Roleplaying Games for the Workplace: Our Standard Offering

A team of players gathers for twelve hours over four sessions.

  • Session One: Building A Character
  • Session Two: Background, History, and Goals
  • Session Three: Skills and Experience Points
  • Session Four: Leveling Up

The fantasy setting and experiences can be conjured at game time, or specific themes can be tailored to address targeted needs or interests from your group.

We’ll weave the positive psychology-based VIA character strengths into the game.

In our seminar, players will:

  • self-assess to learn about their natural virtues and untapped strengths
  • utilize known skills at opportune moments for achieving desired outcomes
  • experiment with making high-risk choices outside of their comfort zone–and experiencing the thrill that comes with those decisions
  • reflect on fantasy world gaming lessons
  • imagine how the lessons mirror their real-world challenges
  • create an action plan to address real-world work (or life) needs and goals

  • Collaboration
  • Experiences–not "training"
  • Unique personalization 
  • Transferable skills
  • A sense of purpose
  • A multi-faceted life (3)
