This module is designed for teams who already get along well and know each other, but they have lost their spark. Through activities that engage team members in both personal reflection and analytic discussion, your team will come together to connect with the why behind your work and get excited about what is actually possible despite your constraints. Though intended to dig deeper than the first module, the activities are still based in games and interactive activities designed to be fun. Based on the principle that it is easier to learn and gain new insights when you are relaxed and laughing, we design every module to bring play into work. The cornerstone activity in this module is the Empathy Toy. The game includes a physical toy kit which will be mailed to one or two members before the session in order to play the game during the virtual gathering.
Each module is designed for 4 hours of “face time” with your team which can be delivered all at once or divided up between 2 or 3 sessions. This approach allows the modules to fit into your existing team meetings. It also allows for team members with different learning styles to digest what they have learned and reflect on it between sessions. Also, if you had set aside 4 hours for the gathering and you had one hour of content that you wanted to lead yourselves, we could do part of the module during the virtual event and then save one element for a follow-up activity or separate meeting.
