The Compass Games

A playful team building workshop, built around card games, that quickly puts everyone at ease and smiling, the perfect state for shifting perspective and generating surprising creative solutions to problems.

The Compass Games, created and developed by Jane Teresa Anderson

The Compass Games Corporate Workshop with Jane Teresa Anderson

 

Creative Innovative Problem Solving

I initially created The Compass Games as a personal tool for people who don’t remember their dreams but want to experience some of the benefits of gaining insight into the unconscious mind, transforming limiting beliefs, and shifting personal perspective so they can welcome more positive life experiences.

During testing and development, I realised the speed at which participants came up with creative solutions for problems and gained empathy and understanding for fellow participants’ viewpoints made The Compass Games ideal for the workplace. I took notice, and developed the corporate version of The Compass Games.

Testimonials

“I have been enthralled with Jane Teresa’s Compass Games.  They represent a transformative means to unlock unconscious barriers and to achieve unfettered creative thinking.  The results are profound inasmuch as the resonance that affects other areas of life: you may complete a session and believe you’ve contributed to work strategy and yet the shift in perspective provides a new way of thinking in home and personal life.  We learn that life is not all that we thought it once was and rigidity dissolves.  If you can welcome this, the experience is very empowering.

Jane Teresa’s ability to facilitate a workshop with sensitivity, creativity, and empathy is unparalleled.

The Compass Games training can help us move beyond the norm.  If innovation and excellence is what you strive to achieve then coaching, like this, is necessary to positively affect the neurophysiology of thinking pathways and go beyond a structured norm!”

The Compass Games enable participants to

  • Experience and acquire tools to extend creative problem-solving;
  • Engage, exercise, and extend right brain functions, particularly those involved in intuitive and creative problem-solving;
  • Shift and broaden perspective (overcome narrow and habitual perspectives);
  • Develop appreciation of, and insight into, other people’s perspectives on situations, problems, solutions;
  • Discover transformative insight into the unconscious programming behind personal values, attitudes, beliefs, judgments, particularly where there is a tendency toward an extreme attitude or viewpoint;
  • Develop a platform for innovation.

 

Custom designed for you

The Compass Games begin with the task of solving an outrageous, playful problem, achieved by playing the game. There are no winners or losers. This is a co-creative game with no wrong answers, no wrong solutions.

As group rapport is built and participants begin to acquire the tools and experience the shifts that open them to more innovative, creative problem-solving, the tasks to be solved during the game begin to look more like the kind of problems encountered in the workplace.

Depending on your requirements, an actual workplace issue or problem can be introduced into the game once participants have played earlier rounds.

As well as the focus on problem-solving, The Compass Games is a team-builder and empathy-builder that naturally translates into better workplace relationships.

 

Group size
