In many situations status influences both leadership and teamwork. In fact, some people really want to become leaders because of the increased status it gives them. Others do not want to become leaders because of the increased status it gives them. This game explores how status impacts both leadership and teamwork in groups.

  • Helping people see that too many times we do mistakenly “judge books by their covers.”
  • Increasing awareness of how sometimes status can limit collaboration.
  • Challenging people to see how status creates cliques.
  • Illustrating how money can influence status.
  • Reminding people to treat others the way they want to be treated.

Thank you for doing such a nice job with the students. They were engaged and the game with the cards really hit home for all of them. I bet it made some of the adults that were in the room think as well. What a neat way to drive that point home.Macy's Great American Marching Band
