Add excitement and depth to your training program with StylePlay. This is a collection of 12 quick and energizing group card games that reinforce learning and building awareness in a fun, nonthreatening manner.
StylePlay is based on the well-known research and personality theories of psychologists Carl Jung, William Moulton Marston, and others. Each of the games allows participants to identify preferred styles - either their own, those of other participants, or those of famous people.
How It Works
Every StylePlay Card displays an adjective describing a characteristic that people usually demonstrate in daily interactions. Participants can take part in 12 different card games - or the facilitator can create a new game with the StylePlay Cards. Each of the games allows participants to identify preferred styles - either their own, those of other participants, or those of famous people.
StylePlay can be used alone, in combination with any Style Suite title, and with other training products. The facilitator guide features a brief overview of the Style Theory that is the basis of the games and the other Style Suite instruments. In addition, debriefing questions and key learning points are provided to help facilitators draw significance and participants to gain deeper insights.
