For the last twenty five years I've worked with groups and teams all over the world. From boardrooms in the financial services district, to hospitals, to major international headquarters, and South American jungles. What I've noticed, regardless of culture, is that pictures get conversation and thoughts flowing more quickly than anything else.
The Conversation Sparker Cards(TM) have stemmed these roots. Over the last ten years in my work as a Certified Professional Coach I've introduced many different visual card decks into the work I've done with teams and groups. At Potentials Realized we are now excited to offer our own Visual Deck - the Conversation Sparker Cards. We know that the images will spark a number of ideas, and move with you through a number of conversations.
Conversation Sparker Cards(TM) have been created by Jennifer Britton of Potentials Realized. Each deck includes a 70 card post card sized photos(3.75 5.75 inch) - 48 color photos and 22 with provoking questions such as "What's your Vision?".
The cards come in a plastic casing, designed to be portable and small enough to carry with all of your other meeting, or presentation gear.
Where Conversation Sparker Cards can be useful:
At team meetings - Select a question card and hear from others at the table
During a retreat or offsite. The visual cards can prompt short soundbites or hours of conversation
During a training program. The cards provoke conversation and can also be used to encourage dialogue between learners about their insights.
During a coaching conversation - Coaches will enjoy bringing this into their individual, team or group coaching conversations
When you purchase one of the decks you will be able to download an accompanying booklet with ideas on how to use the cards.
