4MAT Activity: Team Visioning Session

A departmental team begins an annual strategic planning session by completing a “Team Visioning” session. Team members are invited to reflect on how they can contribute fully to the vision process by completing a series of three statements:

  • The value of my perspective lies in…
  • My vision is…
  • My biggest hope for this process is…

Each team member then creates a visual collage which represents his or her responses to the statements. The group begins the planning session with each team member explaining his or her collage.


Focus: Visual processing exercise designed to encourage personal reflection and elicit sharing in partner and group exercises.


  1. Develop the statements to be completed by learners as they develop their collage. See examples of prompt statements mentioned earlier.
  2. Instruct learners to use the materials provided to create visual representations of their personal responses to the prompt.
  3. Invite learners to form small groups to share their collages.
