How to conduct this activity

Start by asking each person to think of something they appreciate about winter. This could be a favorite winter activity, a feeling of being cozy on a cold day, or something else. Then, ask each person to think of ways that their team or project can learn from winter. This could be things like gaining insight from the quiet times, finding ways to use the time for reflection, or learning from the times of darkness. Finally, ask the team to think of a specific action they can take to apply what they have learned from winter to their team or project. This could be something like creating a new process or habit, adjusting an existing process, or taking the time to make a plan. The goal of this template is to use winter as a source of inspiration, allowing the team to reflect on their work and brainstorm new ideas.
