We regularly compile learning aids to support our client engagements, whether coaching, team/function development or a large company event. These add-ons have ranged from well-designed games to launch a new brand to a comprehensive toolkit of back-of-the-napkin tools to help a team achieve its project charter. Our innovative team works with you to craft the right learning aids for every solution. We work quickly, offer fresh and engaging tools and ensure that the content is exactly right for your business need.
Created in partnership with one of our clients, the Sticky Values game was developed to help employees in groups of 3-6 learn how to apply company-specific core values to sticky business situations. Great for discussing business ethics, cascading new values, orientating employees, building teams and aligning employees around new cultural norms.
How it Works: Game players select a Situation Card from a deck of 25 situations and read the situation aloud. They then choose from a stack of Values Cards the specific value that applies to the situation, explaining why they selected that value. Other players chime in with point of view. All situations are customized to your culture and business. Each game includes value cards, situation cards, instructions and zip lock packaging with your company brand. Guaranteed to transform your company values conversations from platitudes to practices.
Optional: Take-away business card sized set of values and behaviors for each employee.
Note: We design the game to fit with your brand aesthetic. This is a sample of our work, only.
We originally created The Snomodust Summit as a cross-cultural communication simulation. The Snomodust activity helps interdependent teams learn how to improve communication, trust, and shared goal setting through a simple, engaging business simulation. Teams take on futuristic business roles, one team the marketing entity for a substance that can reverse the greenhouse effect and the other team the excavators and owners of the precious substance. Each team is given instructions about their own business culture, norms, beliefs and competencies. They meet three times in one hour to accomplish a specific goal, learning along the way the principles and skills that lead to strong inter-team and cross-functional teams.
