Either checking-in or checking-out is a simple way for a team to open or close a process, symbolically and in a collaborative way. Checking-in/out invites each member in a group to be present, seen and heard, and to express a reflection or a feeling. Checking-in emphasizes presence, focus and group commitment; checking-out emphasizes reflection and symbolic closure.

Materials

    Instructions

    Step 1:

    Checking-in

    Stand or sit in a circle. Invite each member of the group to share one thing they “check-in” with. This could be a feeling, a reflection from the previous day, an attitude they bring into this session, or something playful like “the animal that represents my mood today.” Choose a check-in question based on the group and the purpose of the program.


    Step 2:

    One-by-one participants check-in, either in order around the circle or at random. Once every person has checked-in one time, check-in is over.


    Step 3:

    Checking-out

    Stand or sit in a circle. Invite each member of the group to share one thing they “check-out” with. This could be a feeling, a reflection experience, the most important thing they take with them. Choose a check-out question based on the group and the purpose of the program.


    Step 4:

    One-by-one participants check-out either in order around the circle or at random. Once every person has checked-out one time, check-out is over.
