“Transforming the wisdom of groups”
Wisdom - The quality of having experience, knowledge, and good judgement; the quality of being wise.(Wikipedia)
Why play the game?
The game enables a group or team to take the first step in exploring their behaviour and thinking, and in doing so begin to recognise how the way we think, the language we use and the actions we take are all influenced by our mindset.
When to play the game?
If you have already explored the organisation or group using the Agility Magic cards you will be able to build on this insight If you have used the Navigating Collaboration resources to explore collaborative behaviours this will enable you to view the group again through a slightly different ‘lens’
Either way, you will have started to recognise how these aspects interrelate and are ready to develop a language and structure to explore mindsets a little more deeply in your group or team.
What's the game exploring?
It explores behaviours within or around the group taking either an INWARD FOCUS: What do the people in the group observe about the way it is operating? Or an OUTWARD FOCUS: What do the people in the group observe going on around them?
It considers thinking through 4 themes: DRIVERS, OPERATIONS, STRATEGY & META-VIEW
OUTCOMES OF PLAYING THE GAME The group will:
Understand which of the 4 ways of thinking dominate the behaviour of your group from an internal and/or external perspective.
Have considered how you may start to adjust these behaviours to enhance group thinking and performance
Be more aware of the influence of mindsets and recognise potential ‘blindspots’ in your thinking
What might we like to do next?
To deepen your thinking and enquiry skills consider the Agility Thinking Board Game
If not done so already take a look at the Navigating Collaboration Game as this also introduces elements of 'mindsets' in a safe and accessible way
Consider joining our Agility Gears training for delivering these resources to understand more about the underlying theory and practice
Agility Gears and the associated Advancing Agile Mindsets® resources have been created to raise awareness of the impact of mindsets on a group in a ‘safe’ and accessible way. In doing so enhancing several areas including learning, collaboration, well-being, innovation and productivity all key to the agile workplace.
