Tacit knowledge

Utilises tacit knowledge

The CCS is a tool for tapping tacit knowledge — everything we know that we don’t have words for, or can’t find the words for.

It provides a way for participants to step outside themselves, to reflect and to uncover what they truly think or feel about a subject.

Drawing upon this tacit knowledge gives participants greater opportunity to:

  • fully engage in a development or education process
  • clearly contribute their true thoughts
  • motivate themselves
  • reach and genuinely commit to agreements with others
  • create connections and work better with others
  • recruit their emotions to help them take action.
Tacit knowledge

Creates unique dialogue

With much of our deeply held beliefs, we don’t really know what we think until we hear what we say.

The cards enable people to unlock the door to self-understanding in a safe, creative and liberating way.

A way to hear what we say

The process helps people to build a firm foundation for honest and open communication, both with their inner self and with those around them.

Tacit knowledge

Patterns of significance

The CCS creates a ‘safe space’ right from the beginning of the interaction. Participants are empowered, through the images, to create their own patterns of significance — their own territory for communication and understanding.

In doing so, they experience their own voice and authority.

Tacit knowledge

Meaning-making system

Rather than trying to find and select words to accurately represent experience, the CCS images themselves provide a ready-made logical framework that encompasses (for the participant concerned) the essence of the experience they are trying to convey.

Lived experience

In doing so, the images provide the person with a ready-made meaning-making system that links all associated concepts, feelings, words and actions in an integrated whole that can be truly representative of their lived experience.

Furthermore, it provides them with an easy way to compare, contrast, assess and prioritise these elements of experience.
