Over the years we have played various games with individuals and teams to illustrate the value of collaboration. The games are fun and non-threatening which allow for great learning experiences. Many people have AH-HA moments when playing games.
You know how you learn how to ride a bike as a kid, and then years later, you are able to hop on and cycle? That’s muscle memory. Your muscles remember what they are supposed to do and how they need to work together to keep you on the bike and keep the bike going. We like to think of the games as emotional memory. During the game each person experiences certain emotions that they remember. One day a situation will arise and those emotions will emerge, they will recall the game and their emotions, and be able to apply the lessons they learned during the game.
We hope you enjoy these games & techniques – we certainly love them. Each time we facilitate these games we learn new things!
