Empathy Toy for Communication

Presented by: Paul Wynia

In collaborative environments communication between team members is key to not only success, but survival.  But how aware are your team members of how they communicate?  Is there a common language and approach that is understood and agreed to? 
Using the Empathy Toy from Twenty One Toys we explore the difficulties that can occur when a common language is missing and how to create a framework that can be used to avoid misunderstandings and other pitfalls.  This game was developed by Paul to be used with Agile teams and is not part of the Empathy Toy Facilitator's guide.
