Match your expectations before you start the coaching, supervision or counselling session.
Lay out the Dialoogle picture cards in front of you.
Choose a picture card each, representing the most important thing you hope to gain from the session.
Explain your reason for choosing that particular card.
Next, choose another picture card each, symbolising what you would like to contribute to the session.
Explain your reason for choosing that particular picture card.
Place the cards on the table as reminders of the aim and values you have established as being important to the session.
If you have more than one session planned, you may choose to discuss the picture cards in each session: Do the images still represent what you hope to gain from the sessions? Should we choose new images? Why?
Repeat the process if the need to choose new cards arises.
The questions can be varied, see Helpful Questions.
