We often get asked if they have to be called card games, and the answer is no they don’t.
Some leaders, managers and trainers jump at chance to call them card games as that fits the demographic they are working with, whilst others prefer to use the Strategy Cards as activities, tools, or interactive exercises.
Some of our customers have had concerns in the past, where they have said the people that they work for at are very high level and will see it as silly and won’t appreciate playing games.
From our experience in this scenario, we would recommend introducing the topic eg marketing as a ‘new activity to spark discussion on the topic of marketing’, and get the participants started and more often than not give them a bit of time to warm up and they will have come around to the idea of it being like a card game themselves.
Card games is just the mode of delivery, it’s the conversation that surrounds it that matters.
