Working as a team with a board game. How nice is that? Based on the game, the participants learn together to set goals in a way that they contribute to their resilience. Moreover, the players play against the game together and it therefore promotes the group feeling. During the game, the team members encounter different situations, have to deal with windfalls and setbacks and regularly have to make choices. Because of the game format, the team members “forget” to behave in a socially desirable way, which brings out the “true” behavior that also happens in the workplace. This gives the coach the opportunity to observe and register the dynamics, resilience and patterns of the team and of the team members in a short time (the game lasts 1.5-2h). On the basis of an actual feedback after the game, this dynamic also becomes very clear to the team members themselves, and they then make a development plan together. Quote team leader Shell: “I have been doing all kinds of training with this team for more than a year to work more efficiently, but only now do I understand that I have to approach it completely differently.” This article about the game was published in the magazine for Positive Psychology in April 2017: Resilience in the game The game can be used as a one-off intervention or as part of a team development process.
