|Let’s put our heads together to solve this problem!|
“Let’s put our heads together to think of some good ideas for our new project!”
“Putting our heads together” means to “brainstorm” or think of new ideas or solutions with one or more people. Typically, when said in the office, it is a positive way to encourage people to come together as partners or as a group to tackle pressing issues (solving problems).
For instance, the group pictured in this post put their heads together to deliver a creative communication solution during a training program in Kottayam (see their results here).
Another related idiom could be “back to the drawing board,” which means to forget everything or get rid of what has been completed so far and start over with new ideas.
