    About Culture Kits

  • Kit Contents

    50 question cards centered around life, experiences and

    values—both in and outside of work.

    Introduction

    This one hour exercise helps teams (especially newly

    formed teams) get to know each other in a deep,

    meaningful way.

    Each person is given a deck of cards with a series of

    questions that uncover how they view the world, their jobs,

    the future, etc. Participants choose which questions they

    feel most compelled to share with their team—building

    rapport, empathy and common ground between members

    of the team and the team at large.

  • Instructions

    This exercise can be conducted with teams of 3-40.

    Small groups (7 or less)

    • Each person gets their own stack of cards and reads

    through all the questions (50 total)

    • Each person picks 4-6 cards that they want to answer

    (depending on time allocated for the exercise); at least

    1 card must be work-related

    • The group goes around and each person shares their

    answer to one card at a time

    Large groups (8 or more)

    • Each person gets their own stack of cards and reads

    through all the questions (50 total)

    • Group divides into smaller subgroups, ideally pre-sorted

    by the lead to ensure that people are paired with people

    they haven’t worked closely with; subgroups should be

    between 3-6 people

    • Each person picks 4-6 cards that they want to answer

    (depending on time allocated for the exercise)

    • Each subgroup goes around and each person shares

    their answer to 1 card at a time

    • The whole team reunites and everyone shares their

    answer to one of the cards with the entire group (this

    can be one of the answers they shared with their

    smaller group or a new one)

    Suggestions

    Don’t be afraid to dive deep:

    This exercise is about helping your team members get to

    know a side of you that they might not get to see on a day

    to day basis. The best way to help them do that is by going

    in-depth with your answers. Avoid one word or overly brief

    responses—instead share the “why” as much as you can

    as well as the potential impact that the topic has had on

    your life and work.

    Only share what you feel comfortable sharing:

    None of these questions are mandatory so please feel free

    to opt out of answering anything you don’t feel comfortable

    sharing in the group.

    Create a safe space:

    Some of these questions can bring up tough emotions and

    cause people to be vulnerable. Please be respectful and

    compassionate when people are sharing.
