DescriptionGames are an excellent way for people to learn and practice new skills individually, but they can be even more powerful as a vehicle for people to learn and grow together. Great play experiences result in a team that can harness even more value than just the sum of its parts.

The COVID pandemic turned the existing workplace model on its head, creating an opportunity to rethink how workplace cultures and environments can create a space for people to connect, contribute, and thrive. Games can and should be an important part of these conversations.

In this session, we'll explore how playing games with colleagues and collaborators is such a valuable experience for building team culture and cohesion. Not only will the session take you behind the scenes of how games can inspire sustainable change, we'll also play a few of BarometerXP's signature games that inspire self-awareness and meaningful connections.
