About This Product
What could be simpler than using a cartoon to generate energy and involvement and get performance improvement efforts rolling? This is a complete facilitation toolkit designed to involve and engage, including a variety of support materials, ideas for facilitation, powerpoint images, and forms.
Square Wheels® is a metaphor about how people and organizations perform -- The illustration is about things that do not work smoothly and about people, ideas and processes. Round Wheels are already in the wagon!
Show the illustration, ask for individual thinking then let tables of 5 to 6 people discuss their ideas. It works like an institutional Rorschach (inkblot) Test -- different people see things differently and this generates a useful discussion of issues and opportunities.
It supports the diversity of thinking styles and helps people start talking about things relevant to their working environment quickly and powerfully.
This bundle has everything you need to facilitate an engaging, memorable and successful workshop of 30 minutes to a full day. Includes handouts and worksheet masters. One time cost.

“Absolutely brilliant. I did a new staff induction and ended up with fifteen minutes to kill so I put up Square Wheels. No preparation - very little introduction - very little explanation. I put it up and simply said - what do you see happening here. I was amazed by the amount of discussion it actually generated and was sorry that we had to cut it short. Ten out of Ten.” Gordon P. UK Consultant
"Square Wheels rolled this afternoon. It was a smashing success. I am using it as a way to introduce some change management concepts and strategies." Alanna Clutter, Trainer
