A warm up activity that encourages teams to discuss their Hopes & Concerns
Communicating openly in a safe environment
At the beginning of a project
Best run at the start of a workshop or period of work.
To hope and to be concerned are both emotive phrases that imply a degree of vulnerability. Framing the categories in this way can lead to participants opening up more than usual. We find it uplifting to connect with team mates over shared concerns and aspirations.
This session can generate a lot of actions, allow time to assess these as a team.
