After an exercise, the group gathers in a circle and the facilitator throws the balls to different individuals. Before each throw, the facilitator shows the ball to the group and explains what it represents. For example, the facilitator might introduce the camera and ask, “what new perspectives did you gain?”. One at a time, each person holding a ball will be invited to share their thoughts before tossing it on to someone else.
In this way, all of the group members are actively involved and have enough time to think about their answers. This ensures that the feedback they give is diverse and in depth.
Key: "A key insight for me..."
Heart: "I experienced/felt..."
Open hand: "What helped me was..."
Thumbs up: "I particularly liked..."
Foot: "My next concrete steps will be..."
Camera: "A new perspective for me is..."
Brain: "I now understand that..."
Puzzle piece: "The critical part we're missing..."
Crown: "I found it particularly rewarding when..."
Light bulb: "I'm now inspired to..."
Magic lamp: "I wish we had the resources to..."
Hot air balloon: "Now that I see the bigger picture..."
World: "In the real world..."
Wrench: "We need better tools to..."
The group members themselves choose the balls they will use to put their thoughts into words. For example, someone might choose the thumbs up/down ball because she knows she wants to share what went well and what didn’t go well.
