The Power of Visual Goal Boards
At the turn of the new year, BookPal decided to give a new activity a try: visual goal boards. We channeled our inner kindergartners as we cut and pasted images onto our poster boards. The result? Not only was it nice to sit down and relax with our coworkers, the time to reflect and plan was beneficial to everyone! Everybody walked away with a fresh mindset and a clear idea of their personal and professional goals for 2016.
Interested in giving it a try? Set aside an hour for you and your team to work on the project. Come prepared by bringing the following materials to the office:
- a variety of magazines (shopping catalogs, tabloids, business, etc.)
- glue sticks
- poster boards
The 4 Steps to Creating a Vision Goal Board at the Office:
Step 1: Think about what you want to accomplish in 2016. Then, sift through the pile of magazines and find images that remind you of these goals.
Step 2: Cut out the images that resonate with you and glue them onto your poster board. Keep cutting and gluing until your poster board is full. The less white space, the better!
Step 3: Present your board to your coworkers. Explain what you put on your board and why. A great first step to tackling your goals is saying them out loud to someone else.
Step 4: Hang up your board somewhere near your desk where you can see it. Leave it there as a daily reminder of all you plan to accomplish in 2016. (Here's a shot of me hanging up my goal board below!)
We challenge you to give this activity a try at your workplace and let us know what you think!
