Creativity on Hand: May 12
Hack your Box is a simple yet impactful methodology which uses a piece of paper and a pencil to create a physical model of your unconscious thinking (your B❒X), and a process of reflection and sharing to make adjustments (hacks) to your thinking to provide better results.
Since April 2020 I have been donating sessions as my response to COVID19. I welcome you to attend any of these donated sessions below with my compliments.
Hack your B❒X by the Numbers:
What Makes Hack your Box Different:
Relatable Metaphor: Thinking Out of the Box
One of the more common phrases used in business when current thinking is not getting desired results is, “We need to think out of the box.” Hack your Box changes that phrase from tired cliché to actionable mindset shift leading to predictable change.
Leveraging the IKEA Effect: The DIY B❒X
“The IKEA effect is a cognitive bias in which consumers place a disproportionately high value on products they partially created.” The DIY Box creates that sense of connection and ownership which can generate deeper reflection.
Every concept has a fully illustrated relatable storyline using culturally neutral images.
The process has been used successfully in more than 30 countries and in multiple languages.
Learner Directed Change
The process is not prescriptive in nature. No one is told what to think, or how to change. Instead, learners are led through a process of self-exploration of the thinking that they want to change, and then create a model for that new thinking and the impact of that thinking on their Box.
From Conceptual to Concrete
Each person’s mindset is invisible to themselves. Unconscious bias, (or bias of any type) is very hard to identify, let alone change. The Box metaphor, and the process of creating and writing on the physical box makes the invisible, to visible, and with that awareness comes the opportunity for change.
A Physical Artifact from an Online Program
The vast majority of online learning solutions have no real-world artifact. The DIY Box creates a meaningful artifact that exists when the computer is turned off. It is common for people to leave their DIY Box on their desk as a reminder of their new thinking.
Mindset change is a part of many critical arenas. Hack Your Box has been successfully applied to:
Future Proof your Thinking
Boxy: The Hack Your Box Character
Boxy is the central image through all Hack your Box programs. Boxy is non-cultural or gender specific. Boxy shows emotions without facial features to allow participants to more easily relate to the storyline or metaphors presented. Feedback to Boxy has been very favorable across cultures.
