“Everything I know, I know because of love.” - Leo Tolstoy
— War and Peace
Global volatility, low applicable legislation and unpredictable business environment in general, - all of it increases the need for the agreement and socially beneficial conflict resolution, while old-fashioned methods of communication, based on manipulation are meant to be changed dramatically. We believe in great potential of the transformation of the very understanding of "negotiations" from individual confrontation to project-based co-operation by implementation of alternative education amid times, when the key success factor is the ability of conscientious leaders to form and lead super-efficient, adaptive project teams for the greater good, while new age requirements for the awareness and capacity in verbal communication, non-confrontational conflict resolution and dealmaking by entrepreneurs are growing exponentially regardless of the industry, jurisdiction or technology applied.
multi-stakeholder dealmaking and strategy communication board game
The world's first board game, designated to practice multistakeholder dealmaking while learning about bona fide leadership, building cooperative vibes and solving business cases simultaneously in small teams of any type, - whether corporate or independent.
One of revolutionary features of it is the lack of competitive elements. Moreover, in search of practical solutions players strive to achieve co-vision together in an atmosphere of cooperation, openness and rapport. For the same sake, instead of stereotypical assessment approach, marks-like feedback system has been adopted, as we consider encouraging subjective approach to communications the most productive in general.
In order to let that revolutionary experience be creativity provoking, a detailed regulation of the rules has been left at vendor's discretion. Having flexible game conditions introduced, based on already mentioned principles, some general terms still meant to be preserved.
At the second, practically oriented round, players are offered to recreate real-life negotiation case, based on the circumstances, proposed by the leader of the first stage (most often, a conflict or deal in progress). By developing communications from real-life situations in roles, players can also interpret possible negotiating scenarios of the same case, based on different aspects of the case, which are defined “randomly”. We have specifically made the rules of this game light and free, so that you can fully express your creativity while implementing your own vision. In this way, we hope you will manage to transform the potential available in any tense situation into a common greater good in a pleasant game form and, consequently, in reality.
So, at the first round, players take turns in pulling out a card, reading it, getting prepared to answer the questions, provide the answer itself, followed by feedback (marks) from other players in the form of one only token. Experience is shared in both "failed" and fruitful negotiations, manipulations, communication channels, their types and designation in conflict and beyond as well as principles of integrative dialog. Core attention goes to project-based collaboration and what makes project team ideal. Thus, the goal of the first stage is mental “warm up” for the second practical round, as well as “random" leader identification (the player, who receives the biggest amount of marks of a specific type, not known in advance).
Simulate case scenario with Role Badges!
Players get together up the round table with their individual backgrounds, expectations and business problems in an environment, conducive to aesthetic entertainment in a chamber-like atmosphere.
best practices sharing:
Invoke profound conversations with Immersive Cards!
Topics include key ingredients of “success”, information processing in media chaos, strategy and legal issues, stages of negotiating process in deal making and conflict resolution. Discussions cover cross-cultural, corporate and individual aspects in deal-making; leadership style, empathy and assertiveness; role of gender and culture in productive communications, energy, gender aspects and more.
Ensure interpersonal connection via 4 Good Tokens!
By providing each other with constructive feedback in the form of universal marks: "clear", "valid", "convincing" or "complete" rather than by expert assessments and stereotypes, fresh patterns are developed for a constructive approach to business communication that encourages cooperation
rapport and trust establishment:
Practice spontaneousness with the Nice Dice!
Identifying a session leader by means of a "random" factor eliminates tendency for domination, while in combination with previously built rapport establishes trust among players both in regards to peers and the process of the group surf-like interaction itself.
