Trainers, Program Managers, Counselors and Educators can now facilitate 11 high-powered character building team challenges, ice-breakers, games, debriefing and reviewing activities all with one set of cards.
GivaGeta Character Cards™ are a collection of 58 unique cards with two complete sets of 24 Character Cards (one set with blue backs, one set with green), 4 blank cards to add your own specific attribute or themes) and 6 instruction/information cards.
It is the first collaborative product from *Jim Cain Ph.D. of Teamwork & Teamplay and Jim & Jackie Cantoni, Founders of GivaGeta.
Each GivaGeta Character Card features one of 12 different character attributes such as leadership, honesty, positive attitude, responsibility, diversity and more. There are also dynamic illustrations to support each attribute, a collection of 96 thought provoking quotations related to the character topics and 52 unique ice-breaking questions.
"...the cards will be very helpful during our leadership retreat weekend and our staff training week. I can see them being used in a number of different ways for us especially as an icebreaker and a debriefing technique. We incorporate many Jim Cain activities in our trainings so this collaboration is very exciting! We're looking forward to having new material to use with our staff and campers."
~ Melanie D., Program Coordinator - Rome, ME.
Includes complete instructions for facilitating the 11 unique activities. One of the most powerful activities in this collection is The Match Game. Teams compete to memorize and turn over cards with 12 character trait matches. The first team to turn over all 24 cards correctly wins that round. But the real value of this activity comes after the cards have been turned over. Team members are now given the opportunity to discuss these character traits, and their relative merit and importance, within the context of their organization.
Ten more active, engaging, memorable and fun activities are included that your audiences will continue to discuss, long after the cards have been returned to their deck.
If you don't talk to your organization about character, who will? For an investment of only $39.95, it is a valuable strategy and resource to help reinforce the value of character in your organization.
Each Set Includes:
• 12 Experiential Character Building Team Activities with 6 complete instruction/information cards to lead them
• 52 GivaGeta Character Cards
~ 26 Green and 26 Blue Cards
