According to the NeuroLeadership Institute, there are four conditions that can help facilitate more insights
Having a quiet mind; being internally focused; thinking slightly positive; not thinking about the problem directly
Some of the things you can do to create these conditions:

Do more of: Asking one question at a time; Lift up the level of vision and planning.
Being internally focused

Do more of: Asking for the ideas of others first; Allow space for reflection.
Thinking slightly positive

Do more of: Asking how questions; Being non-judgmental and more encouraging.
Not thinking about the problem directly
Do less of: Focusing hard on the problem; Asking about what has been done so far.
Do more of: Focusing lightly on possible solutions; Considering options for moving forward.
