Become a Superhero

This exercise will help you become a role model for yourself and others.

  1. Choose four picture cards that symbolise your perception of each of these characteristics:
    a. Active and determined
    b. Talkative and open-minded
    c. Disciplined and correct
    d. Sincere and cooperative
  2. Place the four cards so that they form the four corners of a square.
  3. Point at the picture in the corner that best describe the way you deal with your (job) tasks.
  4. Decide which picture corner you would like to move towards when you are dealing with your (job) tasks –  in order to please your manager, your colleagues and yourself.
  5. Now choose three picture cards that symbolise what you will have to change in your daily behaviour in order to move closer to becoming a role model to yourself and others. Place them on top of the pictures in the three corners you do not want to move towards.
  6. Write down on a piece of paper what you need to start doing right away in order to come closer to becoming a role model. Place your action plan in the middle of the square.
  7. Take a photo of your set-up and keep it on your phone as a reminder to help you become the role model you want to be.

If you do this exercise in a group, tell each other which picture corner dominates your behaviour, and which one(s) that would help you become your individual role models. Ask each other questions, and give feedback. 



Innovation is discovering, developing and applying new ideas in known workflows and processes. Give innovation a boost with images.



90% of the brain’s sensory input comes from visual sources. Images start thought tracks in the brain. If they cross each other in new combinations, new ideas emerge.



Creativity unfolds when we use imagery and try to combine different and seemingly independent motifs with each other.
