The workshop was based on a serious game, the MeWe cards, published by Ocadee. In a duo, you select 13 words best picturing your personality to introduce yourself to the person you banded with. As a second step, you will shortlist only 7 cards and pitch yourself in 30 seconds to the entire audience.
The workshop proposed to discover your personality style, learn to recognise others’ profiles and get introduced to how to adapt your communication to the personality of others.
The MeWe cards are categorising the personalities in 4 groups: Mouse, Bull, Eagle and Bear. Each type has typical behaviour, motivations and a communication style. Many other communication models are existing: Dope, Disc, Meyers-Briggs, Strength finder, PCM, that may help you to dig further. MeWe presents the benefit of using a serious game to kick-start the learning.
After the discovery of your own dominant animal, comes the insights of other personality styles in the group. The attendees gather by dominant animal and brainstorm about the “efficient way to communicate with them”. Each group presents the conclusion of their brainstorming. The participants get insights on how to adapt their communication mode to build an efficient message delivery to each specific animal.
At the end of the workshop, the participants left with new tools to recognise personalities in their environment and facilitate their every day’s communication. The serious game fosters the learning in a playful way and guarantees that you learn by practising.
