Colourblind Plus contains 3 different games within the one pack – a paired version, a small group version, and a challenging large group version. To improve team building, problem solving and change management within the team, a facilitator might begin with the paired version then bring groups together to form a smaller group to complete the task, and same again for the larger group version. Participants might have formed a common dialogue which they both understand in the paired version, however, they have to change and adapt their language when moving into the small group as others around them may not share the same reference.
Different group sizes can be played independently of each other and still provide a challenging task with enriched learning.
Colourblind Plus can be used by anyone, from an experienced facilitator to someone who is new to experiential learning, as we provide detailed facilitation notes for running the exercise. It has been used internationally across cultures to train and develop anyone over 16 years in any workplace scenario.
