Ever struggle with getting your group to decide? These cards can help. Designed to make group decision-making easier – online, around a table, or in an auditorium.
This digital set of cards helps groups say YES, NO, MAYBE, or ask a QUESTION. Simply send your participants the cards to print, and then have people show their cards when you facilitate the conversation.
WE OFTEN STRUGGLE TO DECIDE TOGETHER
Frustrated by your team? You are not alone! Most groups have trouble taking decisions. While some of us like to keep our options open, many are stressed by stagnant, vague, or endless issues. Given the anxiety in the wider world, you can help your group by making your own area more clear. Sometimes it is as simple as saying YES or NO, but often the issues have remained open because they are complex or sticky or require dialogue – that’s when these cards can help.
The first question is what you and your group really need on this topic. Is it just a decision? Or do you need clarity? Consensus? Commitment? Is it something that can be answered with YES or NO? Or is it something that needs to be taken apart, explored, and understood?
SPEED & DEPTH
Pushing for a quick decision can erode engagement, while discussing things ad infinitum can be exhausting. The best way to strike the balance is to ask the group – they know when it is too fast/slow or light/deep. You may have another opinion, but it is up to you to work with the people to reach the desired outcome.
Whether you are in a room, on screen, or on stage, it is hard to know what your audience is thinking. These cards make everyone’s opinion visible. Simply ask people to hold up a card to show their view. Based on the cards held up, you can move on or dive into an activity. The visual check-in helps you:
- Remove ambiguity
- Shape discussions
- Take decisions
