What are the benefits of using these Diagnostic Cards?


Stimulate powerful questions: 

Great thinking comes from great questions. LSP Diagnostic Cards prompt facilitators and participants to ask the right questions by clearly displaying ideas that may have been unthought of previously.


Get to the heart of what matters: 

Workshops have a tendency to run wild if given the chance. LSP Diagnostic Cards help you identify the key issues which clients are struggling with and effectively design workshops to address them.


Create a safe setting: 

Whether it is due to office politics, lack of clarity, embarrassment, or pride, it can be difficult to bring certain topics to light. The inherent humor of the image serves as an external prompt that makes it easier for clients to open the discussion to topics which they may have considered taboo or challenging to address.


Foster effective communication:  

A universal language makes collaboration easier and less vulnerable to misinterpretation. LSP Diagnostic Cards bring clarity to communication channels by giving participants artifacts with which to tell stories, address difficult issues and articulate complex thoughts.
