The Feedback Game aims to help coach and facilitate a safe environment for giving and receiving feedback, either in a small group, or on a one-to-one coaching basis. Used for employee performance evaluation, or for personal development, there are a number of ways to use the Feedback Game to acknowledge each individual’s strengths and weaknesses.
Developed by Peter Gerrickens, more than 1 million people in the Netherlands have played this game!
The Feedback Game consists of 140 cards split into two groups:
Four blank cards are also enclosed so that you can add extra customised strengths/weaknesses if you wish. Three versions of playing the game are included for groups of between 2 and 8 players.
A complete and recently updated 172 page manual and guide to using The Feedback Game and a Strengths Approach is also available as an additional downloadable product. This manual has been created based on 20 year experience and contains 20 methods for playing the game, and a significant amount of research and theory on working with strengths.
Research shows that most people working in organisations today suffer from a lack of feedback, and they, in turn, fail to give feedback to the people around them.
An increase in the amount and the quality of feedback that people receive leads to an improvement in their motivation, the quality of their work, and their ability and willingness to develop.
By playing The Feedback Game, you will find out how well you know yourself and the other players.
Use this game for the purposes of:
The Feedback Game consists of 3 different activity versions, depending on how well the group know and trust each other.
The words and pictures on the cards depicting strengths convey positiveness. Each card carries a picture of the rainbow. The different colours of the rainbow symbolise the spectrum of different human qualities.
The words on the cards depicting weaknesses convey negativity. The colours of the rainbow are once again used, but in this case the angular shapes illustrate how a weakness can distort or hide a positive quality. For example, being 'determined' (a strength) may become 'obstructive' (a weakness), and 'playful' (a strength) may become 'undisciplined' (a weakness).
Version 1: 2 to 4 players
