When we played the game “Conversations” I was amazed how it opened up conversations between people who didn’t know each other before playing. Days and weeks late people were still talking about the event and continued to talk to each other. At the time I had not long left an large organisation that was split on functional lines eg. Managers, Supervisors, Clerks, Sales staff, Engineers,Technicians and field workers. Few of these people in these groups had any time for people in other groups nor did they ever get to know each other and establish lasting friendship. The Conversations game creates an ideal situation for different groups of people in large organisations to break down the barriers that seem to quickly develop. When this happens productivity increases and other improvements to the work environment occur. Concequently I would recommend this game to any organisation that want’s it staff to really work together and achieve a high level of performance.

I work with Learning Annex and am their Calgary representative as well a new larger company that is in Canada called the Power Within. They are the people that brought Pres. Bill Clinton to Canada to speak last fall. We have an author speaking at least once a month. Barry is one of the best speakers we have enjoyed at our service. His average guy attitude put everyone at ease and he helped us go through a little exercise in our service that had everyone talking about how much they enjoyed it. As people talked from there hearts and we got to connect with each other on a deeper level.
