This exercise is helpful when you are developing the structure of your meetings, talks or performance reviews.
Spread out the Dialoogle picture cards.
Ask the participants to pair up, preferably with someone they don’t know very well.
One person in each pair chooses two cards. One should illustrate an experience from a meeting, project, or performance review that was particularly productive, useful or interesting. The other card should illustrate something that could inspire the person to change something at the next meeting, project, or performance review.
Ask each pair to form groups of four with another pair and tell each other about their chosen picture cards.
Ask the groups to choose one or two cards (depending on time constraints and the number of participants) to present to the whole group.
Have all the participants pick out the best ideas and rate them (1st choice, 2nd choice…)
At the next meeting, project, or performance review, you place the card representing the no. 1 idea in the centre of the table. This picture card will serve as a catalyst for turning the idea into a good habit.
In small groups of 2-3 persons, you can ask the participants to begin by doing the exercise by themselves.
