Pulse Check

Q. Does everyone seem open to keep playing? Are the disengaged able to be more engaged?

Q. Are people having fun — smiling, laughing, in deep thought?

Q. Do you hear productive strategizing about how to improve round-to-round?

How

Position the reflection around pathways and resources for accomplishing goals and future growth:

  • How did the team organize itself around the rules and objectives?

  • Did conflict or miscommunication affect the game? How might you address that for next time?

  • Would more time, people, or resources have shifted the team's approach? How so?

Think

Position the reflection around rational planning and communication methods:


  • Did this game illuminate any patterns in how you give and receive information?

  • How might it be helpful to know the preferences and tendencies of your colleagues?

  • Could your team benefit from additional or more diverse perspectives?
