You'll Need:
• To ensure every participant has a different ‘Gossip’ Brief. You might like to distribute these by email in advance of the session.

Notes:
This communication exercise is based on a logic puzzle. It’s a challenging exercise, made more so when using video conferencing.

You will need a minimum of 3 participants, whilst 6 is the optimum number for the exercise. We do not recommend attempting this exercise with groups larger than 8, but if you must, we have included additional Gossip Briefs that enable the exercise to be used in groups of up to 10.

Please note that where there are more than 6 participants, some of the ‘gossip’ will be duplicated.

About

Time:
The exercise in this module can be completed in about 35 minutes. In total, allowing for discussion, we recommend allowing about 75 minutes for this module.

Aims:
• To encourage participants to think about whether staff are engaged with the values of the organisation they work for.
• To reflect on how shared values and a Balanced Business Scorecard approach can build employee engagement.
• To demonstrate how values can drive innovation and performance.

Group Size:
This module can be used with groups of up to 12 participants. It’s not suitable for 1-1 training.

Useful For:
All staff, but particularly those with managerial responsibility.

You'll Need:
• Staff will need access to PowerPoint or a similar application and have the basic skills required to use it.

Notes:
You can use the five values we’ve suggested for the exercise, or you can use your own organisation’s vision and values. However, we strongly recommend limiting the number of values used in this exercise to 6 or fewer. If the organisation you’re working with doesn’t have a concise set of values, you could use an exercise like ‘Feelings Cards’ to generate discussion and identify some core values for the future.

Remote/Virtual Delivery:
Remote Delivery requires a system that as an absolute minimum provides the following functionality:
• Face-to-face discussion.
• Share screen.
• Chat.
• Share files.

In addition, we strongly recommend using a system that provides for:
• Polls/Quizzes (not required).
