Description of MyHero activity

This self-introduction activity based on the metaphor of a hero allows participants to share their personal opinion on their favorite hero and thus to get to know each other better. Excellent option to create a connection within the group and to share unbiased points of view that can be related to the training’s topic.



  • Introduce the activity to the participants and allow them to choose their favorite hero from the 6 characters presented on the board.


  • Participants choose their hero and use their Colltrain avatar to mark their choice on the board.
  • Each participant presents to the group his choice and the reasons behind it.
  • Very often participants share hobbies, beliefs, values, personal traits, and preferences.

Debrief (suggested)

  • The facilitator may ask the following questions:
    • What do you think of these common choices? What does this mean to you?
    • Do you see any connection with the main topic of our discussion?
