Briefingcards are images that help people to articulate their ideas, opinions and feelings in an intuitive manner. One on one or in a group you challenge people to select pictures which correspond with what they wish to talk about. Once the images have been selected you will ask the participant to explain his or her choice. Briefingcards are used by trainers, (career)coaches, managers, designers, teachers, psychologists and sales staff.

Briefingcards offer inspiration and are a proven tool to help people to new ideas or in an appealing way put into words what they want to say.

Selecting images stimulates the associative ability. This means that users of briefing cards are triggered to give original, authentic comments:

  • imagine the dream job during career advice
  • name strengths and weaknesses during coaching sessions
  • show what you have in mind (or not) in the design of spaces and/or products
  • create an original way of introduction during meetings and training sessions
  • make it clear what’s good and what could be bettered in the collaboration within teams
  • identify the sore spot in organizational development and change

The use of the briefing cards appeals to both the visual imagination (predominantly right brain) as well as language skills (mostly left brain). As a result, the cooperation between the two halves of the brain is stimulated.
