A stack of facilitator cards with Magnet Statements top

A deck for you,
not your participants.

60 processing tools for facilitation planning, responding to the needs of your group, and improvising when the unexpected happens. Funded on Kickstarter by 359 absolutely amazing facilitators.

Cards for planning,
responding, & improvising.

Facilitator Cards are helpful throughout the entire facilitation process. From long before you get in the room, until you're packing up your supplies and giving hugs & high-fives on the way out.

Planning

Easily map out the processing tools and flow you'll use to accomplish your goals. Jot down the activity you're planning on each card. Erase or reorder — flexibility on demand.

When a new need presents itself during a facilitation, choose from your remaining cards to react accordingly. Give your group the power to help steer the ship.

Improvising

Have an hour left that you weren't expecting? Did your ideation activity fall flat on its face? No worries! Shuffle the deck. Choose another card.

For Co-Facilitating

Sharing a common language and a comprehensive set of tools, you can seamlessly work alongside other facilitators. Whether it's your first time teaming up or the thousandth.

Pick the perfect
tool for the job.
