Flow Conversation Cue Cards

Because conversations at work don’t always flow easily

The secret to successful teams and organisations is how people treat each other, that is, the culture. Culture is created through quality relationships, which are forged through healthy conversations.

It’s nothing new that leaders must balance demands and distribute their time between themselves and their teams. But what is new is the increased expectation to nurture quality relationships and connections. 

But sometimes, conversations at work just don’t flow. FLOW Conversation Cue Cards stimulate meaningful discussion between leaders and individuals, team leaders and team members, colleagues, coaches and coachees, and more.

Based on our Better Questions Approach, our engaging conversation cards and tools feature open questions that encourage people to raise issues (safely), inspiring open thinking and trusted conversations. 

Harnessing the power of asking open questions:

  • Highlights that the purpose of your meeting is different.
  • Helps individuals set the conversation’s agenda.
  • And sends a clear signal that they are at the centre of the discussion. 

Importantly, these easy-to-use cards put employee and team experience at the core and give managers the confidence to start meaningful conversations that lead to practical outcomes.

Try FLOW Conversation Cue Cards today and see the difference they can make in your team’s communication and connection!

The Power of FLOW

Developed in collaboration with Ricky Nowak, FLOW Conversation Cue Cards capture 20 years of expertise and research. Like flashcards, FLOW Cards help individuals, leaders, and teams explore how we lead others (WE) and manage ourselves (ME).

But curating our research down to precisely two decks of 48 cards is what makes FLOW so powerful. Individuals decide which cards are relevant and/or important at any given time. And the cards can be used over and over again – in multiple ways – as situations and contexts change.

1 pack, 2 topics, 8 categories, 3 groups…countless conversations.​

How do FLOW Cards facilitate meaningful conversations for individuals, leaders and teams?

Successful leadership requires active listening, healthy conversations and feedback.

Designed to focus the discussion, FLOW cards work equally well in groups or one-on-one and are ideal for anyone who leads conversations. For example, leaders and individuals who want to engage in self-reflection. Teams building relationships and working through challenges. Even professional, corporate, and executive coaches.

Use FLOW Conversation Cue Cards to:

  • Harness individual strengths to boost productivity and engagement.
  • Understand specific issues and challenges, and build outcomes.
  • Identify required resources and collaborative partnerships to improve performance.

Today's employees want a manager who is invested in their personal and professional development. They want frequent feedback - and opportunities to do more of what they do best. They want to consistently grow as they pursue a compelling purpose.

As humans working in a digital world, hands-on tools provide a valuable alternative to screen time.

Whether together or online, when participants have physical tools to share, hold up, layout and shuffle, conversations, engagement and collaboration will flourish. That's why we recommend everyone has (or has access to) their own physical deck of FLOW cards.



We work in a world of countless apps and digital whiteboards.

Available with bulk orders (50+ packs) only, corporate users receive a complimentary deck of FLOW 'drag and drop image' cards (PNG files). Upload these cards to support your scaled roll-out of FLOW and facilitate stimulating online meetings and conversations with remote workers. Or ask us about the (beta) FLOW MS Teams app.
