The inner team - Coaching subject - Model by Friedemann Schulz von Thun - Board in German
There is one way often used by coaches is to describe the inner conflict of a person with different voices and giving them a graphical optical background.I have this created in miro - This example shows the inner conflict of a person who hears from his boss:I have choosen you for this task, because you’re the only one who can do this.The inner conflict of this person is:He is totally exausted and without any energy on one side and on the other side he feels flattered by his boss. He likes to shout at his boss but his inner voices telling him not to do so … I really love to work with miro in a coaching process … it offers me so much to show: Michael
How I adapted my approach to remote workshops
As an Agile Coach I used to work with clients in-person - I love that ❤️Conducting a remote workshop isn’t just the same - nor should it be. Both formats have their benefits and disadvantages, but as a facilitator I can’t just do the same in a remote setting what I used to do in-person by using a digital whiteboard. I reflected upon this little dilema in a recent article of mine. As a facilitator of a remote workshop I have to think about much more deliberatly then for an in-person workshop. I have to create and set the stage perfectly so that my audience isn’t drifting off. ➡️ Here you find my article: The missing 10 minutes before a remote workshop ⬅️❓I would love to know, what do you do differently when preparing a remote workshop compared to an in-person workshop? And what do you think about the tips I layed out in my article?⬇️Below you can find an example that I explain in the article how I try to set the stage even before the actual workshop has started.
Market research with MIRO
Hello, I am Nestor Zegarra, who recently graduated from Johannes Keppler University Business School in Linz, Austria. Due to covid-19 restrictions, I had to find a solution to conduct online qualitative research. Therefore, I chose to use MIRO for developing a focus group discussion.The different characteristics allow my research to collect the necessary data. The interviewees were able not only to express themselves but also to interact with each other. I believe that MIRO has great potential to develop more and more applications in different aspects of interaction and production of its users' data.I would like to know if anyone else has had a similar experience in using MIRO for research.
'The Virtual Middle Place'
A very insightful study by PwC on #remotework trends. Zooming on the 'physical office' conundrum, it seems like employers and employees have different expectations on what the physical workplace should deliver.In my mind, I can see a promising middle ground that is the hybrid model. Simply because none of those factors quoted by both employers and employees are impossible to achieve while working remotely.What I'm proposing (in fact, a couple of my clients are running away with this idea!) is the concept of 'Virtual Middle Place' (somebody has a snazzier moniker?) It is a hybrid workplace enabled by collaborative and interactive platforms such as Miro, Mural and Stormboard.It is a middle place for an organisation where some people will choose to work from home, some in the office, and most will switch their environments once in a while. A very fluid working environment, yet always connected.Using #virtualmiddleplace, facilitative leadership theories and techniques, I believe I can help
Planning projects together
When our team started planning new projects for the current period, we decided that it was time to have everyone participate and commit. We also wanted everyone to know about everyone else’s projects, and we wanted to provide a chance for everyone to participate in anything that was of their interest and matched their skillset. Obviously, we jumped directly to Miro.In our board, a few things happen:Everyone participated planning the projects. Everyone shares updates on the activities related to the projects they are involved with. Everyone provides feedback!The last point is the one I am most excited about. During our monthly meetings, the whole team jumps into the Miro board to write questions, comments, suggestions, and provide help. We have never been a better connected team (even if we are working from home).
How I Discovered Miro and Virtual Facilitation Journey
For a world-travelling facilitator and trainer, March 2020 felt like my entire professional world had collapsed. Borders closed, clients either cancelled or postponed engagements, and suddenly my professional calendar looked pretty empty.What can I do when most of my work requires people-to-people engagement and interaction?And then I discovered Miro, and what a journey it has been! Read about my experience and my ‘Top 5 tips to transition into a virtual facilitator’:https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/making-jump-transitioning-virtual-facilitation-isman-tanuri/I’d love to hear your thoughts and your own experience too in the comments.

Changes in Mind Map functionality
Hey fellow Miroers. As noted by @German Manvelov in this post, it looks like there are number of changes in the way Mind Maps, some noted in the updated Mind Maps and others not.Some of the changes:Reassigning nodes - Noted in the help article, you can now reassign a child/parent node by simply clicking and dragging it - however, as noted by @German Manvelov, this is perhaps not as polished as it could be and appears to create some challenges, especially if you you are simply try to move the node and not reassign in. Here I am just clicking and dragging a node - watch as it reassigns itself as I just attempt to move it over to the right: Creating a new Mind Map from a node - In this post by @Diy, I believe there was previously a bug where you could duplicate a mind map node using copy/cut-and-paste, Ctrl+D, or Alt+drag. Once you did, it retained its status of a sub-node which looked kind of funny on its own. However, it could still be reattached to a mind map was orphaned. Now when yo
I just wanted to leave some feedback on the User Story Map template
I've just been trying to use Miro for Story Mapping using the Story Mapping template. It was looking good to start with but after a while when I came to need to organise Activities and items on the backbone row it all just fell apart and I had to give up.The behaviour of the Activity and Backbone row items basically breaks the entire usefulness of the User Story Map template for me. The way I story map, I have Activities at the top, then items on the backbone row form the 'walking skeleton', these are the minimum set of non-optional stories that enable the system to work. To start with items under the backbone might be details or sub-tasks of backbone items, but further down the map, perhaps several release slices down, tasks at that location still relate to the activity, but may not relate directly to whatever task was on the backbone row. These later tasks might represent alternative user journeys through the system, or quality of life improvements for the activity.The problem is tha
Organizing lots of documents
I’m looking for some advice and guidance on using miro for a working group. If they are looking to post many documents, weblinks, images etc within key themes - what is the best way to organize this? Folders? Multiple boards? Is it searchable? Can they be nested within each other? If this a good tool for curating content/cataloguing content - or would you use a different tool such as google drive? I like the visual nature of it, easy ability to upload - but I am not sure if Miro is a good tool for such work. We are new at using it so any advice would be great. Thanks,Julie
Best way to execute a card-sort session for individual results
Hi Everyone,I’m new to Miro and I’m a bit stuck with something. Hoping that a Miro Hero can come to my rescue.I’m working on an internal help centre for our support team (20 members) and need to create categories for around 200 articles. I want the support team to create the categories and sort the articles via card-sorting.I’ve set up a Kanban board with 45 cards (article titles) and columns for groups. I’m pretty happy with the board so I’m ready to share it with the participants to start getting their input.Here’s where I’m stuck.I need help with understanding the best way to share my Miro board for card-sorting so that each participant has their own version to work on. I want them to sort the cards (articles) and name the groups individually and independently of each other.How can I do this?Is the only way to create duplicate boards for each participant or is there are more sophisticated way?I’ve been searching for 2 days, so please let me know if you have the steps or links to an
Can I create an edge to the canvas?
Please Miro Gods! Almighty pros! Tell me I can define a finite space so my non-native-late-adopters can stop getting lost. I realize they can click on "me" to get back, but the stress of it all is robbing me of workshop time and the participants of a stress free experience. Would also love to be able to lock half the features so I can introduce people to one tool at a time. Is that a thing? Cortisol + learning curve+ more space than we need= creativity drain.
“Zoom Fatigue” Is it real?TGIF
Hey everyone! Happy Friday 😊 I don’t know about you but lately I’ve been having soooo many video conferencing calls. Back to back. One zoom call to a google hangout to a FaceTime and so on and so on. I completely understand that during this time we’re all trying to stay connected and can feel isolated just being at home but I’ve almost hit a breaking point. How are all of you handling this? Any tips and tricks?

My Miro Story! How My Company Uses Miro
Back in the days when Miro was called “realtimeboard,” the platform was shared with me through a colleague and it was the resource for work that I never knew I needed. Since then, Miro has changed the way I work for the better! I manage 20+ different apps and brands with a remote team. Miro helps me keep projects organized while being able to make quick notes, start designs, and plan on multiple levels. Check out some of the work I get done in my screenshots below, hopefully it will help you work on your own boards. And not shown in the pictures is a hidden gem… I have a frame called “whiteboard” it is exactly what is sounds like, its a place to just write anything like an old school whiteboard App design and planning user funnels. Planning phases with a timeline. Easy way to record some ideas into tasks.
1-hour Miro Walkthrough Tutorial
Hi, Miro Community. I created a 1-hour video tutorial of (almost) all Miro features and functions. Each specific function is time stamped in the Youtube video description. The video covers with navigating, then left side menu functions, onto tips for sharing boards with others, and finally the bottom left menu’s presenting and facilitating options. I hope it helps new users as well as experienced users who might see something they’ve never used. The video is public and sharing is welcome.www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJG2LUmyv2E&feature=youtu.be

Building and running a Miro board for a live online training workshop
I have spent a lot of time lately translating my in-person training workshop content into a collaborative live online training environment. I've read and seen plenty of best practices from other sharers (thank you!) and created the boards as you can see below. I also managed to deliver a session of this 2-hour live online training workshop with business partners in another country this week. Here are my learnings from that opportunity: Less is seriously more! Miro is such fun to use and I actually built lots of engagements and activities for this session. I probably ended up using 50% of what I built. In an online environment, it takes probably 50% more time to complete activities and discussions than offline. The good thing is I can easily see what's next on my board and skip content/discussion as necessary. Give plenty of ramp up time! The participants love the experience of using Miro, the interactivity and the engagement throughout the workshop. To get to this stage, however, means
