Along with my creative picture cards, my facilitation kit would be incomplete without my box of objects. I just love to see the look on people’s faces when I ask them to pick an object and then use that object to describe whatever it is that I want to explore.
By tapping into the brain’s power of non-linear thinking, we unleash chains of thought that we would not have access to via traditional linear thinking. It is such a valuable exercise that people sometimes even ask if they can take the objects they picked home.
Following my DIY tendencies, I have gathered my box of objects myself. Using a kitchen plastic tub, I collected many small items that were spread around my place, such as the unused birthday champagne candle in the picture. Then I added a few more that I found would add colour to the mix – and voilà!
