desired outcome

  • A feeling of ‘Heard, seen, respected’ from each crew member.

  • The resistance within the group have been voiced in an honest and respectful way.

  • Common grounds of both sides of the resistance have been found, and a way to address it and move forward together with the understanding and respect for both sides.

How WE DID it

The exercise/model is layed down physically on the floor, with each step written on a piece of paper. This is done so that the person doing the exercise can physically step into the different steps/phases of the exercise to be better able to understand each one.

One member of the crew is to walk through the exercise/model with the rest of the crew member sitting in a circle around observing. They are there for help and support if the on going through the exercise needs help to formulate themselves or need to be asked more questions to better understand each step.

The whole crew is there to understand and empathize with the one going through the exercise.

The exercise is repeated as many times as needed, for each resistance within each person.
