Tackle even the most difficult communication problems in today’s organisations

Communication Derailed is an engaging simulation game for all organisational levels. This game demonstrates the profound impact of poor communication then teaches the skills needed to communicate effectively.

This popular game addresses three common communication challenges: communication in teams, lateral communication, and communication during organisational stress. The modules can be run independently or in a series, depending on your learning goals. Trainers love this game because it is easy to facilitate and all parts are reusable. Everything you need to deliver a powerful learning event is included in one kit!.

How Communication Derailed Works

Working as employees of a toy manufacturing company, teams are charged with building new prototypes using fun, colourful parts. But the hands-on tasks become difficult when they are faced with obstacles that challenge their communication skills. Through the experience of working together and with the help of the facilitator, participants learn how to overcome these problems to improve their performance through effective communication.

Learning Outcomes

• Discover the impact of both effective and ineffective communication

• Identify damaging communication techniques and environments
