Group Size:

Notes:
This module allows the group to share and develop ideas for achieving their shared vision.

The group need to be clear about what their vision is. If they’re not, we recommend using Creating a Shared Vision first.

You will need to pre-prepare a PowerPoint slide to display at the start of the exercise reminding them of their vision statement.

This is a long session for Remote Delivery, so we suggest taking a 15-20 minute break in the middle where indicated in the notes.
