Being a successful consultant, trainer or coach, you most probably have demanding customers. Even if you are well prepared, your customers want innovation, creativity, good vibes, and energy flowing.
Preparing your trainings, workshops or meetings, you might use a number of resources like books, your own notes or websites. When I did this in the past, it took me a long time to find the right stuff. And next time, it took me a long time again.
Traveling a lot, I suffered from not being able to take all my favorite tools with me (there just wasn't a big enough suitcase...). Very often I just had wrong material with me.
That’s why I created WonderCards – a set of cards that you can take with you everywhere! Because it is this small! WonderCards come in quite handy if you are looking for inspiration while designing your workshop or training. They also are your survival kit if you are in desperate need for an idea to spice up your agenda during a session.
In this kit, you’ll find a set of 40 cards with powerful exercises, useful models, fresh formats & methods, which you can use in every workshop, training & meeting. You can use the cards for designing your agenda or for spontaneous agenda changes.
The kit covers all phases of a session: there are exercises for a sparkling warm up and introduction, methods for deeper structured reflection and analysis, energizers for fun and motivation and tools to round it all up highlighting results and achievements.
To create WonderCards, I combined all the knowledge and experience out of over 20 years working with groups. On top, I added best of out of multiple professional education sessions and books. I wanted this set of cards to be my and your survival kit in any situation. My very first version was completely handmade.
Most of the exercises, models or impulses do not need any additional material. You can start everywhere, at any time! You will find information about group size and time needed on every card. A colored stripe on the card side indicates if this WonderCard is useful for warm up, deep discussion, as energizer or for personal or group reflection. If needed, you can find additional information behind a short URL.
My first intention was to make the WonderCards as useful as possible. The second intention was to make them as beautiful as possible, so you love to use them and carry them with you everywhere. For the second purpose, I worked with a group of prototype users, and they helped me to choose the most pragmatic and beautiful design. (Design Thinking rulez!)
Today, WonderCards are available in German language only (as BeraterKarten). To make them available in the English language, I need your help. There are translations needed, the graphics work needs to be done, and then, there is the printing and the packaging. To master all of this, I need your support!
You can become first who gets the English version of WonderCards!
I believe, every consultant, trainer or coach should use WonderCards to be as flexible and as adaptive as possible. This is how we add value to this dramatically fast-changing, complex and dynamic business world.
So let’s help our customers by supporting their needs! To be flexible and adaptive, you no longer need to carry all of your books with you or search for your favorite model or exercise. Just take your WonderCards with you!
Let us make this happen – please support this campaign, either by getting your set of WonderCards or by sharing this campaign in your network. Thank you very much!
Thank you in advance for your support!

Risks and challenges
This is my first Kickstarter project, so I have spent a lot of time researching the risks and challenges.
My product is already designed and available in German, though flexible enough to make any changes that arise from feedback quickly and easily.
So the risks are:
Shipping products worldwide can be a daunting prospect, and it is the area which can easily grind a project to a halt. Due to the logistics of international shipping, backers in different regions of the world may receive their rewards sooner than others.
- We don’t fund
This is the worst case scenario. That we don’t attract enough funding to move forward. (In this case, you get your money back.) Here we will do our best and learn out of experience other projects have.
It's very important to us that everyone gets their WonderCards on time. If you back this project, I want you to have amazing workshops and sessions as soon as possible. Support this project and in return, I'll send you your pack of WonderCards this summer!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
