|Purpose||This method is intended to empower participants, create trust, and evoke personal narratives and perspectives about their identities using an appreciative inquiry approach.|
|Time||15 minutes to one hour|
|Description||Participants are asked to describe the activities/tasks, positive qualities, and abilities of another in a group. By asking them to describe another, they can express observations and nuances that they might not feel comfortable sharing when talking about themselves. When used with vulnerable communities that don’t feel confident in their own worth, opinions, and capacities, this activity could be useful to identify what tasks are being done and how. It can be useful to foster collaboration and increase self-esteem.|
