited about this [topic] but want to chew on things so my ideas form." You won't get those all the time but working the clock can be a big help for me.

Personally I've found that timing is really key for this. For me, if a creative mentions something in the first round of internal work that I think would be awful for the brand, I tell them which ideas sound best to me and wait for the bad idea to come back up. Sometimes they kill the idea themselves. If they don't and it becomes a favorite, I start asking questions and they also then kill it themselves.
