Many years ago I saw an interesting photograph in a weekly magazine.
I’ve tried to recreate it (as you can see, I’m not Picasso), because I think it could be very useful for a meeting with colleagues or as an item for a teambuilding. Especially when you’re facing great challenges (with your team).
How can we jump, climb, … over the wall?
Here are some questions & thoughts, you can start with:
Why do we want to be on the other side of the wall? (always start with why? – read Yves Deploiges comment from earlier this week)
Do we have to be on the otherside of the wall?
What are the advantages of being on the other side?
If I jump, you’ll be over the wall, but I’m still here!
o Alone on this side of the wall: do I want this?
o Am I willing to jump for you and stay on this side of the wall? Am I prepared to do this for a colleague?
o Why the two of us? Maybe there are “better” ones to jump over the wall…
– Is this the place to “conquer” the wall? Maybe we should look further on…? Maybe there’s a hole somewhere…?
– Do we have to jump? Are there no other possibilities?
o Is there another way to use the tools instead of making a bounce/skip/hop?
o Maybe an other technique brings both of us on the other side…? (How?)
– When is the best time to jump? (Remember, timing is everything!)
Get inspired and success!
