Square Wheels? What the heck are those engagement tools about…

I have been playing with a video that explains more about how my Square Wheels illustrations are used for facilitation of performance improvement and employee engagement. The learning curve on doing videos is a round wheel that I am trying hard to implement, using screencasting software. Guess if I can figure out one feature a day, I will eventually be okay with those things.

To build the video, I built a short slideshow in powerpoint. So, I thought to make it available on SlideShare.

If you are not familiar with the toolkits we offer to supervisors, consultants and trainers, check out this simple overview. We sell simple to use, powerpoint-based toolkits that work great to engage people in sharing their ideas for continuous improvement of workplace processes. They are simple and elegant tools for impacting how things roll…

I also uploaded a video that elaborates on the above slideshare. That is on YouTube and it basically narrated the ideas and themes included in the slides. You can see that by clicking on the image below:

Teaching the Caterpillar to Fly – A Slideshare program

Teaching the Caterpillar to Fly is the theme of my ideas on managing and leading change. I have presented worldwide on the theme and even developed a complete Square Wheels Change Toolkit that has metaphors, exercises, jokes, illustrations, quotes and all sorts of resources for presenting on the topic and involving and engaging people for change.

Part One of my Slideshare program illustrates many of my key learning points with images of caterpillars and butterflies and a variety of poems and haiku about the issues and opportunities to involve and engage. It is about fun and perspective and the issues of understanding the process of change.
