1. Mind Map template

The best brainstorming sessions are full of bold ideas and free-flowing conversations — with just enough structure to keep people on track. 

That’s where this Mind Map template comes in. Put your central concept in the middle and use branches to explore related ideas and themes. You’ll have the flexibility to think freely while still maintaining focus on your core idea.

2. Brainwriting template

Brainwriting is a brainstorming technique where participants use a specified amount of quiet time to independently jot down their ideas before sharing them with the broader team.

Research from Stanford University found that people are most creative when they work on their own. So, brainwriting can often yield more ideas (and better ones) than the typical rapid-fire, shout-out-suggestions-as-they-come-to-you style.

Plus, this Brainwriting template’s quieter and more intentional approach allows space for all employees to meaningfully contribute — not just your most extroverted ones.

5. Kanban Framework template

A Kanban board is a simple and intuitive way to track the progress of your work. Each task gets a card, which moves between columns to indicate its status. It’s highly flexible, and the Miro board examples below show how this framework can be applied to different types of work, from sales outreach to daily to-dos. 

While the Kanban Framework template can keep your team on track, it’s also a valuable resource to share with other cross-functional teams and stakeholders, so they can get visibility into your work.

6. Quick retrospective template

During a retrospective, you and your team look back on a previous sprint or project to identify your successes, failures, and ways you can improve. 

While there are plenty of popular retrospective techniques, this quick retrospective template provides a simple framework for your reflection. During your candid conversation, you’ll place sticky notes into four quadrants: 

  • Continue: What helped you move forward?
  • Stop: What held you back?
  • Invent: How could you do things differently?
  • Act: What should you do next?
