How to Play
Ask the group to consider the current situation or goal and individually brainstorm actions in these three categories:
- Start: What are things that we need to START doing?
- Stop: What are we currently doing that we can or should STOP?
- Continue: What are we doing now that works and should CONTINUE?
Have individuals share their results.
This exercise is broad enough to work well as an opening or closing exercise. It’s useful in framing discussion at “problem-solving” meetings, or as a way to brainstorm aspirational steps toward a vision.
