Inspiration - A few ideas to get you started
The simplicity of the our cards makes them incredibly flexible, so there are a host of ways they can be used. To get you started, here are a few exercises to try out. We love to hear about all the different ways the Strengths cards and the Good Question cards are being used, so let us know if there’s an exercise that works well for you.
Strengths Card Exercises
Exercise 1: Comparing life domains
Identify the strengths you use in different parts of your life and reflect on how to make even more of them.
Exercise type: Individual
Card side: Words
Time: 30 mins
Exercise 2: Strengths 360
Good Question Card Exercises
Exercise 1: Personal Reflection
Use this activity to focus on the good things in life.
At the end of each day, take one card at random and reflect on your answer to the question. You might like to write down your reflections in a notebook and refer back to them at a later date.
Tip: You could use a version of this activity within a team. Choose a card at random each day, or each week, and put it up on the wall. Ask everyone to write their reflections on a sticky note and put them around the question.
Exercise 2: Moving Toward Change
Try this exercise when you’re coaching or managing someone who wants to make a change.
Take cards 25 to 48 and arrange them into the 3 colour-coded families.
Ask the person to choose 3 questions from each family and answer each in turn, moving from the lowest numbered card through to the highest.
After each set of 3 questions, ask them whether there’s anything they want to be doing differently, based on their responses. Encourage them to create an action plan.
