Version 1 of the 'Navigating Collaboration' Game

Accelerating collaboration through play

I've experienced a few training days and Wednesday was one of the most powerful I've experienced. The fact it gives everyone a voice and gives an insight into how they are feeling is pretty unique. The game seems to break down barriers that other team training can't. ‘

Quote from Helen Routledge CEO Totem Learning Ltd 

Understand your Social Dynamics: Based on the same Innovation Audit 3.0 questions but can now be played with up to 8 players and on a larger board.  It uses the same statement cards plus our unique 'Randomize cards' and 'Voting' cards, making the game more accessible to a wider audience.  

Straight forward, fun & thought provoking!

Playing this game gives each member of the group/team a 'voice' to safely express their views about what they see is going on in the team they are part of (the Learning & Control Dynamics) and how they feel the wider organisation is 'helping or hindering' the teams potential by exploring the Environment Dynamics. 

To finish the game each person can vote on:

  • what they collectively would like to work within their group/ team
  • where they need help from others 

This activity is a great way to introduce and discover the power of the social dynamics that are at play in any organisation.

Ready to start Navigating Collaboration using Version One?

This is the original game for 1 to 8 players and you will need two parts!

Part 1: Buy cards (English Version)

Part 2: Buy posters (English Version)

Instructions are on the poster.

The poster (board) comes in A1(recommended) & A2 versions

Allow 30 - 45 mins to explore each of the dynamics. You don't need to do all 3 at once.

The game also includes a set of Clean Language cards which can be used to clarify and enquire more deeply if required.

Keeping it 'safe'

We strongly suggest you start with the Learning or Environment Dynamics. When the group feels ready move onto the Control statements as these may feel quite 'challenging' for some initially.

Be prepared to be unlock great conversations AND have a clear idea about what you need to do next! 

Note: Version Two has a slightly different board design and wooden game pieces but the game format remains the same. Please see 'Special Edition Games' Tab for details.
