The design is, well, “Stupidly Simple” in that there is no required training nor experience needed to use these materials effectively. And, we include a variety of instructional ideas and support, allowing you to understand some different situations in which the materials can be used.
The Stupidly Simple Square Wheels Facilitation Toolkit is an easy-to-use and complete toolkit for supervisors and managers and team leaders. The goal is simple: Use the included illustrations and worksheets to involve and engage your people in workplace improvement and improve the sharing of ideas and opportunities.
This toolkit is clear and straightforward and sets up the opportunity for groups of people to share their ideas about what things might be improved and how things might be done differently. You'll find it to be a basic tool for asking for ideas and listening to suggestions and one that can lay a foundation for a language of identifying "Square Wheels" and "Round Wheels."
If you purchased the Icebreaker, choose to NOT purchase this toolkit, since they are very similar. However, if you would like the extra Lego posters that are included in this Facilitation Toolkit, please email Scott@squarewheels.com and I will update you.
