Stupidly Simple Square Wheels Facilitation Toolkit


The Stupidly Simple Square Wheels Facilitation Toolkit is an easy-to-use and complete toolkit for supervisors and managers and team leaders. The goal is simple: Use the included Square Wheels One image and worksheets to involve and engage your people in workplace improvements and promote the sharing of ideas and opportunities.

This Toolkit easily sets up the opportunity for groups of people to share their ideas about what things might be improved and how things might be done differently. You’ll find it a basic tool for asking for ideas and listening to suggestions as it sets up a language for identifying “Square Wheels” and “Round Wheels.”

What our customers have to say

I have been a trainer for a few years now–I would not have believed that “one” image could hold everyone’s attention and bring out the discussions that took place in a 2.5 hour learning session but the Square Wheels One image was awesome!
Square Wheels is an excellent tool, with well-written text, great visuals and a must for any company or individual who is serious about change and making improvements!
