Fun & Games: Using Competition to Enhance Creativity and Collaboration among Teams

About the Program

Let’s Have a Little Fun!

What is the right approach to creating a great company culture, employee experience, or high performing teams? We all know the power of shared experiences to help teams build strong relationships. But you can’t go throw axes every week and the breakout rooms are good for about one round. How can using simple games cultivate trust and empathy among your teams? And, can they help to push the boundaries of collaboration by regularly engaging in play as a method of work?

Key Takeaways

  • Why play is essential to creative teams.
  • How games help us learn our collaborative advantages.
  • What makes a game, a game.
  • Learn two quick analog games that are repeatable and impactful for your teams.
