Outline for module 2

  • the Strengths Movement
  • implementation

The participants take on the roles of employees of a movie production company, which has just come across an excellent opportunity to make it in their industry. Their task is to invent an idea for a film that will win the contest. This seemingly easy task will turn out to be a real challenge when it comes to collaborating with the staff at the other departments. People have different communicating styles, different personalities, different ways of perceiving the same tasks, and various priorities. All that makes the game not only immensely compelling but also highly informative. In its basic structure, the Movie studio training game draws on Carl Gustav Jung’s theory of psychological types. The participants get assigned to one of four teams symbolized by the colors: red, yellow, blue, and green – a convention popularly applied in the context of psychological types. The division into teams is carried out in an interesting but at the same time, uncomplicated way and the carefully prepared instructions strengthen the effect of the game itself. This makes it possible to observe a whole variety of behaviors typical of the particular styles of communicating and decision-making. This is a game that not only absorbs the participants, but most of all enable them to learn about their own (and the other players) style of building interpersonal relationships and manner of making the decision. It is a game which reveals the strengths and potential weakness, inspires and leads the participants to valuable conclusions for the future.
