How a Card Game Can Unify Your Office

by Evil HR Lady on May 12, 2017

One of the reasons people don’t get along at work is because they don’t really know each other as human beings. They see each other as functions, and by golly, Finance is always thwarting HR’s plans to make employees happy, so if you work in finance, I’m going to dislike you. (Just kidding, I like everyone.) If you can get people talking, you can help avoid some of the conflict that comes just from daily work life.

Strategy and design agency Sub Rosa developed a card game called Questions and Empathy that aims to get people talking by pushing them out of their comfort zones. Adweek describes it as follows:

The full deck, which is somewhat reminiscent of a deck of tarot cards, includes 49 question cards and seven “empathic archetypes,” with seven questions for each archetype. The seven different archetypes are somewhat abstract, with names like inquirer and alchemist. The questions are designed to push people out of their comfort zones and get them to have honest, open conversations.

It would be interesting to know what — at least — one of the questions is and/or to see an image of some of the cards.

Ugh. I’ve survived Myers-Briggs and Enneagrams. Isn’t this just more of the same?
