The visual way to trigger
meaningful conversation

Supporting communication, collaboration and creativity online.

Get people to talk about what matters

Talking about group processes, daily struggles or personal goals online doesn't come easy? Your remote team doesn't bond during the weekly meeting? Your online coaching feels shallow and ineffective?

Application 1

Connect experience with images

metaFox online lets people associate what matters to them with a picture. Deepen conversation with visual triggers: the power of projective methods gets you from a short “I am okay” to a new level of depth and discoveries.

How does it work?

Go to Select your session goal. Choose a framing question. Share your session link. Have a conversation like never before.

When can the metaFox visual retro help?

Open virtual workshops & interactive webinars

Start your online workshop by having participants connect to their real-life experience – selecting an image which represents the topic. This provides the basis to share meaningful personal stories & experiences instead of general knowledge.

Retrospective of a remote team

Retrospectives are most effective when team members dig deep. Addressing personal challenges and sensitive topics in a remote team can be particularly challenging. Often the emotional connection and trust are missing. The metaFox visual retro eases the start of team conversations that matter – opening up team members for connecting on a deeper level.

Virtual teambuilding

Teams are most effective when team members care about one another. The basis for this is meaningful sharing of what matters to people inside and outside of work. The metaFox visual retro makes this happen by letting people connect personal experience with powerful pictures.

Online coaching

Every coach knows that images can be powerful anchors for visualising goals. This is also true in an online environment. Build your online coaching session on the basis of visual anchors – use images to help your coachees come up with compelling and picturesque goals!

What the users say

“I use the deep pictures of metaFox to gather associations of my participants on a workshop topic. Using the images, I experience time and time again that participants share their thoughts much more concretely. Especially academics tend to hide their feelings behind fancy phrases; through working with images, we bring their thoughts to the ground and talk straight.”
