We used the game at our training last week and it went great! The managers (it was HR training for managers) were a little unsure at first, but as the game rolled on there was so much laughing and discussing going on; it was awesome! The participants didn’t want to stop playing, and since then we have loaned out our copies to some of our departments to play with other teams. Thank you for coming up with such a fun and interactive game that is actually constructive, too.

I'm always looking for new ways to help my team grow and work together. I recently had my team play Choose Happiness @ Work. The results were great. We were talking--and laughing and yes, tears were shed. People really opened up and communicated about how they solve problems at work. We discussed real problems, and real solutions to solve those problems. I'd recommend this tool to anyone who wants to get their team talking and working together. It was a great experience and I know we’ll use it again.
Do you wish you had a tool that allowed you to safely discuss issues, build trust, and boost engagement in your workplace?
Choose Happiness @ Work is that tool.
The card game was a resounding success. In fact, if our group’s laughter disturbed any of our office members, I apologize, but my team really had fun. The game served as a great team building exercise, as well as an opportunity to touch on some of the ‘soft responsibilities’ that relate to solving problems at work.
This game can be an ice breaker, a team builder, a leadership development tool, a brainstorming inspiration, a cultural lever and a solo problem-solver. Really, you are only limited by your imagination. No matter how you use this game, it’s enjoyable and thought-provoking.
I will admit that I’m actually not a big fan of games…and I usually find that they can dumb down the science of positive psychology. This game, however, is both fun, effective at getting to new solutions, and the science is well-represented and not overly complicated or overly simplified. I found many suggestions that I wanted to pull out so that I could remember them at work!
With Choose Happiness @ Work you can look forward to learning more about the science of happiness at work, and learning more about how each other think and deal with workplace issues.
As a result, you can anticipate improved team member engagement, higher creativity, more team and individual productivity, and increased resilience to common, and not-so-common, workplace problems.

…They work better together. They absorb more information. They have more tools in their tool belt to help them handle whatever life throws them. They are healthier, they live longer — and they show up fully at work more often.” – Scott Crabtree

I checked this game out mostly as a fan of learning games and positive psychology, but I quickly found much more to like. I played it with co-workers, and within the first few minutes we had already come up with promising solutions to sticky problems. It side-stepped all the tension that could come from raising issues outside of this casual context. Best of all, it gave us concrete next steps. I wanted to take the cards out of the deck and tape them to my monitor! This is a tool I’ll turn to again and again.
