ActeeCommunication: Hone your Communication skills
Welcome to the ActeeCommunication games
ActeeCommunication is a learning concept and a simulation game which develops the relational communication skills of professionals in the public and private sector. ActeeCommunication is a training tool to become more aware of the importance of better relational communication. As a professional training with ActeeCommunication, you can learn to lead and manage stakeholder relations.
Learning the art of better communication and the ability to be a better listener of the person in front of you, this learning tool helps you to become a professional with a more convincing and reliable voice.
ActeeCommunication develops the player’s ability to analyze own communication practice: ’How do my intentions and actions influence the motivation, hope and ability of the stakeholder?’ ‘Why is the stakeholder turning the back on his responsibility, when I’m helping him overcome obstacles?’ ‘What does it take for me as a professional to be more clear and focused in my communication with the stakeholder?’
ActeeCommunication is based on Daniel Goleman’s theory (2003) on the connection between leadership styles, personal competencies of the leader, the organization’s results and the well-being of the employees. One of Goleman’s key points is that the best leaders are those able to switch between leadership styles and who continously develop the personal competencies behind the respective styles.
What do I gain?
Before future pilots are allowed to transport real passengers, they have to train for thousands of hours in a flight simulator. They have to practice flying in a fictional storm, manage communication with the control tower and practice staying on course. Consider ActeeCommunication your flight-simulator when it comes to training your stakeholder communication. Do not fret if you crash a few times during the playthrough – practice makes perfect. Based on the reactions from your stakeholders, you will improve your sense of which communication styles are relevant in which situations.
The ActeeCommunication games provides insight as to how different communication styles affect stakeholders in different situations. It is worthwhile to notice, that the styles can either work with you, or against you, depending on the situation. Maybe you already recognize some of this from your own workplace. We hope that the game sparks your curiosity and that you discuss the learnings with your colleagues.
