Timing: Up to 60 min (depends on number of people)
Download & print Positive Change Canvas from ivopeksens.com; have sharpies or pens for participants. Can be used individually or in larger group of people.
Make the group sit in a circle, hand out printed canvas and a sharpie/pen to everyone. Remind everyone to write legibly. Set timer to 5 min and start with STEP 1. After 5 min, rotate canvases clockwise and set timer to 4 min and proceed with STEP 2. Remind that STEP 2 is based on content in STEP 1. After 4 min, rotate canvases clockwise and set timer to 3 min and proceed with STEP 3. As before, remind that STEP 3 is based on content in STEP 2. After 3 min make sure author receives back his canvas which now should contain content in every step. Now give people few minutes to review their content and ask someone to share. Do so with few people.
The main point is that other people look at your positive stuff and propose improvements on top of that. The shifted perspective does miracles! Try! 🙂
