Description of the tool

On a large wall space mount paper and draw an island and legend. The Legend is (please provide your own symbols):
- Towns/cities = coaching skills
- Viewpoint = coaching reflection and experience
- Buildings = coaching tools and methods
- Paths/roads/rail = coaching ideas
- Ocean = challenges
- Ships = solutions for challenges
- Arrows leaving the map = websites/links/resources
The general idea is that once the map has been introduced through out the week participants add to and develop the map. As a starting point information from pre-questionnaires is displayed about the experience, skills and ideas of participants.
A review and last visit to the map is done in the LSD pre-departure panic session.


  • It is important to allow time to develop the map and ensure that the map is integrated fully into the programme.
    The best is if the map is displayed in the room there people spend breaks and Open Forum time. This ensures accessibility of the map. You can also introduce a question and answer section in the same room.
