People Management Selfcoaching Cards are not training material and do not provide answers.
Instead, they encourage you to self-reflect and see yourself through your team's eyes.
They are designed to help you access your inner wisdom on how each individual and the team
as a whole may need to be led and managed in a different and better way.

I use the cards in our weekly management meetings. Everyone picks a card and answers their question. This way all participants can learn from each other.
Since we use the cards, the meetings have become much more fun and people actually look forward to this part, as we used to discuss mainly technical things and procedures and have now added a new dimension by concentrating on soft skills as well.

Tips for use in groups

Use them as prompts for discussions or inspiration to brainstorm, to find out best practices.
What others say
My company unfortunately doesn't offer management courses or leadership coaching. When I got promoted, I just had to cope - with the new position, the new tasks and the responsibility for a team on top of that.
I received a set of People Management Self Coaching Cards recently and they really help me identifying areas where I just don't have enough experience yet and need to get more education on. Also they kind of show me a mirror and remind me not to forget about the team - because I really don't want to turn into my previous boss!
