Excelerant Learning

Our Immersive Learning Experiences aim to provide holistic growth, whilst still targeting specific measurable outcomes. We believe in the power of the collective and encourage all participants to be an active part of the process. Removing hierarchy and applying temporary team dynamics, we are able to grant the space for our participants to fully engage and take insights away and implement them into their future endeavours.

The B❒X.

We are often told to “Think out of the Box!”

But no one ever tells us what “the box” is that we are supposed to think out of? Taking the phrase, “Think out of the box,” literally we ask people to build and wear boxes that represent the boundaries of their thinking.

A client wanted to do a program on Out of the Box Thinking, and was offered something “out of the box” for their top 20 business leaders. They built boxes to define the boundaries of their thinking, put them on their head, and as a group explore how their boxes impacted their business.

What was initially an interesting exercise in creative thinking has evolved into a revolutionary way to experience and understand what it means to think out of the box, and why sometimes it might be even better to think in the box.

Since 2009 more than 20,000 people in 23 countries have used The B❒X.

The B❒X. Experience

Before we think out of the box, we must first define what that box is. In this four step process, participants customise a specially designed box as a representation of the invisible thinking box that limits their thinking.


The outside of the box represents our public thinking, our personal branding. It reflects what we want people to know or think about us. It is the “face” that we show to the world.


Each side of the inside of the box represents a different limitation we place on our thinking. By identifying the boundaries of our thinking, we are better equipped to know how to open new filters and go beyond those boundaries to think out of the box.


Wearing the physical box on our heads creates a powerful emotional experience of how limiting our invisible thinking box can be. Through this experience participants experience the challenges of coordinating action, sharing opinions, making decisions and executing a plan with a box on their head.


In the debrief and application phase, we draw connections between the physical box they have created in the program with the invisible thinking box they have created throughout their lifetime. By identifying when it is best to think in the box, and when and how to think out of the box, we improve the conditions for creative innovation.

The B❒X. has been used to explore:

  • Creative leadership

  • Team Alignment

  • Unconscious bias

  • And many more …

Hacking your B❒X. - Virtual Training

Leveraging the IKEA Effect:

“The IKEA effect is a cognitive bias in which consumers place a disproportionately high value on products they partially created.” The DIY Box creates that sense of connection and ownership which can generate deeper reflection.

Cultural/Linguistic Flexibility

Every concept has a fully illustrated relatable storyline using culturally neutral images.

The process has been used successfully in more than 30 countries and in multiple languages.

Mindset change is a part of many critical arenas.

Hack Your Box has been successfully applied to:

📦 Sustainability

📦 Inclusion/Diversity

📦 Leadership

📦 Change Management

📦 COVID19 Response

📦 Creativity

📦 Virtual Engagement

📦 Future Proof your Thinking

Boxy is the central image through all Hack your Box programs

Boxy is non-cultural or gender specific. Boxy shows emotions without facial features to allow participants to more easily relate to the storyline or metaphors presented. Feedback to Boxy has been very favorable across cultures.

Learner Directed Change

The process is not prescriptive in nature. No one is told what to think, or how to change. Instead, learners are led through a process of self-exploration of the thinking that they want to change, and then create a model for that new thinking and the impact of that thinking on their Box.

From Conceptual to Concrete

Each person’s mindset is invisible to themselves. Unconscious bias, (or bias of any type) is very hard to identify, let alone change. The Box metaphor, and the process of creating and writing on the physical box makes the invisible, to visible, and with that awareness comes the opportunity for change.

A Physical Artifact from an Online Program

The vast majority of online learning solutions have no real-world artifact. The DIY Box creates a meaningful artifact that exists when the computer is turned off. It is common for people to leave their DIY Box on their desk as a reminder of their new thinking.
