Play To Learn at Work
Barometer XP delivers fun, powerful corporate programs to help workplaces thrive, from offering teams safe spaces to explore and experiment together to building specific skills that make change easier to implement.
We play with you to understand group dynamics and facilitate custom play sessions that offer meaningful insights into how to help your team members grow and interact with each other.
PURPOSEFUL: Our activities are more than just time out of the office. Teams that can solve small problems gain the skills needed to work together and successfully tackle bigger problems with larger stakes.
FLEXIBLE: Whether it’s a one-time session or a regular team building play session, our facilitators work to ensure that every moment is fun, effective, and brings your team closer together.
INCLUSIVE: Our games are physical, mental, and group-based so that everyone has a chance to have fun, try something new, and take on a role that helps achieve a goal or secure a win.
SYNC TO SWIM
If your workplace is experiencing frequent team disengagement, high turnover, or underperformance, Sync to Swim is a great way to address these pressure points through play.
When individuals struggle with factors at work such as how they belong and communicate or how to grow and maintain a work-life balance, Sync to Swim helps teams and leaders build awareness to find solutions to these issues.
Games and simulations offer a fun, safe environment to reflect on team dynamics. Barometer XP curates these shared experiences to improve overall trust, awareness, and alignment within workplace teams.

Every engagement begins with us playing together in structured activities (30-60 minutes) so that your team feels comfortable with our facilitators.
Barometer XP will end the session with our short survey to collect reflections about team strengths and opportunities for growth. Our lead facilitator will use this report as a baseline to set expectations for play sessions with the team leader.
Based on the assessment and lead conversation, our facilitators will design a 4–6-hour session consisting of games and reflections. Play sessions can be one long event, or several events broken into 60–90-minute intervals.
Barometer XP has an engagement framework that helps align team pressure points with specific game dynamics. You can learn more about the "Pressure Matrix" here.
After each session, the facilitator(s) will reflect with the team and offer the leader helpful resources (tools, strategies, etc.) and provide coaching to drive insights into the workplace.
Once the engagement concludes, Barometer XP will provide metrics around key outcomes and suggest ways to continue centering play in the team culture–which may include additional programs with us.
WHY PRESSURE MATTERS
Every team is comprised of individuals who resonate with and prioritize characteristics differently. Celebrating diversity can help teams respond to and prepare for evolving trends. Much like the scientific instrument, our "Barometer Readings" are point-in-time measurements that gauge workplace culture.
We designed this assessment to identify individual or team pressure points. By knowing areas of strength (low pressure) and opportunities for growth (high pressure), you can select games for effective learning and development.
Barometer XP wants to help you determine the right game for any moment. Our experts are ready to suggest and facilitate fun experiences around your team dynamics and workplace needs.
