The setting of the game is that of medieval Venice. Participants organized in teams that represent merchant families try to establish trade relations with the other families. The goal for each team is to achieve their trade objectives. All objectives can be simultaneously achieved so competition is not a must, but a definite possibility.
After the game we hold a highly practical debriefing session. We analyze specific scenarios that participants experience at work and try to improve them by applying the principles learned during the game.
As a take-away participants complete a “behavior shortcuts map”. They write down recurring situations they find challenging and behaviors they can adopt in order to get better results.
