Visual Explorer is a powerful tool for encouraging collaborative conversations and effective dialogue in a safe learning environment. This innovative game uses a series of diverse images to create a visual vocabulary that helps people to express themselves through the use of metaphors, intuition, and emotion.
How It Works
Visual Explorer creates open dialogue and produces inspiring insights by combining images with one or more framing questions. The images are deliberately diverse and global in subject, context, and aesthetics. This helps participants open up about honest workplace feelings and helps build direction, alignment, and commitment towards shared goals.
