Quick Case Study
For this small team, choosing a card as a conversation starter helped them step out of their routine, creating a safe space to ask new and different questions and build stronger relationships with their peers.
“As we all spoke, we learnt a lot about how different people reflect on themselves. For example, some of us downplayed our skills while others were more confident.
Sharing our experiences allowed for a sense of healthy vulnerability into opening up about something. We each spoke about different aspects of innovative thinking, including personal innovation, leadership within a professional relationship, and teamwork.
Interestingly, while we all thought we would only speak for a few minutes, we ended up taking at least 10 minutes each to answer all four questions on the card. And while using the cards with people I knew made the process easier, it could be adapted quite easily for talking to strangers and silo-busting.
Collectively, we found what matters most was diversity, energy, being present, and listening.”
