With the Eye on I method, creatives (and everyone) can clearly identify their real difference they bring to the table — in work, creation and collaboration.
The identity you create is shaped as an eye, and it serves not only as a camerton for your further work, but also as a storytelling device, a tool for feedbacks and Fördergespräche, and a centerpiece tool for the whole mindset of make creation great again™.
Build up (10')
Participants spend 10 min writing down all their strengths or characteristics on a piece of paper. Then they shuffle.
Filter 1: «But who ISN’T?»
On the received piece of paper, cross out all the points according to the filter to remove the most cliche ones. Then shuffle again.
Filter 2: «Get weird»
On the newly received piece of paper, cross out all the points that look too safe. Then shuffle again.
Filter 3: «Your thinking»
On the (again) newly received piece of paper, cross out all the points that talk about your operative or physical skills. Return the papers.
Check the remaining characteristics and take 10 min to visualize your favorite 3 on a ball as an eye: the pupil, the iris and the white area.
