Our customers rave about our facilitations and custom activities. 

Here are a few of their favorites:

Gathering Kits

Bringing people together in a safe and structured way. Make gatherings more welcoming and enjoyable for diverse groups that include people who don't always enjoy socializing in large settings.

What's in the box?

These kits came loaded for welcoming interactions:

small talk

more inclusive networking

Why this?

Groups benefit when members meet each other and network. Connections between individuals make getting things done more efficient and effective.

While a group may want its members to connect, not every individual does. Mixers and socials can be taxing to anyone who is introverted, neurodiverse, shy, or not in the mood. 

Often this can be because small talk tends to be unstructured and shallow

small talk takes this burden off of your employees by adding structure and depth to interactions in large groups. No one needs to wonder what they are supposed to do or say.  After an event is over, participants will know something memorable about each other and will be more likely to reach out in the future. 


A game of communication insights

What does that name mean?

Everyone has their own biases, worldviews, and experiences that make them unique. Differences and diversity makes a group stronger when appreciated and understood. But we often talk past each other, or don't communicate, because key pieces of information aren't shared.

unicate is a game that helps with appreciation and understanding by providing a safe way for people to explore elements of how we communicate with each other, ways we overcome obstacles, and idioms that may not be as well known as we think. Perfect for pairs or larger groups, as a single exercise or a springboard for a broader discussion.

Tabletop Scenario Based Learning

You may have heard of Scenario Based Learning or SBL before. Many experts and academics have studied it for a long time because of how effective it is. They have found that it can quickly build expertise normally only learned on the job. SBL sets learning in a work-related context, or a scenario, to make learning feel more realistic and applicable. Scenarios also make lessons easier to remember. 

This type of training is often used for training related to compliance, soft skills, and leadership. Usually it is delivered over the computer. The cost of setting this training up is worth the effort because it can be repeated the same way for a large number of learners, over and over again.

We don't always work alone

While SBL is usually designed for a single person, Tabletop Scenario Based Learning or TTSBL is designed for teams and requires no computer development, This makes it ideal for helping with needs specific to a certain group. 

Leadership and soft skills are best learned with other people. TTSBL enables the team interactions that would actually take place back on the job. 

How does it work?

In a TTSBL session, a training facilitator guides the learners through the set-up to a scenario, or an inciting incident. Group members have a structured way of proposing what they would do in that situation. The guide uses probability dice to determine the success of riskier ideas.  

Working as a team, your learners will explore the different facets of the needed teaching, learning together and building a new shared experience to help with team cohesion and understanding.
