The Activity

Participants represent the Managers of a small organisation. They are about to review some ideas put forward by staff on how to improve wellbeing in the organisation.

Each person receives a set of 20 Cards. 10 are Statement Cards and contain a view, from a member of staff, for improving wellbeing, along with a counter view from another member. Their task is to decide who they agree with most on each card. There are also 10 Statistics Cards, each of which contains information from on a recent, national survey. Participants must decide the which is the correct result from a number of possible options.

Participants work through the cards first as individuals, noting their own personal views. They are then put into teams (in breakout rooms) and work through the cards as a team, noting down the team view. Where they have differing views they try to reach consensus.

Finally teams, as managers, choose five of the Statement Cards that they think are the most realistic, affordable and effective initiatives for their staff and the organisation to embrace.

Together, the cards raise a greater awareness of the concept of wellbeing and some of the actions that can be taken to build wellbeing.

Specifically designed for virtual training, it is straightforward to use and the Trainer's Notes provide helpful tips on how to run a virtual session.

Trainer's Role

  • Introduce the topic, and explain how the session will run and the overall timing.
  • Explain that participants will shortly all receive a set of 20 Cards and a Record Sheet. All they have to do is work through the cards, one by one, and decide what to do. 10 cards are Statement Cards, with the thoughts of two people on each. Participants decide which person they most agree with and note it down on their Record Sheet. The other 10 cards
    are Statistics Cards, with information from a recent, national survey.
    Participants decide which is the correct result from a number of
    options. Allow 20 minutes.
  • Now put people into teams, in breakout rooms, and ask teams to review the cards to reach consensus. Allow 20 minutes.
  • When time is up, ask each team (as managers of their small organisation), to choose FIVE of the Statement Cards which they think will be the most effective and affordable to use as wellbeing initiatives.
  • Bring everyone back into plenary session for a Debrief - guidance supplied in the Trainers' Notes.
