Summary

Peter Gerrickens’ The Development Game is the follow-up to his hugely successful The Feedback Game, which has sold over 20000 copies in 7 languages. Self-awareness is a prerequisite of any planned process of personal development. The good news is that most people leap at the chance to find out the answer to questions about themselves such as: 'How good am I at explaining what I want?', 'What do other people think of me when I talk to them?', or 'How successful am I as a teambuilder?'. The Development Game gives people a means of asking and answering these (and other) questions and of discovering whether they possess the skills they need to communicate and relate effectively to others. The Game helps you to: ¢ identify skills you think are important ¢ determine how far you have mastered these skills ¢ be aware of how others assess these skills ¢ realize your weaker skills which need better command. Overall, it provides you with a springboard for prioritizing and planning your own development. The Development Games Manual provides 30 different versions of The Development Game. These include: ¢ Group exercises for: - raising self-awareness - creating a personal skills profile - receiving and giving feedback on your own (and other people’s) skills ¢ Team exercises for: - generating team feedback - exploring the skills balance within a team - creating a team skills profile ¢ Icebreakers for introducing skills ¢ One-on-one Exercises for performance review and much more.
