What are some best practices for leading a brainstorm around branding or rebranding?

It depends on the stage of the process and what you intend to accomplish. In general, prepare material beforehand including, customer feedback, a competitive audit, company values, and existing brand artifacts. Work with leaders from different parts of the company, especially marketing, product, design, as well as the CEO to define the attributes you think the brand should convey.
