The Collaboration Game
It's Professional Learning Through Play
The Collaboration Game is based on a popular LEGO® simulation game from the business world. I have adapted it to reflect the realities of teamwork in an educational setting. The purpose of the game is to get an overview of the fundamentals of collaboration, communication and coaching (the 3 C’s).
Each participant experiences what it is like to be a key stakeholder in a child’s education by taking on a unique role such as teacher, parent, office administrator, ERO reviewer etc. You will all work together to achieve a common goal – getting all of the reports delivered to parents on time and to standard, all through the use of LEGO®.
The Collaboration Game creates an awareness of why the 3 C’s are so beneficial to all members of your community. After your team have experienced it- you’ll never make decisions the same way again!
It’s a hands-on experience that your team will continue to talk about, long after the LEGO® is packed away.
You will explore:
• The importance of expectations and how you can set them together as a team
• Clear communication that benefits every member of your school community
• Understanding that collaboration is working together to achieve something that you couldn’t do as a group of individuals working in isolation

Finally - a chance to understand what's going on with the people in your team
Sometimes we wonder why others struggle with the tasks that we find so simple, or why a concept makes complete sense to everyone else in the room except for us. My Exploring Personalities workshop, helps us to break down these barriers and create a shared understanding amongst your team of what it is that makes us all tick.
As the exclusive New Zealand Educational Partner for People Maps International, I have a deep understanding of the complexities of personalities. I can help your team to discover what their personality preferences are, and most importantly, how to work and communicate with people who do not share their particular preferences.
We take a deep dive into the four key elements of personalities:
- Energy Style – what do the term ‘introvert’ and ‘extrovert’ actually mean?
- Cognitive Style – where are you on the facts vs possibilities scale?
- Values Style – do you think more with your head or your heart?
- Self Management Style – structured or spontaneous – which one describes your work style?
Exploring Personalities is a tremendous way to lift the lid on the personalities within your school and can be done as a small group or with your entire community. It is a great team-building activity for your next teacher only day and a fun callback day activity to ensure that you are starting the new term/year with a fresh perspective.

Strategic Planning Masterclass
Shared Clarity = School Excellence
When it comes to writing the annual plan for your school, there is one element that is more crucial than any other: clarity. It is well known that the best performing teams have a shared ownership in the vision and direction of the organisation where all stake holders are working towards a clear and common goal.
A well constructed strategic plan/school charter can act as a guiding document which will support the learners, staff and whānau in your community to live and breathe the vision of your school. It allows everyone to realise the potential that is laid out in your action plan.
The Strategic Planning Masterclass is a collaboration between me and Rob Bull. He's a LEGO Serious Play facilitator and big deal in the business world. Together we take your team through a full on day of learning, planning and laughing!
