Context: I work in an IT Company and have recently been promoted from developer to a management position. I am managing a team of developers with really creative minds. We hold team meetings weekly to discuss possible solutions to different development tasks. Everybody gives many ideas and it's always a very communicative session.
I usually think out of the box and always analyze every solution provided. Most of the unorthodox solutions always have some shortcomings. When I was a developer, pointing out issues to the management in the meeting was a habit of mine and almost everybody expected me to find some issue with every idea.
Problem: Now that I am at a senior position, I can't afford putting down every idea presented by someone, fearing people might stop speaking out confidently. I would like to know what methods can I use to decline ideas without making them lose confidence?
PS. Sorry if this is in the wrong stack section, I couldn't think of a better site to discuss this.
