Sustainability and re-usability of the tools is important to us. Almost all tools are, or can be made, for repeated use. Most accessories needed to use the tools, such as dry erase markers, sticky tack or magnets, are included in the box for easy ‘plug and play’ use.

Maximize the effectiveness of the toolboxes with a virtual or in-person facilitated learning experience to better understand the tools and how to apply them.

While the tools come with instructions, additional training is highly recommended for developing capacity and confidence, and increasing the successful use and potential results from using the tools.

Toolbox training is adjusted accordingly for different types of teams or types of group process leaders such as Professional Facilitators, Agile coaches, Design Thinking leaders and educators.

We have multiple options for extra support and will work with you to identify the best choice for you.
