Playing with Style is a collection of ten different training games and training activities that help individuals to quickly learn the common characteristics of each of the four personal styles in the HRDQ Style model:

• Direct

• Spirited

• Considerate

• Systematic.

Playing with Style also develops an understanding of the strengths and potential trouble spots associated with each style. Game play ranges from one-player solitaire to large group activities, and most games can be played in less than 30 minutes.

Speed (8 – 20)
Which Style? (8 – 20)

Each game takes approximately 15 – 30 minutes to facilitate and play. The choice is yours – play one, play some, or play them all. We guarantee the games will be the hit with any audience.
