Get to know each other’s values and have a better life
This exercise can strengthen the relationship between partners, family members, colleagues and friends.
Lay out a set of Dialoogle picture cards in front of you.
All participants choose three picture cards, each representing or symbolising an important personal value. It is okay that participants spend some time finding their cards. Their selections are personal and should make sense to the individual – not necessarily to others.
Now participants take turns presenting their cards one at a time to the others. They explain why they have chosen each card and what it symbolises. It is important that each participant is heard, and that the group reflects on what is being said.
The participants place their cards in front of them when they have presented them. When all participants have presented their cards, explore the individual values by asking questions about the chosen images.
After discussing the values, participants choose three new picture cards that reflect how their personal values match their current way of life.
Once again, it is important that everybody reflects on what is being said before discussing how others can contribute and assist them in achieving a better life.
It is a good thing to remind oneself of the important things in life once in a while. You can download your selection of picture cards to your mobile phone and take a look at them before you have to make significant decisions.
