Instructions 1

As with all our tools the Deck of Needs is both suitable for starters and very experienced, professional listeners. This English instructions is next to the demo above a good way for all levels to be introduced to the possibilities of the Deck of Needs.

Deck of Needs

The Deck of Needs offers many possibilities to find and listen to (your) needs. Many can be used from the first time you use the Deck of Needs. Others will take some or more experience with needs and the cards. To ensure that you get the information, that fits you, we've ordered the different ways to find and listen to (your) needs into three levels:

Starter: You have heard about the Deck of Needs and/or worked and played with it once or twice.

Advanced: You have your own Deck of Needs and played and worked with it more than 10 times.

Expert: You work intensively with other people, have your own Deck of Needs and played and worked with it for a long time.

Learning step by step

We love to show you in a Training or (online) Coaching session how the Deck of Needs can support you. We think, that you can also walk this path of learning with the different instructions and demo's. We reoommend to go this path step by step and only go to the next level, when you've read and (often) used the previous steps. Many ways to apply the Deck of Needs are clearer and easier to understand, when you sufficiently tried the previous steps. At the same time we see, that there may be much to discover on level 1. New insights have have improved our way of using the Deck of Needs. We think that the  completely new Fast Instructions and the Demo from 2020 may improve your way of working with the Deck of Needs too.
