Emoji Gauge

> Initiate communication

Each participant will express their state of mind or mood about a specific topic at the start of the meeting so the host can best adapt the activities to follow.

Pre-requisites

Prepare a Survey activity with a specific question:

‘How do you feel now that April is over?’ or ‘How do you feel about discussing the implementation of project X today?’

Prepare suggestions with Emojis and the associated text: surprised, nervous, pressured, confused, happy, angry, depressed.

null

Only one answer is allowed. Depending on your group, configure the results in real time or at the end of the activity.

This is a quick activity and usually there won’t be a need to time it.

Activity settings Survey

  • Activity format: Single choice
  • Choices: Provide Emojis in image format
  • Results: Choose according to your group

Process

1

Presentation

Start the activity and clarify the question for the group if needed. Ask the participants how they feel to get the meeting started.

2

Collection

Each participant answers the survey by choosing the most appropriate emoji for their state of mind regarding the meeting’s topic.

3

Synthèse

Concluez en indiquant comment vous allez tenir compte du baromètre pour la suite des échanges.

Si le baromètre tend vers des sentiments négatifs, accordez-vous avec le groupe pour poursuivre ou non la réunion, et si oui, que chacun mette du sien afin que le moment reste bénéfique à tous.

Suggestions and variations

Feel free to play with the icons to make the gauge more fun, for example:
