Additional Info

  • Hours: 1h - 3h
  • Participants: 6-10
  • Methodology: Virtual or Face to Face
  • Objectives:

    Facilitate a cultural exchange between people from different places.

  • Materials:

    a PC with webcam or similar device for online collaboration.

  • Procedure:
    • In this activity participants react to three professionalism statements by jotting down short responses on sticky notes. Note that this format will work with a variety of topics - simply write statements that support the topic.

    • The facilitator sets aside three wall spaces for the notes to be posted—one area for each statement.

    • After the notes are posted, participants are divided into three teams, one for each grouping.

    • Each team then combines, synthesizes, rearranges, and/or groups their notes. It is each team’s job to draw three to five conclusions based on the notes. At the facilitator’s signal, each team reports their conclusions.

    Below are sample statements that you can use:

    • As a professional, I expect to be treated in the following manner at work.
    • As a professional, I feel the following values should drive the work site.
    • The following words or statements describe my ideal work climate.



    To save time you can give the group a few minutes to roam around the room reading the different notes. Then with the full group reconvened you can ask them to draw generalizations from the posted information.
