- Approach: Giving a creative presentation
- Time investment: 1 hour per person
- Costs: 10-50 euro
- Resources: T-shirts with letters on the back
- Element for success: Enthusiasm
Tessa brainstorms with her team about the presentation of the annual plan. It's only about the form, the content is pretty much clear. This year, for the first time, the profiles of the facilitators will be distributed among all teams of Discus of HVO-Querido. “Let's put ourselves on the map with a song!” someone suggests. "A poem!" shouts someone else. “I have a nice video!” says Tessa. The enthusiasm is growing. That's how it often goes. Earlier Tessa sometimes thought: What a job. But afterwards it always turned out to be okay. At one point it was well known: Tessa always comes up with an original idea to give a nice presentation.
Let's do this
They have decided: each team member presents the profile of one other team member. They have T-shirts made with different letters on the back, which say something about the different profiles.
Silence in the hall
On the day itself, the other teams will also present their annual plan. The room is packed when Tessa's team enters. They are all dressed in black leggings, a black skirt and a black shirt with a colored letter on the back. People look at the clothes of the group entering. When it's their turn, the seven team members shuffle to a spot on the stage, their backs to the audience. There is immediately silence in the room. When they are lined up, it becomes clear which word they form together: D I S C U S !
The blind man
First the D turns around, then the I, the S. The C is on Tessa's back. She shows a video about creativity. A blind man with a gray beard sits on the curb. Next to him is a sign: I am blind. Please help. There is very little money in his can. Then a woman dressed in black stops. She doesn't say anything to the man, but picks up his plate and writes on the back: It's a beautiful day, but I can't see it. Then she walks on again. Now there are suddenly a lot of people who put some money in his can. The blind man wonders what happened. Tessa explains. The woman in the video is said to be a creative person as a residential supervisor, a friendly personality who feels good what someone wants or needs.
A creative seeks out-of-the-box solutions for clients needs.
Tessa turns around again. Then it is the turn of the next person - she has the U on her back - and tells about another profile of a residential supervisor. This continues until everyone has been. Tessa's team will be working with these profiles this year. It will be further developed in the coming months. The presentation has come to an end. The team turns around. Loud applause echoes through the hall.
