How can you build team trust and understanding to create a more empathetic team? What if we said…Improv!
In this Teamraderie experience, a Stanford University-based Education and Outreach and Diversity and Inclusion professional joins you live. Your team will learn how to put yourself in someone else’s shoes and respond to their emotions. This helps to develop social skills and the ability to understand and connect with others, which is a key aspect of empathy.
In the Mirroring Game, you will surface empathy through observation. In the Story swap Game, you will build trust while practicing listening skills and learning new things about each other. And in the X & Y Game, you will practice naming others’ emotions to discover ways to become more intuitive into your team’s thoughts, feelings, and reactions.
This experience is recommended for any team looking for simple, effective games to play together that can help strengthen bonds and build trust.
You will be assigned one of our acclaimed creator hosts to lead your experience.
