Creative Workshop Exercise: Enhancing Group Communication and Connection

Created By Professor Ilona Boniwell

These cards have been created by Professor Ilona Boniwell who says

'Hex cards are a research-based tool that combines images, words, and symbols to enable learning, creative collaboration and shared action. Through narratives that explore deeper meaning, they help accelerate insights and learning.'

Suggested Uses for Hex Cards

Highlighting Learning: At the end of the session people pick cards to represent their learning, highlight moment or similar and then lay them down in turn to create a connected story of the learning of the session

Story Telling: People select cards they believe hold key elements to the 'story' of the organisation, then future, the incidence or similar. Then take turns to add their card to co-create the group story.

Icebreaker: Everyone picks a couple of cards that speak to them. Then share in pairs the stories behind their choice, what those images or words meant to them.

Identifying Values: People pick the cards that best reflect what is important to them. They share in the group, and the group helps identify the values inherent in what they are saying. People add their cards, or start a new values 'cluster'.

Visions of the future: Select words and images that reflect the desired image of the individual or group, to make the dream visible and shareable.
