When we facilitate workshops with teams, we prefer to go visual. We do a lot of drawing and writing on post-its and flipcharts. It makes a difference as to how people are engaged, as opposed to using digital tools for capturing outcomes.
But there is a negative part of it – we throw out so much paper, and I know it bothers a lot of people. It is not very eco-friendly, isn’t it?
Keep it visual, in a sustainable way
Yes, and we are super happy we have found it.
Magnetic™ notes offer a nice and modern way to get into a brainstorming session with the team in any environment. They use a unique patented technology called statically charged polypropylene film. With a stable static charge, Magnetic™ can stick to almost any smooth, dry surface.
Here are 4 reasons why we like them so much:
I don’t need a flipchart, whiteboard, or any other specific background to stick Magnetic™. I can easily turn almost any wall into a brainstorming area or team board.
They tend to stick into their places for a long time. Yes, this is one thing that really drives me crazy with standard post-its – they can really bring a mess into your neatly designed board, once they start falling down.
Magnetic™ are reusable. If you write with a non-permanent marker, you can erase the writing and reuse.
They are 100% recyclable. So, you can use them multiple times, and then you can safely throw them away into the recycling container.
If you haven’t tried them yet, it’s high time you did!
Your set of magnetic stationery and be creative and green!
